The Mortgage Collaborative, an independent cooperative network, experienced record growth in 2019, finishing the year with its highest level of lender engagement and new members to date.
This year marks the third-straight year that they’ve added more than 40 new members, with a significant amount of the growth coming from lenders, along with 15 new preferred partners and four new full-time staff members. The boost in engagement also fueled record-breaking attendance for their bi-annual membership conferences, increasing 26% from the 2018 events.
“We’re only interested in adding lender members that are interested in being part of something bigger than just themselves, and the nature of our growth this year leaves us with a highly engaged membership base that really embraces the ‘pay it forward’ nature of our network,” said TMC’s Chief Operating Officer Rich Swerbinsky.
Looking ahead to next year, TMC is close to launching a new educational initiative called “TMC Connect” to spur connections with their members and deliver high-quality information. With their winter gathering in New Orleans coming up in February, TMC reinforced its commitment to creating new opportunities and solutions for their members.
