Lenders and servicers looking to collaborate with a creative, flexible partner will find the perfect match in Chronos Solutions. The national real estate finance services provider combines customized transactional and business process management services with a serious commitment to making its clients happy.
“Chronos Solutions goes the extra mile, managing tasks or specialties which aren’t core services for most lenders and servicers, while maximizing the return,” said CEO Matt Martin. “Our wide range of services, creative array of product offerings and flexibility are all necessary in a market which changes almost daily.”
Chronos Solutions’ offerings include credit and advisory, title and settlement services, valuation, HOA solutions, accelerated asset liquidation and marketing, REO management and disposition, field services, asset acquisition and investor services and innovative technology applications and systems. All of these services are employed seamlessly, reducing lender or servicer expenses and adding value to their businesses.
“Chronos is the new model for national service providers, with the capacity and resources of a national firm but the speed, flexibility, creativity and expertise of a smaller business,” said Steve DiUbaldo, chief real estate officer.
The fact that Chronos, formerly known as Matt Martin Real Estate Management, is neither a servicer nor a lender means that it doesn’t compete with its clients on any level and can offer uniquely adaptable solutions.
“Our clients appreciate our creativity in problem solving. We are able to customize our many resources — technology, data, personnel, partner networks — to meet each customer’s specific needs,” DiUbaldo said.
By offering such a wide range of services, Chronos creates massive value for its clients, according to Martin. “Our role, in many respects, is to reduce client costs and improve their bottom line. In many cases we’re also able to combine services and take advantage of numerous synergies to deliver a maximum return at minimum expense.”
Although some in the industry are predicting a sluggish 2016 due to increased regulation and rising interest rates, Chronos has positioned itself to expand its operations. In December 2015, Chronos announced the acquisition of Cogent Road, a technology firm focused on mortgage origination, credit data and analytics, and verifications. The company brings over 300 clients to the Chronos family and greatly expands the company’s originations suite.
“We are planning aggressive growth throughout the servicing and originations segments,” Martin said. “Because we offer such a wide array of services with a flexibility no one else in the industry can truly match, we believe Chronos Solutions is an excellent partner for clients of all sizes who require service providers who adapt quickly to change and provide insightful counsel on ways to seize upon potential competitive advantages.”
