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 Columbia. With the full support and resources of Nations Lending’s corporate office, I know we can add some serious firepower to your Remax 100 team.
WHY DAN & COLLIN?
While Dan is a lifelong Marylander, except for his time in college at Duke, who has been serving homebuyers in Columbia for more than seven years, Collin made a splash onto the scene that the whole mortgage industry felt in 2018. According to the industry publication the Scotsman Guide, Collin was trusted with more loan volume from veteran borrowers in 2018 than all but 17 individual loan originators — in the nation.
They’re busy making a name for themselves in the community. But above all else, the team at Nations Lending Columbia is dedicated to you.
Nations Lending stands behind Dan and Collin, 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.
Dan and Collin have 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 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 ).
With the Nations Lending team generating additional leads and distributing them to Remax 100 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 across the company 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 in the future. So, why not 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 100 team the service and attention you deserve and should expect, so we both grow, as partners.
Dan and Collin maintain an immaculate reputation, backed by online testimonials. A portion of the team’s media spend will go toward fostering this relationship through paid search, social media ad buys 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 100 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 100 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 100 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. At least once per quarter, Dan and Collin, or other members of their team, will provide networking and training seminars for our two most important stakeholders: homebuyers, and you, our Remax 100 teammates.
