AMC partner. This partnership enables AFR Brokers and correspondents to utilize SettlementOne’s highly qualified nationwide appraiser panels, as well as
SettlementOne’s leading technology. The relationship links SettlementOne’s appraiser partners by using the SettlementOne smart assign technology, which intelligently matches the valuation order with the most qualified appraiser partner, specific to the property and AFR loan type.
“Having the right appraiser is extremely important. In fact, it’s imperative to ensure that all the appraisers that are working on specialized loans are highly qualified to do so,” said Laura Brandao, President of AFR. “We feel that SettlementOne and their smart assignment technology and nationwide appraiser panel gives us the ability to offer best in class service to our brokers and correspondents.”
AFR Brokers and Correspondent Lenders can now utilize SettlementOne’s AMC services to fulfill their appraisal orders in a more timely and precise fashion. To better service the various loan types that AFR originates, SettlementOne individually qualifies their entire nationwide appraiser panel to identify those that are most capable of appraising these standard and unique loan types.
“We’re thrilled to partner with AFR to assist their brokers and correspondent lenders. We believe that AFR’s philosophy regarding affordable and specialty housing aligns perfectly with our own. AFR is a world-class organization, and we’re looking forward to many successful years of partnership,” said Tom Hurst, Chief Executive Officer at SettlementOne.
