In the News
American Financial Resources, Inc. announces it will now offer a Conventional One-Time Close (OTC) program – in both its wholesale (AFR Wholesale) and retail (eLEND®) channels – which provides permanent financing for a new stick-built or manufactured home, that converts to a standard conventional mortgage once construction is completed. This offering rounds out the mortgage lender's existing single-close construction financing suite of products and features.
On this episode of Mortgage X, Laura Brandao, President of American Financial Resources joins Christine and Frazier to talk about how she built a wholesale channel in 2007 from nothing, starting with just a desk, computer, one product, and her hustle to generate 200 million a month in production in one year.
