Feeling the heat of busy season? Keep calm and eliminate the backroom headaches by putting Inlanta’s expert team of mortgage professionals behind you!

What Sets Inlanta Apart from the Competition?

Inlanta offers professional, honest, production support services that are designed to help create growth for each branch. Trained professionals will help with every aspect of your business, from administrative support to compliance, processing, marketing, and IT. Inlanta also has its own Funding Department, which offers fast underwriting, closings, and funding.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Partnership?

Although each case varies, the primary candidates include top-producing originators with management experience who want to see more of their profits and small-to-medium sized mortgage broker/banker firms that are looking to increase profits by reducing costs, eliminating administrative headaches, and obtaining USDA/FHA/VA licensing without the expense.

Truth in Testimonials – Hear What Our Employees Have to Say

Have you ever read a great restaurant review that actually swayed you to go there? How about a negative review that made you question using a certain brand, product, or service?

In today’s world, online reviews are considered just as important as personal recommendations. That is why here at Inlanta, we take our reviews seriously and we understand that there’s truth in testimonials.

While we’d love to spend some time giving you our own testimonial on what makes Inlanta great, we’d rather have you hear it from our team members themselves.

Take this testimonial from one of our newest Branch Managers, Sean Reilly, for example.

Sean says, “My experience with Inlanta has exceeded expectations. I’ve worked for a wide range of companies, from a big bank to a small correspondent lender to a large direct retail lender, and one theme has been consistent: processing/underwriting is a struggle. What I’ve been most impressed by with Inlanta is not how easy everything is, but how helpful, responsive, and responsible the processing and underwriting teams have been. Instead of passing the buck back to me, they actually talk to the customer, find solutions, and save us all time and stress. It’s a novel concept, one that I’ve been asking management teams to implement (in vain) for a decade. I’m glad it’s not an issue at Inlanta!”

For more of our truthful testimonials, we encourage you to watch the above video, visit our pages on Glassdoor and Indeed, and reach out to us (or any one of our Branch Managers) to find out what it’s really like to be on Team Inlanta.

If you’d like to know what our customers have to say, please visit our Google+, Facebook, Yelp, SocialSurvey, or Zillow profiles.

Inlanta Mortgage Promotes Paul Buege to President

 Original press release from PR Web

Inlanta Mortgage Chairman, John Knowlton, announced the promotion of Mr. Paul Buege to the role of President.

Mr. Buege is currently the Chief Operating Officer and will continue those responsibilities. Nicholas DelTorto will remain as CEO. “I am proud to announce Paul’s promotion to President. It has been a privilege to work with and get to know him over the past five years. Paul and his team have developed a premier service platform for our loan originators and consumers. He is dedicated to Inlanta and the continued growth and success of our company,” Knowlton said in a company statement announcing the move.

“Our senior management team has positioned us for a solid future. We have worked together for many years and that continuity in leadership translates into a consistent focus on improving our platform, performance for the branches, and highest level of progressive services and technology for our referral partners and consumers,” said DelTorto.

“Paul has done outstanding work in developing a sales and service accountability culture at Inlanta. Our ‘mortgage banking for grown-ups’ approach allows the true mortgage professional to operate using their personally developed skills to build on their success,” Knowlton adds.

We Must Choose: Evolve or Become Extinct

Blog post was written by Dave Stephan, Inlanta’s TPO Manager. 

I’m pretty sure when Charles Darwin was kicking around the South Pacific in the HMS Beagle back in the 1830’s, he didn’t think someone was going to write about his theory of evolution and mortgage banking some 190 years later.

While there is much to learn from Darwin’s theory, we know this – If something doesn’t continue to evolve, it can fail to grow and flourish.  At Inlanta, we’ve been building a theme for 2018 around evolution.  We’re fortunate to be on the horizon of our twenty-fifth year in business and throughout that time, we’ve been witness to our own growth and evolution as well as the industry around us.

Twenty-five years ago, there was no real public internet, no email, no LP or DU, credit scores were barely in use, and fax machines were pretty much the height of technology.  Paper 1003’s and verifications were the norm.  Dot matrix printers noisily churned out closing docs and a 30-Year Fixed could be had at a cool 8%…

While evolution is necessary, it also serves a purpose– survival of the fittest.  Countless ideas and companies have come and gone the way of the dodo bird in the last 25 years.  Much like the catastrophe that wiped out the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago, the Great Recession was a meteor that changed the path of the mortgage industry forever.  We saw the near extinction of the mortgage broker and wholesale lending, with large banks dominating the landscape.

But now, another twist. The regulatory fallout from the impact of the financial crisis has caused the largest banks to rack up approximately $138 billion in fines between 2010 and 2014 and, for the first time, non-bank originators are capturing more market share than their financial institution counterparts.  For 2018 and beyond, rising rates will mean even less refi opportunity and fierce competition for purchase business.

So, back to the earlier idea that if something doesn’t continue to evolve, it can fail to grow and flourish.  The question is, how has your institution’s mortgage lending program evolved?  Inlanta’s Third Party Origination (TPO) program can help you take advantage of every mortgage opportunity, including FHA, VA, and USDA Rural Development and help you be a survivor in today’s competitive marketplace.

Passion is what sets us apart.
