Associate's Spotlight: Union Home Mortgage
Union Home Mortgage (UHM) was founded in 1970 and for more than 45 years has continued to adhere to their vision: “to build a world-class workplace by developing people as spiritual human beings first and mortgage professionals second.” Headquartered in Strongsville, Ohio, with strategically located branches in more than half the nation’s states, UHM recently opened a location in San Antonio to offer the city and its surrounding areas an array of mortgage products which include, but are not limited to, FHA, VA, USDA, Conventional, 203k and Refinance loans.
As REALTORS® it can be comforting to know that UHM will treat your clients as they would their own parents while helping them achieve responsible homeownership. Each loan application that they process is given the personal and professional attention it deserves as they strive to align each borrower with the best loan for their unique financial situation, with the best rate and terms whether they are first time buyers, repeat borrowers or our military veterans.
Since its inception, UHM has established and maintained an outstanding reputation that is based on professional conduct and uncompromising integrity and over the ensuing years, their customer-centric focus has helped them grow to a point where their transactions greatly exceed a billion dollars per year. Much of the company’s success has been attributed to the current owner, President and CEO Bill Cosgrove who joined UHN in 1994, was named its President in 1998 and purchased the company a year later in 1999, at a time when the company’s annual production was at 58 million dollars.
His dedication to the partners of UHM, and to the mortgage industry as a whole is unparalleled, as over the years Cosgrove has been very active in the Mortgage Banking community first as a member of the Ohio Mortgage Bankers Association (OMBA) of which he served as its President in 2007-2008 and with the national Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), serving as its President 2008-2010 and is currently a regular member of MBA’s Board of Governors and Board of Directors. In 2008 & 2013 Bill earned the coveted Hodupp Award for his many contributions to the Ohio MBA.
Union Home Mortgage’s team of dedicated and knowledgeable mortgage professionals is committed to handling your client’s loan application as quickly and efficiently as possible, ensuring the best possible outcome. They work hard to provide a ‘raving fan customer service’ by passing on industry knowledge to every borrower and they are always available to help each of client understand their options so they can select the best loan program for their individual needs.
Union Home Mortgage Corp. was recently named one of the 50 Best Companies to Work For in America by Mortgage Executive Magazine. Each year the magazine invites Mortgage Loan Originators (MLOs) to rate their satisfaction with their current companies and this year more than 10,000 loan officers from 200 mortgage companies and banks participated in the survey to rate their company based on its culture, loan processing, underwriting, compensation, management, marketing, and technology. UHM received an average score of 4.9389 on a scale of one to five giving them an overall ranking of 12 out of 50.
Regarding the award, CEO Bill Cosgrove said, “This award means so much because it showcases the one thing that we pride ourselves on here at UHM, our exceptional company culture.” The culture at UHM stems directly from the company’s ten-part code of conduct which highlights things such as teamwork, communication and “Keeping Promises.” Each and everyday employees are encouraged to live by the code of conduct and uphold the welcoming employee culture. UHM’s Code of Conduct can be found on the website.
