WHY PARTNER WITH US
Our nimble nature allows you to operate at your competitive best giving you the flexibility to choose the options that are best suited for your needs.
CMG Financial began as a modest company focused solely on the consumer aspect of business in 1993. The company learned to anticipate and cope with the fluctuations in the market and continued to grow and succeed through the years. Today, we conduct business through three distinct origination channels including Retail Lending, Wholesale Lending, and Correspondent Lending. Originally composed of a single branch in Pleasanton, California, the company is now licensed to lend in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and maintains a nationwide, reputable presence. We have gained incredible knowledge from our journey in the mortgage industry and want to share that knowledge with our valuable partners.
Correspondent investors bring a fairly uniform collection of products, pricing, and execution options to the marketplace. A company's culture is a major differentiating factor. Our team proudly demonstrates a passion and commitment to exceeding a client's expectations. From the operations staff and client support, to sales executives and senior level management, our company character distinguishes us in the mortgage industry. We hold ourselves responsible for ensuring a positive experience with a reliable and knowledgeable team.
With a full range of execution options, our secondary department manages a competitive pricing structure. Maintaining an agile operations platform designed to purchase loans quickly and efficiently from our partners' lines allows our team to capitalize on industry-prevalent narrow margins.
