Lender and servicer Newrez teamed up with Keller Williams Georgia Legacy Group to launch a joint venture mortgage company, according to a press release.
The company, Onward Home Mortgage, will open for borrowers in the Southeast, giving them access to both Keller Williams’ real estate agents and Newrez’s resources.
Onward will be headquartered in Roswell, Georgia, and specialize in residential purchases.
“This is a marriage of outstanding organizations that will now grow even stronger. I am humbled and honored to lead such a talented group of professionals and can’t wait to continue getting more borrowers into the homes of their dreams,” said Kathy Vitali, president of Onward Home Mortgage.
The Onward team brings a combined 125 years of experience to the Southeastern mortgage market.
Vitali leads the company through the lens of her more than 30 years of experience in greater Georgia and Alabama. Prior to Onward, she served as a senior loan consultant for Shelter Home Mortgage and Bank of America. She also headed HomeBanc Mortgage as its VP for a decade.
“Onward Home Mortgage’s unwavering commitment to continued growth and exceeding customer expectations aligns seamlessly with the Newrez way,” said Randy Vanden Houten, senior vice president of joint venture and retail lending at Newrez. “We look forward to working with such a strong and experienced partner.”
Pennsylvania-based Newrez is a leading mortgage origination and servicing company offering a customer-centric experience.
