Celebrating wemlo’s Acquisition Anniversary with Three Leaders

This month, wemlo reflects on a landmark day in our company’s history. No, it is not the day we originally opened our doors in Florida. It isn’t even the day we began to revolutionize third-party loan processing. This September, we celebrate the two-year anniversary of RE/MAX® Holdings Inc. acquiring wemlo.  

The acquisition by RE/MAX, one of the world's leading franchisors of real estate brokerage services, has certainly helped the wemlo brand continually evolve and make huge moves within the mortgage broker channel.  

While we enthusiastically look ahead to wemlo’s future, we want to reflect on how far we’ve come since the acquisition. In honor of our second anniversary, we’re chatting with some of the original #teamlo to see how the acquisition has propelled wemlo’s evolution.  

Strengthening wemlo’s Capabilities

Joining one of the most powerful names in the housing industry would be a game-changing experience for most startups and wemlo was no exception. Hector R., head of accounts, reflects on how our parent company’s support, specifically the team of tech experts, has propelled wemlo. “The RE/MAX acquisition has brought structure to ensure our business growth does not plateau and that we have the systems in place to handle an influx of business,” said Hector R.  

Investing In the Heart of wemlo

As wemlo’s very first employee, Chelsea B., vice president of operations, has been instrumental in shaping wemlo and cites the executive training and leadership development as one of the main reasons she’s successfully climbed the ladder at wemlo. Here is what Chelsea B., had to say about applying these learnings and strategically leading her team, “I’ve learned how to identify talents and further develop those skills to find the perfect roles for each team member. This, in turn, helps create a well-oiled processing machine.” 

Looking Towards the Future

Dora G., manager of loan processor education, knows the sky’s the limit when it comes to wemlo’s future thanks to the backing of our parent company. “Since the acquisition, we’ve grown exponentially and have been able to focus on capturing more wholesale market share. At the risk of sounding cliché, I see wemlo as the top processing company available for wholesale loan originators and the ultimate one-stop-shop out there,” said Dora G.
