June 12, 2019 – The mortgage market continues to surprise, mostly in a good way considering the 'doom and gloom' predicted just a few short months ago. Unpredictability... we can ALWAYS count on it. On to something more predictable – forging more vendor partnerships.
As Vendor Surf celebrates our 18-month anniversary tomorrow, we are inspired to report that May was our best month ever for adding new vendor partners. Plus, weekly traffic to our search engine is also up over 49% from just 6-months ago. We work incredibly hard to deliver an industry resource that has something for everyone, vendors and searchers. Thank you for continually coming back to visit us.
Here is a summary of our most recent vendor partner additions (alphabetical order), a little bit of everything spanning the life cycle from loan application through loan servicing.
