Home Mortgage Has Never Been Easier

urchasing a home is a goal for many people, but the process isn’t always an enjoyable one. Let’s face it, finding your dream home and securing a mortgage isn’t always a walk in the park.  Often, homebuyers jump right into the mortgage process and simply look for the “best deal.” However, reputable lenders suggest that homebuyers do their homework before moving forward.

With many mortgage lenders to choose from, Gateway Mortgage Group is a trusted favorite among current residents and newcomers in Northwest Arkansas. Gateway is a retail residential mortgage company with branches located in Rogers, Fayetteville, Bentonville, and Fort Smith, since 2013. In addition to providing home financing, they offer Conventional, FHA and VA loans, USDA RD loans, and Arkansas bond loans.

As a result of the 2008 financial crash, the mortgage market has moved from an industry dominated by depository lenders to one that is dominated by independent mortgage companies. Laney Briggs, Regional Vice President for the South-central U.S. Gateway branches in Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Tennessee states,

“Gateway Mortgage Group is a top 25 nationally, independent mortgage company with over $3.5 billion in annual retail mortgage originations and over $18 billion in our servicing portfolio,” adding, “one of the things that sets us apart from most of our competition is servicing over 98% of the loans we originate.”

Servicing the loans they close, instead of selling to another mortgage servicer, like most of the competition, reveals Gateway’s local management and customer commitment. Furthermore, Laney notes, “All of our lenders are nationally licensed and are required to take annual continuing education to stay on top of important things for our industry.”

Gateway Mortgage Group does not only give back to the customer, but also to community organizations and charities, nationally and locally.

“Our company’s main charity is the Folds of Honor Foundation that provides scholarships for family members of the fallen veterans,” says Laney. “We donate a portion of every loan we close to this cause and raised over $200,000 towards the cause in less than two years.”
