Diversifying with realtors brings firm to next level

“We give the realtor the tools and ability to help their client, and that helps the industry as a whole,” said Andrews. “We position the realtors that we work with as the main contact—they’re the heroes of the transaction, and we just help them work at a higher level. We’re happy to work on the sidelines and allow our realtors to elevate their presence with people they connect with, and we’re happy to take a backseat.”

Expert Financial holds weekly training seminars for realtors and real estate boards, and Andrews says they easily draw at least 30 realtors per session. More importantly, Expert Financial gets direct access to top producers.

The mortgage brokerage has built a large part of its business on diversification into the real estate industry, and tools like CRMs, agent marketing systems, contacts, unlimited websites, lead gen tools, and more, are provided for realtors willing to partner up.

“If I’m doing a Peak Producer course, in that first week I’d receive anywhere from 8 to 12 referrals from that group in there. The way we bring people in, and bring them value, is not a promise that ‘You send me a deal and I’ll send a referral.’ No, it’s a promise to help build up their production.

Mutual of Omaha to buy national mortgage lender

Mutual of Omaha Bank in Nebraska has agreed to buy Synergy One Lending, a national mortgage lender in San Diego.

The $8.1 billion-asset Mutual of Omaha said in a press release that the acquisition would expand its product offerings to include reverse mortgages. Synergy One will benefit from Mutual of Omaha’s “financial strength, strong brand and national presence,” Jeff Schmid, the bank's chairman and CEO, said in the release.

The deal is expected to be completed in June. Mutual of Omaha did not disclose the price.

Synergy One, licensed in 45 states, offers home financing products and services, including mortgages and reverse mortgages through a network of loan officers, mortgage brokers and direct sales channels. After the deal closes, Synergy One will operate as a unit of Mutual of Omaha while keeping its name and headquarters.

“We are a strong cultural fit — with both of us committed to collaboration, accountability and customer-focus — and our businesses are extremely complementary,” Schmid said. “We are excited by the potential this acquisition offers both companies to expand and serve more customers in the mortgage and reverse mortgage markets.”
