loanDepot.com LLC has officially opened its co-headquarters office in Plano, Texas. The expansion to Texas helps support the tremendous growth loanDepot has experienced since commencing operations in January 2010 as one of the few post-crisis born independent national mortgage lenders. loanDepot anticipates adding up to 1,000 employees in Plano over the next three years. "This is an exciting time for loanDepot," said CEO and founder Anthony Hsieh. "In less than four years, loanDepot has grown to become one of the largest independent retail mortgage lenders in the country. The addition of our Plano office ensures that we have access to the key talent needed to deliver the competitive rates and high standard of service our customers deserve." The Plano location will serve as co-headquarters to the company's Foothill Ranch, Calif. office. Plano is the fourth location for loanDepot, which currently has more than 1,200 full-time employees in Plano, Texas, Foothill Ranch, Calif., Scottsdale, Ariz., and Brentwood, Tenn. "I am extremely pleased to welcome loanDepot to the home of their new dual-headquarters in Plano. One of our main priorities is to continue to expand opportunities and promote Plano as one of the most desirable cities in the entire country in which to do business," said Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere. "We are proud that such a wonderful leader in the mortgage and finance business has chosen Plano for the addition of the first-class loanDepot facilities and the new professional jobs they will bring to Plano."
