Homeward Residential, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ocwen Financial, recently approved U.S. Real Estate Services, a nationwide appraisal management company, as an approved AMC.

USRES has 24 years of experience in the default industry, and offers origination valuations, broker price opinions and appraisal services. The company doubled its client base for origination services in the past year.

“The considerable growth we have experienced in the last year is a testament to our focus on providing exemplary service, combined with leading technology,” said Keith Guenther, USRES and subsidiary RES.NET CEO.

“We look forward to now counting Homeward Residential among our family of clients, and anticipate a strong future ahead for USRES as an AMC with the capacity to service origination segments,” Guenther said.

USRES has its own in-house staff of licensed appraisers who audit every order for consistency and accuracy. In fact, a nationwide network of licensed appraisers support the origination and default appraisal services.

The company’s expertise of its professionals, used in concert with USRES’ proprietary software, RES.NET, enables its clients to continually adapt to both internal business needs and regulatory changes.

“We have decided to add USRES as a partner for AMC services,” said Erik Ferguson, Homeward Residential senior vice president of operations.

“Our review of the company’s record satisfied us that this vendor will be able to meet and exceed performance standards, thus benefiting our customers,” Ferguson said. “We also highly value the access we have to its staff and management team.”
