Mortgage Loan Underwriter
Posted ago
Our team is expanding and we’re looking for a Mortgage Underwriter expert to help make quality decisions for our clients on VA, FHA, and conventional loans.

You’ll identify, examine, and balance transactional, borrower, and property-related risks and offsets, to determine a loan approval, suspense, counteroffer, or denial. You’ll also be responsible for inspecting credit reports, income documentation, asset documentation, liabilities, property appraisals, and title reports to make sure that loans meet company standards, government regulations, and standards for sale to the secondary market.

In this role, you’ll also be considered the resident specialist for the company, partners, and management, on all matters related to underwriting and will provide advice and support to these parties in their functional areas.

Job seekers should have exceptional knowledge of the loan process and various types of mortgage documents and investor requirements. You should also have excellent time management skills, and be able to efficiently produce accurate, high-quality work.
