RightStart Mortgage adding 25 retail branches

Estimates to grow originations volume by 200%

California

Based in Pasadena, Calif., RightStart Mortgage is expanding its retail branch operations to keep up with a growing demand for mortgage loans in 2014.

As a result, the company will add 25 retail branches, increase its market area from 10 to 15 states, mostly in the western U.S. and plans to grow its retail origination volume by 200% over the coming year.

The company will add three branches in Southern California in the next several weeks, followed by a branch in Hawaii in the spring.

“Buying a home should be a fun and fulfilling experience, but as many Americans know, it can be challenging and nerve-wracking as well,” said John Stangarone retail business development manager. “By providing services from within the communities where our customers live, we hope to make the process as rewarding and streamlined as it should be.”

In addition to the expansion, RightStart Mortgage appointed Jonathan Okken as business development manager, bringing 17 years of mortgage and financial experience.
