Senior Mortgage Banker - Austin, TX
About Oak Mortgage:
Oak Mortgage is a boutique-sized residential mortgage company based in Dallas with offices in Austin and Waco. We began in 2005 as a response to the decline in responsible lending and wanted to create a new banking model that was consumer and employee-focused.
We don't want the "M" word to scare people and are on a mission to flip the culture surrounding finance institutions and mortgage lending on its head. Our vision is to greatly improve the customer experience, build trust and have a people-centered philosophy where the customer's needs, their families and their goals are ultimately the central focus. To get a feel for our brand, check out our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/OakMortgage
In addition, Oak has a one-of-a-kind program to help people in Africa and Central America escape poverty. Through an international partner, we distribute microloans to help people start their own business and provide for their families. Not only does a portion of every loan fund this, but we take trips each year with employees, customers and realtors who have helped in the process. Our initiative is called Oak for the Oppressed (OFTO) and you can learn more about it here: http://ofto.oakmortgagegroup.com.
Finally, Oak Mortgage has a dynamic company culture where employees are engaged, motivated and have a common passion to help people. This focused culture is the centerpiece to our strategy of changing the way people are treated in the mortgage industry. Our internal culture is something we pride ourselves in as we believe investing in people is the key to a successful business.
Regardless of your position, your principal function is to help this Company find, serve and keep profitable customers by driving Oak’s purpose statement to surprise our customers by instilling trust, peace of mind, and attention to the details that matter to them through a boutique-quality experience.
