Neighborhood Mortgage Solutions, a Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO) based in Michigan is pleased to announce the launch of a new loan origination arm, the NMS Retail Lending Division. In support, NMS also recently appointed a licensed, dedicated Mortgage Loan Originator, Brett Volz, to write loans and assist in growing the new division.
Neighborhood Mortgage Solutions (NMS) is not new to the mortgage landscape. Founded in 2008 by three credit unions in Michigan, NMS currently services more than 100 credit unions and is licensed in 21 states across the country. This firm foundation and industry footprint allows NMS to enhance their solution offerings, such as this new origination option for CUs.
The NMS Retail Lending Division was built to assist credit unions that don’t currently have the resources, staffing or experience to offer mortgage options to their members. NMS can step in as a trusted partner and be an extension of these credit unions, providing a full-service mortgage solution. During these unprecedented times, it is very beneficial to have an experienced partner to assist while experiencing staffing difficulties or disaster recovery.
“Our above and beyond, dedicated service approach is what sets us apart from other CUSOs,” said Jamie York, NMS CEO. “This retail lending division greatly benefits credit unions that don’t have the expertise of a dedicated loan officer or the overall resources to support a mortgage department. It can take a considerable amount of time and investment for a credit union to enter into the mortgage lending space, keep up with regulations and be successful. This new offering will help credit unions become stable and successful in the mortgage space.
Brian James, NMS Sales & Member Development Officer, is spearheading this new division and adds, “We’re grateful for the opportunity to support the credit union movement and create new solutions that help make the homeownership dreams of credit union members a reality. We invite any credit union in need of a dedicated loan originator and full-service support to reach out to us. We were founded by credit unions, for credit unions and are happy to help. We strive to exemplify the philosophy of ‘people helping people’ and it’s what we do each day.”
Neighborhood Mortgage Solutions is a Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO) providing mortgage services to fellow credit unions. We are credit union-owned and founded by three credit union partners in Michigan: Frankenmuth Credit Union, Alpena Alcona Area Credit Union and Team One Credit Union.
