""The best way for us to help consumers and real estate professionals is by increasing our capacity to handle home loans, and this new office does just that,"" said John Lee, BluFi Lending's president and CEO. ""We manage everything in house, from processing and underwriting to funding, so we can provide the best rates and fastest closing times in our office areas.
""Mario and the team at Walnut Creek have done a great job expanding into the Bay area, and we can now deliver excellent BluFi service to more customers. Additionally, we plan to start servicing loans in 2013,"" added Lee.
BluFi noted that Vargas is rapidly building a team of loan purchase producers to facilitate 24-hour underwriting and fast funding turnaround. Commenting on the company's growth, BluFi cited low mortgage rates as the catalyst behind the steadily increasing demand for loans.
