It’s hard to believe we’re in the final weeks of 2016. It’s as if the year came and went at the blink of an eye. And to think TRID has been ingrained in our mortgage lending lives for over a year now and we’re all still alive, well…is a miracle. 

All jokes aside, the past 365 days have been one for the record books here at LBA Ware.

  • We went from 9 CompenSafe mortgage lending clients to 22;
  • Recognized as a leader in mortgage technology by HousingWire;
  • Joined forces with The Mortgage Collaborative and Ellie Mae, becoming official partners;
  • And welcomed a handful of brilliant minds to our team.

For these and many other achievements, founder and CEO Lori Brewer bussed the LBA Ware crew out to the country for a night of celebration. 

We shared stories roasting marshmallows, raised our glasses over the bonfire, toasted to the future, and even walked away with superlative trophies.  It was a perfect ending to our exciting year, and nobody said it better than Lori herself:
