Just a few days before their grand opening in Illinois, today Mortgage Master, a national mortgage lender and division of loanDepot, announced the expansion of the Bay Area branch offices.

Since October 2013, Mortgage Master has opened locations in San Francisco, Burlingame, Walnut Creek and Larkspur. More offices are expected to open in the area this year.

In the San Francisco metro area, home prices are up 10%, and Mortgage Master expects prices will continue to rise.

“We look forward to the continued growth that will empower us to meet the demand for our products,” said Shane Stanton, Mortgage Master national director of business development. “We are pleased with the traction we have obtained and are committed to expanding our presence even more.”

The company is currently looking to expand their team within the Bay Area.

New lending professionals will be trained using CORE Training, a mortgage and real estate coaching company that provides mentoring and coaching from all over the country. 

“This is a milestone moment for us as we grow and expand throughout the San Francisco Bay region,” area manager Kenny Wong said. “Catering to residents from the high-tech, bio-tech and startup companies in the Bay Area, requires seasoned loan officers and branch managers, which we are currently recruiting.”
