OVM Financial has joined forces with AnnieMac Home Mortgage! This partnership will allow us to offer more loan options, in more states, while continuing to offer the high-touch personal service you’ve come to expect from OVM.
Where We’ve Been
OVM Financial’s mission has always been to become our client’s mortgage provider for life. The formula for fulfilling this mission is simple: we must offer industry-leading customer service and a strong lineup of loan options.
Throughout our history, OVM has made a handful of significant decisions to pursue this mission. Going back to 2001, when George Temple Jr. and Chip Simkins purchased Old Virginia Mortgage, they moved the corporate headquarters to Hampton Roads to be closer to the market they were serving. In 2011, after deciding to grow into other states, the company name was changed to OVM Financial, and new branches were created across North and South Carolina. And in 2019, OVM’s Legum Legacy was founded to help increase the positive impact we are making in the communities we serve.
Where We’re Headed
After exploring options for ways to provide more financing options for their clientele, the OVM Financial leadership team connected with AnnieMac Home Mortgage, as the relationship between the two mortgage lenders developed, the potential for greater alignment became apparent.
“As we spent more time with the AnnieMac Home Mortgage Executive team, we realized that we share the same vision for what a great mortgage company looks like. We’re aligned at the core of our corporate culture. We focus on providing the client and our real estate agent partners with a best-in-class experience,” said OVM Financial Executive Vice President Matt Beckwith.
95% of the way we operate today will continue. The OVM leadership structure will remain the same, our processing and underwriting will continue to happen locally, and our dedication to providing an extraordinary mortgage experience will continue to be our primary focus. This means we will continue to close loans faster than our competitors and with less headache for the customer!
Expanded Opportunities for Partners and Mortgage Loan Originators
Our partnership with AnnieMac Home Mortgage will offer a host of benefits to our Mortgage Loan Originators and real estate partners, including:
- The opportunity to serve home buyers in 48 states nationwide
- An expanded portfolio of loan products to home buyers
- Initiatives like Cash2Keys to help our buyers compete
- Access to AnnieMac Worx to empower our agents to take their business to the next level
- AnnieMac Worx is a comprehensive, on-demand training portal for real estate agents to pursue specialized designations and certifications through continued education.
