Some call it going above and beyond. Others say they give 110%. At Nations Lending, going beyond our stakeholders’ expectations is just the way we do business. Adding real value to our partnerships, customer experience and community engagement is the cornerstone of Nations Lending Philadelphia. With the full support and resources of Nations Lending’s corporate office, I know we can add some serious firepower to your REMAX 365 team.
Name someone more ingrained in the community than Jim Tinnes. He’s a lifelong New Jersean and has been in the mortgage business here for more than 20 years. Jim has been building his referral network in Philadelphia and throughout New Jersey throughout that time, and he’s licensed to do business in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania, as well as in Florida.
But above all else, Jim’s team is dedicated to you. We’re proposing that Jim get a desk in your office, because that’s how much of a priority your clients are to us. Nations Lending is willing to offer monthly MSA - amount to be determined. Jim is a fixture in the real estate finance community in our pocket of the Atlantic. He and his wife previously managed a local Pit Bull rescue operation, and they continue to volunteer with charities focused on eradicating esophageal cancer, which has impacted the Tinnes family.
Nations Lending stands behind Jim’s team and the partners with whom they work. Nations cares about people, and everything we do is about making sure clients have the smoothest possible homebuying experience. It’s that focus on people and partnerships that makes Nations one of the fastest growing lenders in the industry. Nations understands that at the end of the day, people do business with people.
Jim has the full support of the Nations Lending marketing team, as well as the other departments, all the way up to the executives, back at the corporate office. The marketing team routinely offers direct, one-to-one service, and this potential partnership will be a company-wide priority.
Nations Lending is licensed in 47 states. We’re a one-stop shop for all kinds of mortgage lending situations.
• Direct to Agency (Fannie/Ginnie/Freddie).
• We service 98% of our loans. We own the experience.
• In-house underwriting for 203K and robust Non-QM products (Bank Statement Loans, Foreign Nationals, Asset Depletion, Non-Warrantable Condos ).
By generating leads and distributing them to realtors, you will have a recruiting advantage within your market. 80% of these exclusive, preapproved leads DO NOT have an established relationship with a realtor. Our marketing team then customizes ads targeting these leads and people like them, which can be based on your listings. Nations Lending acquired 1.15 million of these leads in 2018.
Our industry is changing quickly. Even quasi-partners like Zillow have started to encroach on our core business model of Real Estate Agency and Mortgage Lending. Zillow and others, like Lending Tree, will be direct competitors. Partner with a local entrepreneur who is engaged and invested in our community and is fully backed by a lender that is positioned to continually invest heavily in technology/marketing. Partner with a local entrepreneur who understands that 95% of buyer journeys start online. But perhaps most importantly, partner with a local entrepreneur who cares enough to give your REMAX 365 team the service and attention you deserve and should expect, so we both grow, as partners.
For more than 20 years Jim Tinnes has been building his referral network in Philly and Jersey, while maintaining an immaculate borrower reputation, backed by online testimonials. A portion of Jim’s media spend will go toward fostering this relationship through paid search, social media ad buys, aggregator purchases and other avenues. We are ready to commit to a partner with whom we will share our resources and knowledgebase.
This is a prototypical WIN-WIN for both teams.
We have the tools, including a co-branded, customer-facing mobile app, to give your listings the buzz around town they deserve. You’ll get updates at every step of the customer’s loan journey.
Leveraging our technology, we will create a single, co-branded website for every listing, with the push of a button. From that website, we can create digital and offline flyers for every Open House. With social media shares from both the REMAX 365 team and the Nations Lending team, watch the online interest turn into Open House foot traffic. The co-branded functionality of the site allows potential homebuyers to schedule a viewing directly from the property site.
Your REMAX 365 branding and your agent’s contact information and profile picture are attached to every client in the NationsGo app. Transparent communication means that you stay informed on the client’s loan application every step of the way. You’ll get a push notification for every loan milestone after the client fills in the easy-to-use loan application section of the app.
Customizable buttons allow us to tailor the in-app experience to the way you do business, and to include all your listings right there, in the app. Clients can answer some of their own questions with the app’s easy-to-use mortgage calculator, and upload loan-related documents from their phone, directly into the mobile app.
Now that your listings have their own dedicated websites, using Nations Lending data, we can spend a portion of the budget allocated to your team on driving foot traffic to those listings through boosted or sponsored social media posts. No co-brokering here - your REMAX 365 team will capture both ends of the commission on these sales, thereby increasing profitability for your agents.
But it’s more than just spending money. Nations Lending’s marketing team will create the ad as well, and tailor it to the way you do business.
Our commitment to your success goes beyond our amazing technology, though. Each month, Jim’s team will provide training seminars for our two most important stakeholders: homebuyers, and you, our REMAX 365 Realtor teammates.
First-time Homebuyer Seminars
• Program covers topics like, “What to expect during the homebuying process?”, Qualifying for a Loan, and the different loan programs available for each buyer
Best Serving Veteran Homebuyers
• Program covers a primer on the VA loan process, tips for how to best serve veteran homebuyers and differences between VA loans and conventional loans
