First Internet Bank took honors as the top Online Mortgage Originator in the 2013 Mortgage Technology Awards. The award recognizes a lender’s use of Web-based technologies to generate borrower leads and convert them into closed loans. The Bank received the award at a ceremony sponsored by Mortgage Technology on Sunday, October 27 in Washington, DC.
“What an honor it is to receive this award, as we have significantly expanded our online mortgage origination operation in recent years,” said President and CEO David Becker. “This award recognizes the hard work of our dedicated team and well respected business partners to deliver incredible service to a growing base of satisfied consumers.”
As a non-traditional bank, First Internet Bank offers consumer deposit accounts and loans nationally without a branch network and therefore boasts competitive rates and fees thanks to its lower cost structure. Prospective borrowers can get up-to-the-minute rate quotes and complete an online mortgage application – and even receive a decision – in just minutes, 24/7. Highly experienced and trained sales professionals provide guidance as needed and serve as a point of contact for the customer throughout the process. First Internet Bank offers both refinancing and homebuying programs, including FHA, VA, conventional, and jumbo financing.
