Inlanta Mortgage Adds 3 New Branches

Three New Branches Join Inlanta Mortgage

As the mortgage industry continues to consolidate, veteran mortgage professionals seek to align themselves with mortgage banking companies that will provide them with comprehensive support services that enable them to best serve their customers and their communities. Inlanta Mortgage is pleased to announce that three groups of seasoned mortgage veterans have recently joined the Inlanta team looking to take advantage of Inlanta’s support services.

Recent additions to the Inlanta Mortgage family include fourteen year mortgage veteran Yvette Clermont and her De Pere, Wisconsin mortgage company; fifteen year veteran Dan Palmer of Schaumburg, Illinois; Laura Leonhard and her team of experienced mortgage professionals in Marshfield, Wisconsin.

Branch partners and their teams receive the full support of an experienced administrative team headquartered in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Support services included information technology (IT), marketing, compliance support, in-house underwriting, as well as experienced funding and processing departments.

In a recent study by Hammersmith, mortgage professionals are changing their preferred employers from large national players to regional, more local, mortgage bankers in seeking comprehensive support services for their branch operations. These mortgage professionals also place a high value on ethical business practices. In fact, integrity was listed as the most valuable characteristic sought from company leadership. Inlanta Mortgage has maintained a commitment to the highest ethical standards since it was founded in 1993.

The Hammersmith survey also asked mortgage loan originators what one tool or resource they would change about their current company. 30% of respondents reported they wanted better marketing platform/continuity support while nearly 20% reported better technology (including integrated systems, easy to use and accessible over the web). Inlanta Mortgage’s marketing support team can assist loan officers with every aspect of their marketing plan including web site development, advertising copy and layout, and advanced customer relationship management. Inlanta Mortgage’s technology platform was recognized by Mortgage Technology Magazine and awarded with their prestigious Top 25 Tech Savvy Lenders recognition.
