DENVER, 25 October 2021 / PRNewswire / – Five years ago today, the chairman of RE / MAX Holdings, Inc. and co-founder of RE / MAXÂ® Dave liniger stood on a stage in Texas and launched a bold new way for real estate professionals to expand their reach and enter the mortgage brokerage space. He was joined on stage by Morrison neighborhood, which would lead an innovative new brand called MottoÂ® Mortgage, the first national mortgage brokerage franchise in the United States
Motto Mortgage Expands Nationwide Presence and Announces Integration with Wemlo Loan Brokering System Technology
A lot has happened since October 2016. The award-winning, fast-growing brand has become one of Liniger’s lasting legacies, transforming the mortgage industry. Today, the network includes more than 175 open offices in nearly 40 states and the District of Colombia.
âWhile we are selling Motto Mortgage franchises at an almost record rate, so far this year we have opened more offices than we have sold. We aim to reach 200 open offices by the end of 2021 said Morrison, president of Devise Franchise, LLC. âOur nationwide presence of over 175 open offices illustrates the appeal of the Motto Mortgage brand as a turnkey solution. national brand, award-winning technology automations, and comprehensive compliance, technology and marketing support – all before their first day of operation. “
Motto Franchising recently launched an Approved Provider Program, offering the healthcare and payroll options of the Motto Mortgage network which are provided, respectively, by the US Back Office and Paychex.
In addition, with the acquisition by RE / MAX Holdings, Inc. of wemloSM last year, the Motto Mortgage offices now have access to an operationally well-grounded third-party loan processing team that upholds the same high standards of customer service that define the Motto Mortgage brand.
Last week, wemlo announced its Loan Brokering Systemâ (LBSâ ), a revolutionary new technology designed to meet the needs of mortgage originators with a focus on their specific compliance priorities and workflows. And, more importantly, the streamlined Wemlo LBS doesn’t require brokers to navigate irrelevant system tasks designed for other lending channels.
âWe have spent years gathering real-world experiences from hundreds of Motto mortgage originators to understand exactly where traditional origination systems fall short for the broker channel,â explained Dustin Morton, vice president of product and strategy for wemlo and Motto Franchising. âOur takeaways were about how we harness life’s most precious resource – time. Our technology teams know that every minute of revamping retail lending components in legacy lending systems was a minute that wasn’t spent developing value-added solutions for our franchises. Our loan originators realize that every moment of clicking âignoreâ in software is not a moment spent helping borrowers achieve their homeownership dreams. Our network offices needed the efficiency of a specially designed platform, and the broker channel deserves modern technology that simplifies the lending process. “
The wemlo LBS will be officially launched to the public in January 2022, but Motto Mortgage offices will have the first access to integration this year. Motto Mortgage Brokerages receive the LBS platform at no additional cost, as well as discounts on integrated wemlo third-party loan processing offers and exclusive LBS product features.
Since its inception, Motto Franchising has sold an average of one new franchise per week, with over 250 sales to date, and aspires to open over 1,000 franchises over the next few years. About 75% of Motto Mortgage Brokers are owners of small businesses in real estate or related industries, suspending their licenses with brands such as RE / MAX, Keller Williams, Century 21, eXp, Allstate and more – looking all to vertically integrate their offerings by opening a collateral mortgage business. Loan originators looking to open a mortgage brokerage with company-level tools and support, and investors looking to grow into a financial franchise system make up the remaining 25% of franchise owners.
âFive years ago we were betting on the mortgage broker channel, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions we’ve made as a business,â said Adam contos, CEO, RE / MAX Holdings, Inc. âThe Motto Mortgage brand is an integral part of our portfolio and as we continue to rapidly develop our mortgage segment, I am optimistic about the future. This deductible is one that you will want to keep. with a keen eye, we are doing great things. “
