Indianapolis-based real estate appraisal management services provider StreetLinks Lender Solutions has announced that it will expand its operations with a new office location in Tampa, Fla. StreetLinks, a provider of warranted residential valuation services and technologies to mortgage lenders nationwide, will invest nearly $2 million to open a 36,000-sq. ft. location in early September. “StreetLinks continues to experience steady growth," said StreetLinks Lender Solutions Chief Executive Officer Steve Haslam. "The Tampa location will help us fulfill the resource demands that growth creates. It will also serve as an important secondary disaster recovery facility to help ensure business continuity for our clients." Haslam said that the company plans to add 250 jobs at the Tampa location during the next two years. StreetLinks currently employs more than 400 between its Indianapolis, Milwaukee and Kansas City locations, and was recently named a 2011 Top Workplace in a special edition of the Indianapolis Star. The company growth builds upon the addition of Luke Pille as national sales manager earlier this year. “We felt that the business environment and employment market in Tampa were a great fit with our StreetLinks culture. We are excited to be a part of the Tampa community,” said Paul Bradley, StreetLinks vice president of operations. The State of Florida, Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa have offered StreetLinks training grants and recruitment assistance based on the company’s job creation plans. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Fla. Unemployment Rate for the Metropolitan Statistical Area is at 10.5 percent, while the national average stands at  8.7 percent. "StreetLinks’ expansion is a significant economic development opportunity for Tampa, and I applaud the business and government partners who made it happen,” said Gray Swoope, president and chief executive officer of Enterprise Florida, the state’s principal economic development organization. “This is welcome news at a time when job creation is of critical importance to Florida’s economy."
