Planet Home Lending, LLC , a national mortgage lender and servicer, opened a regional office in Irving, Texas.
As the company's first Regional Operating Center (ROC), the 25,000-square-foot facility accommodates about 130 employees, and offers space to expand to house more employees.
The ROC has five conference and training rooms, in addition to access to a large-scale meeting and conference center.
Employees and departments previously based in Dallas have moved to the new office. This includes legal and enterprise risk management, credit policy, origination support service, national operations, human resources, IT, project management and servicing.
"As Planet Home Lending grows, we can tap into Dallas' significant mortgage industry talent pool. It's also a central meeting location for our executives and leadership, who are based in multiple states," said Suzy Lindblom, Executive Vice President, National Operations. "The ROC gives us additional leverage in assisting our clients in Planet Home Lending's national footprint.
"Dallas is an enhancement to our already remarkable sites, like Meriden, Connecticut; Tampa, Florida; Columbia, Maryland; and Rochester and Melville, New York. The Dallas site supports our talented local mortgage processors as well as sales professionals in our regional offices and our national retention retail hubs."
Since 2017, Planet Home Lending has grown its employee base by 22% to support growth in the company's retail footprint and the expansion of its correspondent and sub-servicing businesses.
