Oak Mortgage was formed in 2005 in response to a decline in responsible lending programs. Recently it was named one of the Inc. 500 fastest-growing companies in America. Following its mission to put people before profit, the company guides customers to choose the lending option that best suits their needs—and with integrity, innovative solutions, and impeccable customer service, it’s earning its reputation as a hometown lender that’s always there.
But Oak Mortgage is dedicated to more than just helping people buy homes. In fact, helping seems to be integrated into almost everything the company does, from helping the world at large to helping employees continuously learn and grow.
Oak Mortgage has formed a one-of-a-kind aid program: Oak for the Oppressed. Together with international partners, the company donates a portion of every approved loan to the initiative, and it takes annual trips to distribute microloans that help people all over the world to start their own businesses and provide for their families.
“Oak really takes the mortgage industry from a different angle. What I’ve learned most here is how to help others,” shares Senior Loan Officer Brian McCauley.
Beyond growing through helping the company with its inspiring charity work, Oak Mortgage employees are given plenty of opportunities to develop themselves professionally. From the sales growth program to the Acorn Initiative—a program that helps loan officers and processors move forward in their respective fields by educating them on the latest updates to the laws and policies—Oak Mortgage is constantly coming up with new offerings for employee advancement.
