embrace success For over 28 years , Embrace Home Loans has been a trusted leader in the mortgage industry. Headquartered in scenic Newport, Rhode Island, with 17 retail branch offices nationwide, Embrace currently employs 600 people doing business across 46 states. We know that success in the 21st century requires incomparable customer service and exceptional products. That differentiation in a competitive marketplace demands the ability to leverage technology, and utilize innovative marketing techniques. But at Embrace Home Loans we realize that to be truly successful, to really stand out, requires an investment in our most valuable resource, our people. Embrace maintains an atmosphere where employee appreciation, growth and accountability are its core values. In these turbulent times, these values have allowed us not only to survive, but to flourish.
To be a leader in:
Honoring customer experience
Supporting professional and personal development of each other
Utilizing corporate resources to help our neighbors
Financial performance for our industry
Embrace Home Loans’ management team averages over 18 years of experience at the company. The management team’s tenure illustrates both an impressive commitment to the company, as well as to each other. Over the years, this group has confronted and excelled in a myriad of interest rate, housing, regulatory and product environments. The company’s growth is attributed to our vision and values.
Embrace is committed to the communities where employees and customers reside. A significant portion of pre-tax profits is distributed to charity each month. Over the past 5 years we have donated more than $13.5 million to charitable causes. Embrace matches 100% of eligible employee charitable donations of $25 or more, up to $2,500 per calendar year, and employees are encouraged to take up to 100 paid hours off to volunteer for a charitable organization. Embrace matches each volunteer hour with a $10 donation to the qualified charitable organization. embrace community
embrace financial strength
Embrace Home Loans’ financial position is strong. While we have regularly reinvested to strengthen our infrastructure, continued profitability and disciplined cost-management practices have preserved capital, and created a solid cash foundation. And although the current economic environment finds many in our industry cash-starved and suffering weakened balance sheets, our positions are at historically high levels. As a result, Embrace has maintained committed banking and financing relationships, affording us competitive advantages in the marketplace.
Through concentrated training and effective process recalibration, Embrace can adapt quickly and profitably to shifts in investor and consumer demand. This is best illustrated by Embrace’s stability during the collapse of the sub prime market. During the past 3 years, Embrace virtually maintained its’ overall production volume, making 2010 our 11th profitable year in a row.
