Guaranteed Rate Expanding Mortgage Operations in Texas
Guaranteed Rate, one of the ten largest retail mortgage companies in the nation, announced it is expanding its mortgage lending operations across Texas, along with the addition of a new head of regional sales and operations for Texas and Oklahoma.
Juli Rennie recently joined Guaranteed Rate as its new senior vice president and regional manager, overseeing mortgage lending in the two Southwestern states, especially in the company’s key home loan markets of Dallas, Houston and Austin. She’ll also be responsible for recruiting top area loan originators, as the company recently opened new Texas offices in Southlake and Frisco, and plans to open other new locations in the region during the next 12 months, including one coming soon in Austin.
“Juli is a tremendous addition to Guaranteed Rate and has already had a number of successes fueling our growth in Texas,” said Tom Gamache, Guaranteed Rate’s national director of retail production. “She has brought on board top originators in the Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth areas, which helps us bring our low-rate, low-fee mortgages to more home buyers in this rapidly growing state.”
Guaranteed Rate has grown from their inception in 2000 to become one of the ten largest retail mortgage lenders in the U.S., funding nearly $16 billion in loans in 2013 alone. The company has been able to expand successfully to other key markets through a business model that allows top originators to join the company and close more loans faster through Guaranteed Rate’s commitment to technology, pricing, process and support.
Prior to joining Guaranteed Rate, Rennie was vice president of national production at AmeriPro Funding. Previously, she also served as region area manager for Met Life Home Loans, and senior vice president and region executive for Bank of America Home Loans. She holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Ambassador University.
