Mortgage Services Company Grows 762% During Worst Housing Slump In Decades.

Share Article

Not all mortgage companies have suffered over the last two years. In fact, Urban Lending Solutions has grown by 762% during the worst housing slump in decades. Their success can be attributed to three key factors: 1.) Anticipating the market shift and quickly developing services to adjust 2.) Always supporting their mission of homeownership advocacy, and 3.) Using their minority business designation to help support employment in their communities.

Urban Lending Solutions, LLC., one of the largest minority-owned mortgage services companies in the nation, has been named for the second consecutive year to the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing private companies. This year, Urban has gained an overall ranking of #389 and a financial services ranking of #22.

With offices in Pittsburgh, PA and Broomfield, CO, Urban Lending Solutions has grown over 762% since 2006. Urban Lending was previously known as Urban Settlement Services prior to the name change earlier this year. Urban changed the name to reflect the company’s expansion of products and services for mortgage origination and servicing, including new offerings in the outsourced underwriting, loss mitigation, and valuations.

“Our growth over the last four years is a reflection of the commitment and energy of our staff and management team,” commented Charles Sanders, the company’s CEO and Founder. “Every team member at Urban is committed to working with lenders and servicers to advance American homeownership.”

Since the company’s founding in 1998, Urban Lending Solutions established itself as one of the largest national providers of home retention services in addition to the title, appraisal, credit and closing services it has offered for more than 10 years. Urban is a leading supplier of real estate information solutions to mortgage lenders, servicers and government agencies.

To be eligible for the Inc. 500, the company must be based in the U.S., privately owned, for profit, and independent. The list is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2006 to 2009.

Urban Lending Solutions is also a certified Minority Owned Business (MBE) through the NMSDC (National Minority Supplier Diversity Council), and a consistent teir-1 vendor for many of the nation’s Top 20 banks and mortgage servicers.
