Marketplace Home Mortgage enters its next state with ambitious expansion plans.


A leading provider in home mortgage services is tapping a 15-year veteran of the Dubuque area market, as part of its expansion into the state of Iowa, the company announced today.

Marketplace Home Mortgage plans to open five branches across the Hawkeye State this year. That starts with the Dubuque office, where senior loan officer Sara Lindecker is already a go-to be a resource among local real estate agents to help home buyers simplify the mortgage process.

“Sara’s experience gives us an anchor in eastern Iowa as we expand across the state,” said Marketplace Business Development Manager Craig Nester. “She’s the perfect ambassador to show Iowans how Marketplace out performs our competition.”

Lindecker grew up in the tri-state area and says Marketplace’s advanced technologies focused on home buyers and Realtors – like the mobile app which lets them check the status of their application and upload documents – present a new opportunity for her to provide exemplary service to her clients.

“Dubuque’s strong housing market means real estate agents and lenders will compete for the chance to serve home buyers,” Lindecker said. “I’m excited to work for a company that’s always thinking about how best to serve those customers.”

Other Markeplace branches are slated for Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and Davenport, Nester said. The Minnesota-based company has branches in a growing number of other states including Colorado, Wisconsin and Florida.

“Our unique approach to serving real estate partners and home buyers has made Marketplace a sought-after commodity,” said CEO Keith White. “Loan officers like Sara are phenomenal relationships builders in the markets they know best, and these are the people that will allow us to grow across the U.S.”
