When Real Estate Mortgage Network Inc. launched its correspondent lending division, HomeBridge Funding, and a second wholesale division, HomeBridge Wholesale, in the fall of 2012, it started the company down the road to rebranding.
In announcing today that REMN has changed its name to HomeBridge Financial Services Inc., the company said the new name reflects its focus on making the home mortgage process easier for customers.
The company's original wholesale division, REMN Wholesale, will continue doing business under that name.
Founded in 1989, Iselin, N.J.-based HomeBridge says it's one of the nation's biggest privately held, nonbank mortgage lenders, with nearly 1,300 associates and more than 70 retail branches from coast to coast. HomeBridge is also an approved seller and servicer of Fannie Mae and Ginnie Mae loans, servicing approximately 40,000 loans. Source: prnewswire.com.
