Summit Realty Group News
Summit Realty Group, a division of SRG Holdings, LLC, headquartered in Newport Beach, CA announced today its strategic partnership with United American Mortgage (UMAC) of Irvine, CA at Newport Beach Pacific Club. Heads of both companies discussed opportunities to further grow their mutual interests and offer SRG’s agents superior service, support and mortgage solutions. Plans are being rolled out currently to SRG’s agents in their respective markets.
Summit Realty Group is a rapidly growing full service real estate brokerage using a virtual platform with more than 600 agents and brokers in California, Colorado, Washington, Texas and Florida. While the company was launched in California in 2006, it is now based in 5 key states to further grow its turnkey platform for top producing real estate agents. Summit uses a streamlined platform to reduce overall operating costs while being able to offer agents more support, training, marketing and social media solutions and the industry’s four leading 100% commission programs.
At the recent meeting in Newport Beach, Al Hensling president of UMAC described Summit Realty Group as an innovative leader in defining the future of real estate. Hensling, who has been a keynote speaker at meetings of the National Association of Mortgage Brokers and the California Association of Mortgage Brokers, spoke at length about mortgage trends and why UAMC is more nimble and offers better customer service than banks.
“We are extremely compatible with Summit,” explained Jeff Konopka, Senior Loan Officer for UMAC,” being that Summit’s model is virtual and that we also do the bulk of our mortgage business in the virtual environment. Not only can we originate loan applications on our web site and mobile devices for clients, but for agents we plan to reach out to them using many technology based solutions and other means to provide as much of a face to face presence and support as possible.”
Konopka said he plans to make the circuit of Summit training meetings and new agent orientations whether the groups are large or small to demonstrate the ease of the system and answer questions, adding that he is always available to individuals via phone, email, fax or text message. Agents can also find him on Linked In and via Summit’s in-house communication portals.
John Manno, CEO & Managing Partner of Summit Realty Group, said he had his business development team initiated talks with UAMC because he was impressed with them as a full service mortgage company offering a full complement of loan programs, the best products in the industry—large enough to handle a large volume of work and yet small enough to be “hands on” and responsive.
“Because of our in-house capabilities including underwriting and funding, we have the ability to make quick lending decisions and quick executions because it is all at our fingertips,” Konopka said.
John Manno, said he expects good things from the strategic partnership. “The award-winning experienced Mortgage Professionals at UAMC have developed into one of the largest independently owned Mortgage Originators in the U.S.,” Manno said, “and so I am confident that they can handle Summit’s growth as we continue to expand.”
