Eddie Brown was named managing executive vice president for Villa Home Loans, currently located in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Villa Home Loans team has funded over $2 billion in the last 12 months, and the company has plans for nationwide expansion.
Brown spent the last 24 years in the residential mortgage industry and has been involved in many aspects of the business. He has served as both CEO and vice president to a number of mortgage companies. Brown says that he is passionate about driving innovation, developing more efficient lending processes, and transforming the direct-to-consumer mortgage model.
With the introduction of fintech mortgage processes online and the old guard of customer service-focused professionals, there’s an opportunity for the right combination of both to take a foothold in the market, according to NP, Inc.'s announcement.
In addition to his various management roles, Brown created two different mastermind groups to help his team and his extended network grow their book of business. The first group he created was “Wednesday Warriors,” a weekly sales training mastermind. This group would dive into the sales mindset to disrupt the homebuying process and position themselves as a firm that can manage the entire real estate transaction. The second group was a 24/7 social media mastermind, where he partnered with a marketing expert to bring social media marketing training to his team. This group focused on strategies and tactics used in social media to drive consumer engagement.
“No business can rest on their past success as the market is always changing,” said Brown.
