“Our focus is always on our members, and our partnership with FirstClose supports our goal of delivering the best member and processor experience possible,” said Austin Coleman, senior vice president of mortgage lending at America First. “Because we absorb many of the fees for our members, efficiency at every stage of the origination process takes on greater importance, and automation on both sides of the transaction is key. Through our integration with FirstClose, loan officers, underwriters, and processors never have to leave their LOS, which greatly increases our efficiency with home equity lending.”
