United Wholesale Mortgage

Mat Ishbia is president and CEO of United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM), a leading wholesale mortgage lender. 

According to Ishbia, while many people have adopted a “do it yourself” mentality in today’s technology era, a brokerage is the best place for a borrower to obtain a loan, the best place for a real estate agent to refer a loan, and the best place for a loan originator to work. When it comes to getting a mortgage, the importance of people should not be overlooked. Ishbia believes many homebuyers fail to recognize the importance of working with professionals who have years of knowledge and experience to guide them through the process.
