Real Estate Mortgage Network Inc. (REMN) continues to strengthen its West Coast presence by expanding its team of associates across Southern California. The company recently opened a new Orange County retail location in Irvine, Calif., in addition to growing its San Diego footprint by expanding its Carlsbad branch. With an eye on additional growth across Southern California, REMN expects to further increase its presence in the area with plans for new branches in Orange County, Los Angeles and other key West Coast markets in 2014.
REMN is one of the largest, privately held non-bank lenders in the U.S. In 2012, REMN opened more than 40 offices across the country, expanding its total number of branches to more than 80. REMN’s growth, even during lean times in the housing industry, is due in major part to the company’s dedication to quality and customer service when working with home buyers, home owners and real estate industry professionals. Flexible and well-capitalized, REMN offers customers a full suite of mortgage solutions, including conventional, government, renovation lending and niche products, all backed by its industry leading commitment to customer service.
To accommodate their recent growth, REMN’s Carlsbad location will be shifting office space within their existing building to another suite. Led by Laurie Peterson, the office’s branch manager, REMN’s Carlsbad location has long been the home of some of the company’s top-producing mortgage loan originators.
REMN’s new Orange County branch is located in Irvine, Calif. Under the direction of Sales Managers Robert McCormick and John Soricelli Jr., both of whom are also experienced mortgage loan originators, this office is staffed by a team of expert associates well equipped to help Orange County residents and housing industry professionals with their mortgage needs.
In addition to these Carlsbad and Irvine offices, REMN has existing branches in Riverside, Pleasanton and Fresno, Calif., as well as wholesale and correspondent operations based in Irvine. Earlier this year, Tim Owens, a noted industry veteran, joined REMN in the role of regional vice president explicitly to help lead the company’s growth in Arizona and along the entire West Coast.
“REMN’s growth across Southern California is a testament to the company’s dedication to becoming a major presence on the West Coast," said Tim Bartosh, executive vice president for REMN. "In the next year, we’ll continue to open up new branches and bring on the best associates as we help housing industry professionals, home owners and future home buyers, with their mortgage needs."
