Oakleaf’s offerings have expanded to include servicing and origination compliance, loan review, litigation support, financial modeling, and data analytics.

“This milestone could not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of our employees and their commitment to the success of our clients. I would like to thank each and every one of our team members, past and present,” said Milner.

“Oakleaf’s success is because of you. And thank you to our clients and partners. Your continued support of our service offerings and people has helped Oakleaf to thrive these past 15 years. We look forward to the next 15 years and beyond!”
