Inlanta Mortgage #1 FHA Lender in Wisconsin

Inlanta-Success

Inlanta Experiencing Strong Growth – #1 FHA Lender in Wisconsin

Inlanta Mortgage, Inc. is experiencing strong growth highlighted by the fact that the company was the #1 FHA (Federal Housing Authority) lender in May in the state of Wisconsin. In addition to the increase in Inlanta’s FHA loan volume, the company has seen increases in USDA, VA and conventional loan volume, which has led to an upswing in new hires.

An FHA mortgage loan is insured by HUD and allows a borrower to purchase a home with limited down payment funds and less demanding credit requirements. The FHA loan program also helps first time homebuyers which have been mostly absent from the recovering housing market.

Inlanta President Nicholas DelTorto said, “There is no denying that the mortgage market has been solid lately. It’s summer, a time traditionally good for our industry, but we are also experiencing rising mortgage rates and increasing home prices. Buyers recognize that their purchasing power diminishes as rates rise and property values increase, prompting them to get off the proverbial fence. Inlanta continues to offer a wide variety of programs, highly personalized service and quick loan turn times compared to our competitors – so we are enjoying a relatively larger share of the mortgage business that’s out there.”

Inlanta Welcomes Dozens of New Employees

Due to the increased volume, the number of new hires at Inlanta Mortgage has increased dramatically. Since January 2015, Inlanta Mortgage has welcomed seventy new employees. Of the new hires approximately thirty were hired to fill positions at the Inlanta Mortgage corporate headquarters in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Positions filled include underwriters, loan processors, quality control specialists, as well as marketing and information technology professionals. Inlanta continues to seek qualified mortgage professionals. Inlanta Mortgage job openings can be found at Inlanta.com/jobs.

Contributing to the increasing loan volume, Inlanta welcomed forty new branch employees including new offices in Oswego, Illinois; Green Bay, Wisconsin; Sarasota, Florida; and Carpentersville, Illinois. Inlanta continues to expand and encourages ethical lending professionals to learn more about the Inlanta support platform and culture. Consumers and real estate professionals can depend on the community-based branch network to provide financing options to serve their local market.

Inlanta Welcomes New Branch Office in Green Bay

Inlanta-Green-Bay

Inlanta Expands in Fox Valley – New Branch Office in Green Bay

Inlanta Mortgage is pleased to welcome the experienced origination team of David Hartman and Eric Johnson. Hartman and Johnson will co-manage an Inlanta Mortgage branch office at 1087 Velp Avenue in Green Bay.

David Hartman has been a licensed Mortgage Originator since 1998, previously working at PrimeLending as a Production Manager.  David was also the founder and President of Mortgage Headquarters Inc from 2003 to 2013.

Eric Johnson has been a licensed Mortgage Originator since 1996.  He was one of the founders of Cornerstone Mortgage and left that organization to become Branch Manager and a loan originator with Inlanta Mortgage.

Hartman said, “I am extremely excited to join the Inlanta team and get back to originating home loans and providing exceptional customer service to my clients and referral partners.”

Johnson said, “The opportunities and loan products that we can offer our clients through Inlanta are without compare.  Inlanta is a large enough platform to be able to offer exceptional pricing to our borrowers, and as a Wisconsin based company, it is small enough to still care about its customers.”

Vice President of Branch Development Joe Ramis said, “We are pleased to welcome Eric and Dave to the Inlanta team.  Inlanta continues to grow by partnering with successful loan originators and managers with strong ethical values like Eric and Dave.
