LINTHICUM, MD, November 7, 2023 — NFM Lending, a leading mortgage company, is excited to announce a significant rebranding effort for one of its core divisions. The company’s Influencer Division will now be known as The Creator Collective, reflecting a strategic shift to more accurately represent the innovative work being done by this dynamic group of social media pioneers.

The name change from Influencer Division to The Creator Collective is more than just a semantic shift; it’s a reflection of the division’s evolution and the multifaceted nature of their contributions. In the digital age, these individuals do far more than merely “influence” others. They are content creators and educators who hold the key to financial empowerment. They particularly play a vital role in helping Gen Z homebuyers, who prefer to receive information through videos on apps like YouTube and TikTok, navigate the complexities of the mortgage process.

This rebranding acknowledges the dedication and creativity of each member of The Creator Collective. These individuals invest significant time and effort in crafting valuable, informative, and engaging content related to the mortgage industry. They are true creatives, with distinctive styles and unique niches that set them apart not only from each other but also from online creators in other sectors.

The Creator Collective is committed to producing content that empowers and educates potential homebuyers. They craft insightful narratives, offer expert advice, and use their creativity to demystify the home-buying process. As a result, they are increasing financial literacy, making it more accessible to a broader audience, especially Gen Z buyers, a burgeoning set of prospective homebuyers.

This rebranding effort underscores the true essence of the division’s mission. The name The Creator Collective better signifies the work they are doing and the significant value they bring to online content in the mortgage industry. By embracing this new name, NFM Lending is reaffirming its commitment to innovation in social media and excellence in mortgage lending.

NFM Lending is excited to embark on this new chapter with The Creator Collective and looks forward to the continued impact and inspiration they will bring to the world of homeownership and mortgage education.

LINTHICUM, MD, April 17, 2023— National mortgage lender NFM Lending released its official logo on Wednesday, April 12, 2023, celebrating the milestone achievement of 25 years in business.

“What an incredible landmark for NFM Lending,” said President and Chief Operating Officer Bob Tyson. “Being around for 25 years is a great accomplishment for any company, especially in the mortgage business. NFM has proven to be resilient, mainly due to our employees and emphasis on doing things the right way with the highest standards of integrity.”

Licensed in 49 states, NFM has cemented itself in the top 25 nationally for retail-only companies, helping its consumers secure over $7 billion in home financing in 2022 alone. While the company has routinely received recognition for its fundings, it takes the greatest pride in the achievements centered around employee satisfaction. The company has been named  ‘Top Workplace’ by the Baltimore Sun 11 years in a row and has received the same award from the Washington Post; ‘Top Workplace USA’ by Energage, ‘Best Mortgage Companies to Work For’ by National Mortgage News, ‘Great Place to Work’ by Great Place to Work,  and ‘Top Mortgage Employer’ by National Mortgage Professional Magazine.

“I never set out to create a company that would reach our 25th anniversary,” said Founder/CEO David Silverman. “In the beginning, it was about surviving day-to-day. 25 years happened organically through hiring amazing people who cared. This milestone is for everyone who has touched NFM through the years and helped turn us into a top-25 national mortgage company. I want to thank all of them.”

Elevate Home Loans is a new division of NFM Lending, a national mortgage lending company currently licensed in 47 states plus the District of Columbia. The company was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1998. They attribute their success in the mortgage industry to their steadfast commitment to customers and the community.

Medford Lakes, NJ, March 17, 2022 — Mortgage veterans Mack Dadyan and Larry Colangelo announced today that they have joined NFM Lending in their Medford Lakes, NJ branch located at 4 Trading Post Way. The branch, specializing in residential mortgages throughout Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia is led by Branch Managers Dana Gounaris and Ron Gosewisch.

“We are excited that Mack Dadyan and Larry Colangelo chose to join our team at NFM Lending,” said Gounaris. “They have both demonstrated that they are a top originating team in our market. We are glad they saw the value of our partnership and we are thrilled about the future together.”

Dadyan and Colangelo, whose reputation among clients and business partners have led them to become top mortgage consultants in the nation, conducted an exhaustive search for the right mortgage company.

“After spending the good part of five years as a mortgage banker, I had a clear understanding of the issues that the banking system faces,” noted Dadyan. “There is a dire need for a streamlined, efficient, and technologically comprehensive mortgage process. After investigating 36 companies and interviewing six, I discovered that NFM Lending was the obvious choice. They are by far the most forward thinking and proactive company in our marketplace. Their desire to grow with the loan originator and provide them with the technological resources and tools to manage market changes was the separating factor. Most banks and mortgage companies want the loan originator to look to them for solutions, and those companies then propose one corporate solution to all problems, whether that solution is beneficial to the loan originator or not. NFM Lending was different. They recognize that every loan officer is unique and may require unique solutions to their own individual problems. So, they encourage loan originators to bring the solutions that they require, and NFM works to implement these solutions as quickly and painlessly as possible. They recognize that the loan originator is their own brand and that NFM must first provide us the support to promote our brand. So we feel confident pushing out and acknowledging the corporate brand of NFM. We are excited for new beginnings and to have continued success under NFM.”

Dadyan and Colangelo will focus on expanding NFM’s flexible and powerful lending platform to better serve Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia community families with exceptional customer service. The branch’s goal is to continue to provide the same commitment and dedication to borrowers, ranging from first-time homebuyers to seasoned buyers looking for their next home, a second home, or investment properties. NFM Lending offers Conventional, FHA, VA, USDA, FNMA, Jumbo, and many other loan options to fit every borrower’s need.
