Better Mortgage, a New York-headquartered digital lender, has expanded its services into Alaska, Kentucky, Oklahoma and West Virginia

Better Mortgage has announced that it has opened a new office in Irvine, Calif. The office will serve as home to 50 newly-hired underwriters, processors and closers.
“We chose this location strategically, after identifying the Orange County area’s rich talent pool of skilled underwriters and lending professionals,” said Vishal Garg, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Better Mortgage. “We are pleased to welcome a group of exceptional individuals, with the right balance of industry expertise and a forward-thinking, innovative approach to underwriting and processing, to our team.”
Better Mortgage currently services 19 states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington. The addition of the Irvine office will allow Better to provide support to customers in these states, and beyond, as the company continues to expand its services into states across the U.S.
“After recognizing that the mortgage process is often opaque and stressful for consumers, we set out to ‘derig’ the traditional process, feeling that too often it favors industry insiders over the consumer,” said Eric Wilson, Co-Founder and Head of Operations at Better Mortgage. “This objective drives all that we do, and it is one that could not be accomplished without a team of individuals who are in line with this thinking. The addition of the Irvine office will add 50 more of these forward-thinking individuals to our team, and their contributions will allow us to meet both short and long-term goals.”
Better has undergone significant growth since the launch of in January 2016. The company was recognized as one of Forbes’ Fintech 50 in February 2018, and one of Crain’s 2018 100 Best Places to Work in New York City, earlier this month.
