Movement Mortgage

Movement is changing the financial services industry through innovation and a new philosophy for serving loan officers, home buyers and the communities where they live. 

As the sixth-largest retail mortgage lender in the U.S., Movement’s size and scale offers an ideal environment to transform its industry, while still offering the speed, flexibility and DNA of a startup. Movement is privately held and investing capital in strategic transformation for the long-term. Our team is building digital ecosystems used by thousands of loan originators, realtors and borrowers designed to increase customer acquisition, improve productivity and accelerate the delivery of products across every channel. Movement funds more than $30 billion in mortgages each year, helping improve homeownership rates and close the wealth gap for hundreds of thousands of families. Beyond that, we’ve invested $260 million of our profit in the nonprofit Movement Foundation to build schools and community centers in developing communities.

Reducing friction and helping simplify the mortgage process is only one part of the puzzle for our customers. As Movement grows, we are taking a consumer-first approach and seeking to remove friction and add transparency to all aspects of the home buying process. Getting a mortgage is but one step along a journey of additionally required services—each with its own supplemental experience.
