Yes, it’s true. We are now proud to be a Quicken Loans partner and have been growing this relationship over the past year! However, I’ve been asked more than once if I have sold Keys Financial to or merged with Quicken – and the answer to that is absolutely not! Quicken is simply another great asset in our stable of lenders.
Quicken Loans is now the second largest mortgage lender in the nation (Wells Fargo is the largest). We are enjoying very competitive rates, excellent service, fast closings, and superior technology from our relationship with Quicken. Our customers are obviously benefiting greatly from this relationship!
At Keys Financial, we have made a shift in our business over the last few years to move towards using lenders that ONLY do mortgage lending. (We have moved away from relationships with the “Big Box Banks” as they were proving to be slower and too restrictive). We now avoid lenders where mortgage lending is a separate department of a larger institution. Our present lenders are technologically forward companies with a strong customer service culture and 100% commitment to the mortgage business!
If you have a client who is considering using Quicken Loans for their financing, have them give us a call. We’ll be able to provide local representation, a face-to-face meeting, and terrific pricing! We believe our local knowledge and relationships, coupled with Quicken’s resources, are a combination that’s hard to beat!
