What does success mean to us at Open Mortgage?
It means that as our valued partners, our Loan Originators feel supported during every part of the mortgage process, for every client.
It means that the clients know what mortgage options are available, and which one is the best option for their personal needs.
It means we did everything we possibly could to make things right and to get the loan closed.
It means we did a good job and we did it as a team.
It means we love what we do because we know what we do changes people’s lives for the better. It empowers them to reach the ultimate American dream. It provides them a path to homeownership. This is why we come to work each day, ready to tackle whatever comes in the door. This is why we care so very much: Because we change lives for the better and we get to do it every single day.
At Open Mortgage, we recognize our ultimate success depends on our talented and dedicated workforce. We understand the contribution each employee makes to our accomplishments, so our goal is to provide a comprehensive program of competitive benefits to attract and retain the best employees.
That’s why we offer the following benefits to members of the Open Mortgage family: Medical, Dental, Vision, 401k, Weekly Payroll, HSA, and more.
I have been at Open for I believe about 12 years now. We joined Open because we wanted a more “personal” touch with the lender that we partnered with, and did not just want to be considered a number or “just another branch”. I thought that would be provided by Open, and it was. As Open has grown considerably over the last 12 or so years that I have been a part of it, I feel like the “personal” touch has not withered in any way. As Open continues to grow and implement new things, the process continually seems to get even better and better. I look forward to many more years working with my Open Mortgage family.
Sam Rosenberg, Loan Officer, Overland Park, KS
I have been at Open Mortgage for 2.5 years. I was presented with the opportunity for a new beginning and I could not pass it up. I love the communication at this company. I have had phone calls or zoom meetings with different levels from the company. I have never felt a sense of team like this in any job I have ever had. Sky’s the limit and if I put in the work I know Open will be there to support myself or anyone who steps up for the challenge.
Denise Cordell, Loan Officer, Overland Park, KS
I have been with the company for 11 years now. The systems and communication from top to bottom is welcomed by the employee. At Open we have a “Think Forward approach to creating a LO user friendly company that works with the client and our mortgage partners”. It’s not just being an employee but part of the future that we all will benefit from our efforts to grow with Open.
Robert Bearce, Branch Manager, Gladstone, MO
I joined Open Mortgage in January of 2020. The positive attitude of everyone I met and spoke with made me feel confident that the support they said they would offer was sincere. Since then, every department has continued to prove that to be true. Open Mortgage makes you feel like family, and with that support, closing loans is much easier and efficient. Open Mortgage is progressive and growing, and because we’re all growing together, that makes for a great team!
Alisha DiMaggio, Loan Officer Assistant/Office Manager, Bentonville, AR
I have been with Open since 2018. I joined, because of the culture, it is one of the kindest, most supportive places to work in the Reverse Mortgage world. Everyone wants to help you, make the company successful and it’s a great place to work! The company works hard to support its people and does its best to get our loans done! The best thing that Open does is support and show genuine appreciation towards the LO.The new leadership that was recently hired is going to be great for Open. I am excited about the future of Open Mortgage!
Marge Bottari, Branch Manager, Oakland, CA
I was working at a big bank and needed a change because of lack of support. The culture, support and compensation were the main reasons I made the move, and never regretted it. We are here to close loans and give clients and Real Estate agents the best chance to get them to the closing table. Everyone, from Loan Officers, to Processors, to Operation staff, works as a team. At no point have I ever felt that someone is working against, to the contrary, even when the underwriter gets a file that doesn’t meet guidelines, he/she suggests ways to help restructure the loan to help the borrower close. I love the vision that the owners and Sr. Management have for the company. We keep adding new investors and new products to attract all different kinds of borrowers. Open Mortgage is a great place of growth for any LO!
Mehdi Kouchtaf, Branch Manager, McKinney, TX
I was in the car business for approximately 10 years prior to the mortgage business. I first learned about Open Mortgage when I bought my house. I liked the process and started inquiring about the mortgage business. After I closed on my home loan about 8-10 months later I elected to work for Open Mortgage. There are many things Open does best, but some of the reasons my referral partners use me is because of the process we have at Open Mortgage. There is an open line of communication between sales and corporate. Everyone is willing to help reach the finish line and goes beyond expectations to make sure we do everything we can to make closing dates with minimal delays. Open is always looking and implementing ways to get better and streamline the mortgage process. In the last 6 years, there have been many changes, but one thing that sets us apart from other companies is the willingness to get better and make sure we have every opportunity to be successful and grow as loan officers.
David Vonfeldt, Loan Officer, Wichita, KS
Joining Open Mortgage has been the best decision in my long career in Lending. Whether you’re a Branch Manager, Loan Officer or in Operations it always comes down to having the right support. Our team has been with Open for two years now and daily we have felt welcomed and tremendous support. This is the reason I plan to stay with them until I finally decide to retire. They really are an incredible company to represent.
Sherry Sherrell, Branch Manager, Bentonville, AR
I have been with Open Mortgage since February of 2019. I joined this company because it was a good fit with my past experience in the mortgage industry. Open Mortgage is a great company to work for. From management to processors, everyone works together to get buyers into homes. I’m excited to see what new and innovative products the company has to offer as the mortgage industry continues it’s ever changing journey.
Gina Scott, Loan Officer, Tulsa, OK
I’ve been at Open for about 6 years. I wanted a new career after my son was born, and was lucky enough to know Crystal Whitten already and was able to join this great company part time at first, then full time, and have grown in my career and position since then! Open Mortgage makes everyone feel included, from the very bottom to the very top. I’ve always felt a sense of family working here which is incredible! Everyone is approachable, no one makes you feel stupid for having questions and everyone has each other’s backs and realizes all sectors of the business have to work together to get files to closing! I’m excited about the prospect of growing our branch and helping more and more people become homeowners.
Leah Wood, Processor, Fort Worth, TX
I joined Open Mortgage in February 2012. I joined on the understanding that Open Mortgage has a great Culture. Well, it was true then and it still is today. Open Mortgage is continuously improving the Culture daily through emphasis on competitive pricing, great marketing, innovation, and staying one step ahead of the competition. I look forward to Open Mortgage’s continued growth and its commitment to helping families obtain their dream of homeownership.
James Shytle, Branch Manager, Columbus, GA
I have been at Open Mortgage for 11 years. I originally joined Open Mortgage for the correspondent line of business. The best thing that Open Mortgage does is allow branches and loan officers to operate fairly independently. My favorite thing about Open Mortgage is that they are always looking for ways the branches can excel.
