Employment

HomeFirst Mortgage Corp. is an independently owned and operated mortgage brokerage headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia. The President and CEO is an active loan originator with over 25 years of experience. As a result, our system of compensation and procedures reflects a heavy bias toward our origination staff.


HomeFirst Mortgage is currently is licensed and/or qualified to conduct business in California, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina and Virginia.


HomeFirst is approved as an originator by over 40 major wholesale lenders, including: NYCB, Stearns, Parkside, Frankin American, Quicken Loans, Stonegate Mortgage, Century Lending, United Wholesale, plus many more.


We are approved to originate Conventional, FHA, FHA 203k, VA, USDA, Construction and Reverse Mortgages.  HomeFirst also holds a Warehouse Line of Credit.  Our Lending Division can currently close loans in D.C., North Carolina and Virginia with various Correspondent Lenders.


HomeFirst Mortgage's LOS platform is Ellie Mae's Encompass 360. All new loan officers will receive basic training on Encompass. In addition, we will provide all of the other software programs necessary to fully process your loans from your own computer.
 

Our internal website (a.k.a. Intranet) is a very helpful tool in fostering greater communication among colleagues and serving as a clearing house for ideas regarding programs and origination procedures as well as marketing methods and sales techniques. This website allows our loan officers to download and print lock-in sheets, fee sheets, contact numbers, hyperlink to lender websites and just about anything else you might need to gather information and lock-in your loans in a timely fashion.


While HomeFirst licensed branches operate autonomously, each loan officer (branch office) will have the benefit of the headquarters staff's years of experience. We will work with you to get required branch licenses (you will be expected to pay the licensing fee if you elect to work out of your home), we will intercede on your behalf, when necessary, with our lender contacts and we will provide a stable environment full of experienced and successful originators.


As seasoned originators, it is expected that you will require a minimum amount of training in origination techniques and product knowledge. As a result, HomeFirst Mortgage provides a very attractive commission split geared toward the entrepreneurial in spirit. To encourage recruitment of equally qualified originators, we offer an override on commissions earned and paid to anyone recruited to the Company through your own efforts.  Furthermore, we have three aggressive commission tiers implemented to structure pricing and locking with our lenders.


As noted, we are looking for experienced loan officers and processors who look to become loan officers. If you have been searching for an opportunity where you can work as though you were self-employed without the headaches of management, HomeFirst Mortgage could be the right fit for you. Keep in mind, we do not set prices or rates. We pass along to you all special incentives we receive from our lenders. We have some of the highest commission splits in the industry.  What that means to you is a simplified, profitable process of determining how you price and where you place a loan. We have no overages and, most important of all, no underages.

 

Finally, we are interested only in people committed to conducting business in a manner consistent with the principles established at the founding of the Company. Our policy is very simple, we will not tolerate questionable business methods and will terminate immediately anyone found to have committed fraud in any loan file under their responsibility. Furthermore, it is our stated policy, upon findings of fraud, to refer said evidence to the proper authorities for further action. We are known for our high quality standards. We hope that may be attractive to you, too.

If you are interested in becoming a Loan Officer with HomeFirst Mortgage Corp., please e-mail Erin Donnelly, Chief Operating Officer, at erin@homefirstmortgage.com or call (703) 549-3400.
