International City Mortgage, a privately held residential mortgage direct lender since 1987, announces the opening of its newest retail branch office, naming industry veteran as manager.

International City Mortgage (ICM) today announced that it has opened a new Covina, CA retail loan origination branch to serve the residential home loan needs of homebuyers and homeowners in the San Gabriel Valley, Pomona Valley and Inland Empire.

The company has named industry veteran Ramis Urribarri as the Covina Branch Manager. Urribarri has been active in the real estate mortgage industry since 1989 with extensive experience in government and conventional loans, ranging from FHA and VA to conventional and jumbo loans.

Urribarri believes that his academic background as a graduate with honors and PhD candidate in industrial and systems engineering from USC qualifies him as a skilled manager who is focused on systems optimization, which will result in a well-controlled branch operation and optimal loan process. “I lead by example,” said Urribarri. “I exercise diligence and thoroughness in all aspects of my business, and I monitor all members of the branch to ensure they operate with the same level of commitment.”

“Ramis’s reputation for integrity and great work ethic is well known in the local real estate market,” said Dave Morgan, ICM Regional Vice President. “His personal relationships with local real estate professionals set very high expectations for the future of the branch and promise a stronger presence of International City Mortgage in the San Gabriel Valley, Pomona Valley and Inland Empire.”

Commenting on his real estate sales experience, Urribarri said, “My experience as one of the top local real estate salespersons early in my career will enable me to make a positive contribution to my realtors’ growth and success.”

“We view this new branch as another great chance to serve a wonderful community with a team of proven top performers,” said Mike Matthews, ICM SVP of Production. “We're excited about the opportunity to bring our exceptional service levels and great products to these new customers and business partners.”

Plans for growth in ICM’s new Covina office include recruiting experienced loan officers with a well established production track record, as well as adding manpower capacity in the processing department to meet the demands of growth and maintain the same level of customer service.
