“Our goal is to have a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem that supports startup companies like LenderClose at all levels of growth,” said Gov. Reynolds who went on to offer praise to the fintech startup and its leadership.
 
LenderClose is a Web-based platform that digitizes the underwriting process and speeds up the lending cycle. The digital hub gives Loan Officers instant access to the latest real estate lending technology, products and solutions so they can become dominant lenders in their local markets.
 
“We appreciate you having your headquarters here in Des Moines,” said Gov. Reynolds said to LenderClose Founder and CEO Omar Jordan and COO Ben Rempe. “As a fintech startup, you’re building a stronger reputation. We love the disruptive lending platform that continues to empower lending institutions to compete on a national level by streamlining the process and increasing their footprint. I love it when we can streamline and innovate. Anything disruptive, I love.”
 
Kara Miner, who will serve as an Operations Specialist for LenderCloseThe event celebrated the recent investment LenderClose secured from Next Level Ventures, a venture capital firm that invests in growing companies based in Iowa. The funding will allow LenderClose to add 25 employees to the fast-growing company. The first of the incoming is Kara Miner (pictured right), who will serve as an Operations Specialist for LenderClose.
 
Miner brings more than 15 years of experience in mortgage, real estate tax sale and customer service to LenderClose. She joins LenderClose from Premier Lending Alliance, an Iowa Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO) that provides mortgage products and services to consumers and financial institutions. Prior to serving as a Loan Processor for Premier Lending Alliance, Miner was a Loan Originator for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage in West Des Moines.
 
As Operations Specialist, Miner will assist LenderClose’s credit union and community bank clients with reporting, customer service and vendor follow ups. Miner’s core objective will be to maintain the connections Loan Officers need to close loans as quickly and efficiently as possible.
