OWINGS MILLS, Md. (Sept. 9, 2021) – To help its branch partners nationwide diversify their product offerings with reverse mortgages, Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc. (PRMI) has designated The Steven J. Sless Group of Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc. as its dedicated reverse mortgage center.
Specializing in reverse mortgages for nearly two decades, the Maryland-based group opened in 2019 under the leadership of Steven J. Sless, CLTC® (NMLS 298581), who is regarded in the industry and by the media as the “go-to housing wealth source.”
PRMI soon experienced accelerated reverse mortgage growth due to The Sless Group’s knack for closing reverse mortgage loans quicker than the industry average and getting clients approved for loans that other lenders or processors did not. This prompted Sless’ 2021 promotion to division president. He was also named a Reverse Mortgage Industry “Game Changer” by Yahoo Finance and The Sless Group opened a second branch in California.
“PRMI shares The Sless Group’s commitment to succeed in the reverse mortgage space, and we feel that this partnership has poised our organization to become one of the nation’s top reverse mortgage lenders,” said PRMI President of Retail Chris Jones.
The Sless Group now provides hands-on support throughout the entire reverse loan process to PRMI’s branch partners nationwide. Through a dedicated online platform, the team actively coordinates all aspects of PRMI’s reverse mortgage operations including sales management, loan support, technology, investor relations and more.
PRMI branch partners can simply log on to request help with a reverse mortgage loan, process their reverse mortgage loan or refer a reverse mortgage loan to The Sless Group. Along with having a pre-underwriting review on every loan, they are assigned a dedicated loan coordinator to get their file to the closing table quickly. They also receive regular communication about where the loan stands through every step of the processing journey and can opt for clients to receive automated status notifications as well.
Support and guidance come from entire Sless Group management team:
“We’re all here to help our PRMI colleagues close more reverse loans faster and easier,” Sless said. “Our goal is to build their confidence in using reverse loan products, while empowering them with the overall knowledge of how housing wealth fits into a winning retirement income strategy for our clients.”
Sless plans to hire experienced reverse mortgage professionals – to work in existing PRMI branches or in reverse mortgage-exclusive branches opening throughout the country under The Sless Group umbrella. He also is leading PRMI’s transition from brokering reverse mortgage loans to becoming a lender – a move slated to take place Oct. 1.
“Becoming a lender will give us more control over the manufacturing of loans, providing our clients with a more streamlined process and faster turnaround times,” Sless added.
