""Envoy Mortgage"":http://envoymortgage.com/ is expanding its business with the launch of its new National Builder Division platform.[IMAGE]
The independent, full-service mortgage banking firm wants to get in on the resurgence in the homebuilder market segment by offering targeted products and services to meet their specific needs. To that end, Envoy seeks to capitalize on the company's core strengths to develop relationships with homebuilders and developers across the country.
""Everyone knows the economy has been struggling, and that pain was especially felt in the new home construction segment,"" said Suzanne Schakett, SVP of Envoy's new division. ""Those struggles did not necessarily have to do with homebuilders mishandling their business in any way, but rather with cash flow constraints from the banks and their inability to acquire interim construction financing, among other factors.
""Today, however, there is a renewed energy being felt in the industry, and homebuilders are excited for the first time in several years,"" Schakett added.
The National Builder Division will partner with large and small homebuilders, using construction market research and expertise to focus on helping clients expand their footprint in new construction communities. Through the new division, Envoy hopes to provide the best and most competitive loan products and to serve as an extension of their clients' sales teams through on-site coverage, co-branding, and customized solutions to help generate traffic.
Schakett said the company wants to avoid offering ""vanilla mortgage products"" and instead wants to help builders get everything they need to sell homes.
""With this new platform, Envoy Mortgage is able to effectively leverage all of our tools and resources to help homebuilders and developers ell homes and deliver a best-in-class home buying experience,"" Schakett said. ""It is important that we offer a variety of products to aid builders and their buyers in making their dream of owning a new home a possibility.""
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Envoy Mortgage operates a network of retail branches, offering origination in 47 states.
