Countrywide opens up in Jericho, N.Y.MortgagePress.comCountrywide
On Nov. 21, Countrywide executives, employees and local mortgage
brokers celebrated the grand opening of its non-prime fulfillment
center in Jericho, N.Y. The grand opening featured a ribbon cutting
ceremony, an open house and a luncheon that allowed mortgage
brokers and wholesale originators to meet the Countrywide staff.
The open house was for those interested in learning about the
fulfillment center and its ability to match flexible loan programs
to borrowers, providing services to brokers and assisting mortgage
originators to best meet the needs of their customers. Among the
initiatives currently underway to enhance Countrywide's
relationships with brokers is its expansion of the number of
specialists available to assist originators, as well as new online
tools built specifically for the specialty lending group--the
company's business unit dedicated to non-prime wholesale lending.
The non-prime market goes beyond customers who have experienced
temporary setbacks and can include customers who are self-employed
or business owners. The new Jericho facility, located on the third
floor at 2 Jericho Plaza, is expected to hold a staff of 188 once
it's up to full capacity.
