At MountainSeed, we have developed a reputationwith our community and regional lender clients asbeing “different”. We believe that our clients valuea healthy and sustainable relationship betweenthe lender and their appraisal panel and desire tocontinue to foster that healthy relationship, even afterengaging an AMC. While many appraisers aren’t too fond of AMCs (to say the least), we’ve found that most appraisers enjoy doing business with MountainSeed.
We care about attitude and approach.You should notice the difference when you speak with our staff,other clients, the appraisers with whom we work,and the many industry and trade organizations withwhich we work, including state and national bankingassociations and appraiser-advocacy groups.
While we could never replace our clients’ compliancedepartment or shoulder their regulatory responsibilities,we maintain internal compliance personnel to assist us in developing industry best practices. Through this process we proactively communicate with State and Federal agencies and industry trade groups so as to improve our process, and we pass that knowledge alongto our clients. We have been featured in many industry publications including National Mortgage News,American Banker, Housing Wire, The Virginia Banker,and Tennessee Banker, and we have spoken at local andnational events for the American Bankers Association,Michigan Bankers Association, SNL Financial, GeorgiaBankers Association, and others.
Check out some of these Best Practices:
Deadlines are important to our clients and we nevercease to be amazed when we hear stories of others in ourindustry not respecting client expectations on turnaroundtimes. At MountainSeed, we communicate with ourclients on order status and strive to never leave a client inthe dark. While unforeseen circumstances arise, our goalis to keep the percentage of past-due orders under 1% ofour total order volume.
