New Orleans-based Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Company provides individualized service and custom lending programs to assist borrowers with their home-buying needs. Both institutions implemented MRG’s MIRACLE Online document preparation system to ensure compliant documents for each loan, automated updates to documents according to changing laws, as well as access to a team of mortgage compliance attorneys as needed. “Over our 30-year history, MRG has excelled at developing strong customer relationships built on guaranteed compliance and hands-on service,” said Mike O’Leary, senior mortgage consultant at MRG. “In that time we have seen highs and lows in the mortgage industry and have enabled our customers to remain successful through challenges. The combination of MRG’s document preparation technology and availability of a team of mortgage compliance attorneys has proven valuable to Ascent Home Loans and Gulf Coast Bank & Trust through the most recent regulatory shifts. We are pleased to have long-standing customers such as these and look forward to working with them for many more years.” Miracle Online is a browser-based mortgage document preparation and delivery system that provides lenders with documents and disclosures vetted by an in-house team of compliance attorneys and experts.
