Movement Mortgage is a private mortgage bank with more than 3,000 employees spread across some 300 offices in more than 40 states. The bank was founded in the midst of the financial crisis and Great Recession, and that fact has informed its mission. “We formed the company with a vision to restore service and integrity to the mortgage business,” says co-founder and CEO Casey Crawford. “We exist to love and value people by leading a movement of change in our industry, corporate culture and communities.” That mission extends to Movement Mortgage’s staff as well. The bank’s Thrive initiative promotes employee wellness through health programs, counseling, financial education and other initiatives for healthy living.
QUICK TIP: “Having a strong culture fuels our success within the industry and paves the way for our employees to grow personally and professionally.”
Movement Mortgage’s goal is to be the mortgage bank of choice for real estate agents. “Our process was designed to best serve real estate agents, allowing them to do more work in less time and focus on what matters most: their clients,” says Crawford. The bank’s loan officers have a goal to process loans within seven days. “Movement Mortgage underwrites every loan at the beginning of the loan process. Upfront underwriting and seven-day processing gives borrowers and real estate agents a major advantage in a crowded market, and prevents last-minute rushing.”
