Mar 16, 2015

Comergence has announced a partnership with Open Mortgage to provide its originator screening and due diligence services to Open Mortgage. Comergence offers a full suite of hands-on and automated services for mortgage originator and appraiser due diligence and profile surveillance.

Open Mortgage recently began using Comergence’s REALM for Third Party Originators. REALM is a proprietary platform with a comprehensive database of over 400,000 records on every licensed mortgage originator in the country. REALM aggregates critical data such as:  licensing, criminal and civil records, financial sanctions, as well as bankruptcies and foreclosures. Because the REALM platform is updated continuously, clients are able to keep current on the status of their third party originators, helping to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations.

"With REALM for Third Party Originators, Open Mortgage is simplifying its originator approval process and making it more efficient,” said Greg Schroeder, president of Comergence. “By using our due diligence and monitoring services, Open Mortgage is also showing its commitment to quality control and regulatory compliance. We’re delighted to add them to our growing client base.”

“REALM for Third Party Originators has streamlined our mortgage originator approval process, saving us time and money,” said Greg Block, senior vice president of Open Mortgage. “We’re also able to monitor the activities of our brokers and correspondents with the ongoing alerts provided by Comergence, which helps ensure we’re not missing anything in terms of due diligence.”
