Stewart Lender Services (SLS) restructured its operation to expand its service offerings and grow its business, the company announced at this week’s Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) annual conference and convention. Business centers in Dallas, San Diego, Irvine, Calif. and Phoenix are now open to complement the previous operations in Houston and Tampa, SLS said. Additionally, a loss mitigation call center in San Diego supplements the Houston call center and existing asset management operations in Tampa have been bolstered by a new Irvine-based operation. The expanded offices will aid in the company’s goal of supporting national lenders, investors, and servicers throughout the lifecycle of a loan, SLS said. “Stewart has made a significant commitment to our continued growth in serving the real estate finance market,” said SLS president and CEO Jason Nadeau. SLS is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Houston-based Stewart Title Company [[STC]. Write to Austin Kilgore.
