Mortgage services provider LenderLive, announced it hired two mortgage industry veterans – Lynn Collins and Tisha Hamari – as its regional account executives for the company’s Correspondent Lending division.  

Collins joins the company with more than 20 years of experience. In her new role she will cover states Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas. 

With more than 23 years of experience, Hamari covers Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada and Southern California.

Both will work with current and prospective clients, including community banks and credit unions participating in or considering the company’s correspondent program.

“There is growing demand for a better alternative when it comes to correspondent lending,” said David Vida, president of LenderLive Mortgage Services.

“Clients are looking for new partners who can provide a consistent, superior customer experience and, at the same time, protect their relationships. Both Lynn and Tisha’s successful track records of working closely with correspondents to expand their mortgage businesses make them valuable additions to the team,” added Vida.

Prior to joining the company, Collins was an account manager for Stonegate Mortgage, where she assisted in the development of its correspondent and emerging banking business channels. Before that, Collins was an account executive with U.S. Bank Home Mortgage where she was responsible for correspondent and wholesale business development in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas.

Hamari recently served as correspondent sales director for Titan Capital Solutions. Previously, she was a correspondent account executive with BofI Federal Bank. She also held account executive positions with national lenders, such as Thornburg Mortgage and Fifth Third Bank.

LenderLive’s correspondent program is designed to serve the needs of mid-tier and smaller originators that want to protect their customer relationships. Unlike many large bank programs, LenderLive offers an option to co-brand its servicing with its correspondents. The program also offers quick client approval, fast turn times, competitive pricing and greater engagement during the sales process to keep clients aware of the status of their loans.
