Specializing in residential home loans, Supreme Lending is a full-service mortgage banking company that provides a variety of options for homeowners including traditional, government and specialty loans. For Supreme Lending, its philosophy of “building customers for life” resonates in all aspects of the business.
“We always strive to be honest and accountable and to proactively communicate with our customers,” says John McClellan, Regional Manager for Supreme Lending. “We provide competitive interest rates and fast closings, and want to make sure our clients and REALTORS can interact with a live person, either over the phone or face-to-face.”
McClellan, who also serves as Austin Branch manager, oversees the Austin, San Antonio, Killeen and Houston areas as regional manager. “Since Supreme Lending Austin opened in March 2007, we have grown in volume from $60 million a year to over $500 million per year,” he says. “Currently, we are focused on Central Texas and serving our referral partners and clients.”
Locally, Supreme Lending has offices in North and Central Austin, where they provide educational seminars and training. “We use our Austin training facility to host our realtor partners for continuing education and current industry seminars. Recently our condo division team presented to our local REALTORS,” McClellan says. “Additionally, our loan officers and staff have access to the most advanced tools and technology, so they are able to support our clients in finding the right mortgage solution.”
With over a decade of success in Austin, Supreme Lending has adapted quickly and effectively to changes in the industry. According to McClellan, 2018 will be no different. “This year will bring a lot of consolidation in our industry,” he says. “Compliance costs and a general compression in margins will drive mortgage companies to be more efficient and to automate parts of the process even more than they are now. Mortgage companies are facing a more competitive environment in 2018 and this will lead to diminished profitability as margins are squeezed.”
Whether working with potential homeowners or investors, Supreme Lending remains focused on providing quality customer service and seamless transactions for its clients. “Supreme Lending’s average ‘Clear to Close’ is 22.87 days from application,” McClellan says. “We are local, accountable and offer competitive rates. Our dependable, educated professionals always provide strong communication throughout the loan process to ensure a smooth transaction and experience for our clients.”
