SAN DIEGO, July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BluFi Lending, a direct lender for home loans, announces the opening of a Walnut Creek, California, office and the company's third office in the state. New branch manager Mario Vargas leads a team of mortgage bankers, processors, and back office staff to service the company's expanding client base. The 5,000 square foot office is located at 2175 N. California Blvd, Suite 425, Walnut Creek.
As mortgage rates remain low, the country has seen a surge in consumer demand for home loans. BluFi executives are adding major branch offices such as Walnut Creek and San Diego, smaller satellite offices, and numerous new staff to efficiently handle the increased volume. The growth also helps the company maintain its reputation for fast loan closings – BluFi's goal is to close loans within 21 days.
To continue the BluFi standard, Vargas is building a team of purchase loan producers to provide 24-hour underwriting and overall fast funding times. The office is still accepting applications, and interested parties can access the BluFi recruitment site at http://bluficareers.com.
"The best way for us to help consumers and real estate professionals is by increasing our capacity to handle home loans, and this new office does just that," said John Lee, BluFi Lending president and CEO. "We manage everything in house, from processing and underwriting to funding, so we can provide the best rates and fastest closing times in our office areas. Mario and the team at Walnut Creek have done a great job expanding into the Bay area, and we can now deliver excellent BluFi service to more customers. Additionally, we plan to start servicing loans in 2013!"
To celebrate the company's growth and deliver on its promise of impactful community involvement through its charitable outreach program BluFi Cares, BluFi is making July "Kids Count Month." The company will sponsor two well known charitable organizations catering to children. On July 21, 2012 BluFi will hold its first annual company picnic benefiting the Rady Children's Hospital. BluFi is also sponsoring the Make a Wish Foundation of San Diego. BluFi will donate $3,000 to help grant the organization's 3,000th wish.
