The HomeBridge Difference HomeBridge has a sales culture, meaning there is an emphasis on providing product and service with the goal of getting and retaining customers. I recently saw a PowerPoint summary of an underwriting meeting. It contained this quote: "We are and will always be a sales-driven company. That doesn't mean we don't maintain quality. It is just a reminder that no one gets a paycheck until a salesperson makes a sale." This mindset sets HomeBridge apart from many competitors who lose sight of this truth.

Teamwork All HomeBridge associates work together to ensure that customers are at the closing table on their scheduled day and time. This may mean working late, looking at special circumstances or whatever the case may be. But, no matter the circumstance, all of our people are willing to do whatever is necessary to get the job done for our customers.

Growth I have seen the size of the company grow nearly ten-fold since I've been here. Today, a Mortgage Loan Originator has all of the resources necessary to go out and sell confidently.

The HomeBridge Difference At HomeBridge everyone is working toward a common goal. And it's not just to close a loan and move on but, rather to become the true "Partner for the Path Ahead" for our customers and business partners. At HomeBridge I know that I'm part of something bigger than myself, and it is an honor to work with this group of professionals.

Teamwork Our customers and business partners should describe their experience as positive, informative and fulfilling. Our West fulfillment center continues to get loans from application to closing, day in and day out, while being mindful of closing dates. Our Net Promoter Score is a reflection of this hard work and dedication to meeting client requests.

The HomeBridge Mission HomeBridge associates have a way of transforming their level of care to motivate those around them and bring everyone's performance to the next level. There is nothing more motivating than knowing that the person next to you is working to do their best, ultimately making your team the best it can be and driving the overall success of the group.

The HomeBridge Difference HomeBridge, unlike other companies I've worked for, is structured for success both internally and externally. This company rises above the others with a can-do attitude.

Teamwork The operations leadership (processing, underwriting and closing) work closely to make sure all of the work needed is covered so that the job gets done. And HomeBridge has a terrific system and team that consistently updates information for associates to be on top of current policies and procedures.

The HomeBridge Mission Leading by example is not the main thing; it's the only thing. And the HomeBridge leadership team does exactly that. The team pushes me daily to do my best and be my best each and every day.

The HomeBridge Difference HomeBridge does a better job than most mortgage companies at risk management as opposed to risk avoidance.

Building Trust I can't recall us missing a closing. This, combined with our flexibility compared to those with an identical product mix, makes HomeBridge the go-to lender for business partners.

The HomeBridge Mission It's very easy to forget that there is a human element when looking at the data in a loan. But HomeBridge associates are all very well aware that every file represents a person.
