Real Estate Mortgage Network, Inc. (REMN), is strengthening its West Coast presence with the addition of Tim Owens in the role of regional vice president. Reporting directly to Tim Bartosh, executive vice president, Owens will be charged with leading REMN’s retail expansion throughout Arizona, as well as across the greater West Coast region. Based in Phoenix, Owens will help to extend REMN’s reputation for quality and customer service with home buyers, home owners and real estate professionals, by helping to recruit new regional offices and associates throughout the West Coast. Within the first few months of joining REMN, Owens has already established three offices in Arizona, with additional offices in development throughout Southern California.
In just over two decades, REMN has grown to become one the most respected and thriving privately held non-bank lenders in the U.S. Headquartered in northern New Jersey, the last few years have seen REMN expand along the East Coast and into parts of the Midwest, in addition to cementing a very strong presence in Colorado. In 2011, REMN entered into Texas with a new fulfillment center, followed by multiple retail locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. While REMN already has a strong retail and wholesale presence in Southern California, it is relatively unknown north of Los Angeles County.
“REMN is a true national lender, but many in the western part of the country are unfamiliar with our excellent reputation for quality and customer service. My goal in the next few years is to help REMN expand its presence on the West Coast in such a way that its name recognition and reputation for excellence here rivals that of our colleagues on the East Coast,” commented Owens.
Owens joins REMN with more than 20 years of experience in the lending industry, having held multiple vice presidential and managerial roles with well-known mortgage lenders. Originally from Illinois, he currently makes his home in Scottsdale, AZ, and in his free time enjoys watching college football, flying planes, golf, boating and snow skiing.
