Home Point Financial Corporation (“Home Point Financial”) has expanded their footprint in Arizona by adding two new branches, one in Scottsdale and one in Fountain Hills. The addition of these branches supports Home Point Financial’s retail origination expansion in the western region and their overall strategy to achieve their sales goals.

Along with these new branches, Home Point has brought on several key leaders and top producers in the state. The area will be managed by Richard Pierce, Jr., a sales leader with experience scaling national and regional mortgage platforms, overseeing nearly 700 mortgage loan officers while at Bear Stearns & Co.

“We are really excited to have Richard join the team to lead our growth efforts in Arizona. He brings a wealth of experience and has a history of building strong, successful teams that deliver quality customer service,” said Ty Kern, Senior Managing Director, Distributed Retail.

They have hired Sean Wohland as branch manager of the Scottsdale location, who has built a reputation in the area and is ranked in the top 1% of mortgage loan originators nationally. Sean and his team have extensive experience in the local market and will help build the Home Point brand. In addition, they have hired Julie and Roger Rigstad, a husband and wife mortgage loan origination team who have closed thousands of loans in their licensed states of Arizona and Minnesota to join the Fountain Hills branch.

The branches will originate, underwrite and fund their loans in-house utilizing Home Point’s RealQual expedited underwriting program to quickly close loans in a competitive market. All servicing rights will remain with the organization after closing. This is Home Point Financial’s third branch in Arizona, opening a separate Scottsdale branch in November of last year.

“With top notch teams to lead our new locations, we will be in position to reach our goals in Arizona and on a national level. Sean and Julie and Roger, along with their teams, have a reputation for quality and customer service. Their approach aligns with Home Point’s ‘We Care’ philosophy and culture as well as a desire to succeed,” Ty added.
