WFG Lender Services has announced the acquisition of Valutrust Solutions LLC. WFGLS is a national, full service provider of title insurance and real estate settlement services for lender real estate transactions. The acquisition of Valutrust expands WFGLS’ product offerings in two ways. First, it extends the company’s menu of services to include appraisal management in all 50 states. Secondly, the Valutrust technology platform gives lenders the capability to manage all mortgage related services. The proprietary technology integrates with clients’ loan origination systems, allowing lenders to manage third party lending activity such as appraisal management, collateral review, flood certifications, 4506 tax returns, title and closing services.
“We are delighted to have Valutrust affiliated with WFG,” said Patrick Stone, president and CEO of WFGLS parent company Williston Financial Group. “This transaction will provide our loan originators the most elegant and efficient platform for ordering and tracking appraisals, title and other components of the mortgage transaction. Our lending client will now be able to order and track all phases of the entire loan process using what we believe to be the nation’s most comprehensive platform for appraisal and title transaction management.”
Lance Melber, co-founder and CEO of Valutrust, sees a natural fit between WFGLS and Valutrust, “Both companies have long operated with the same core philosophy: Without the client, we simply do not exist. Everything we do is for the customer. The Valutrust Portal drives efficiencies for our clients, saving them time and money. In combining our resources with WFGLS, we look forward to building an even stronger experience for our clients.”
