RPM Mortgage, Inc. Opens Branch in Santa Barbara


SANTA BARABARA, Calif. – July 17, 2014 – RPM Mortgage, Inc., a leading private mortgage lender, is proud to announce the opening of its 20th Southern California branch, located in Santa Barbara. The RPM Santa Barbara office is at 29 W. Micheltorena St. Santa Barbara, CA 93101. Jennifer Ellison, a 20 year mortgage veteran and Santa Barbara native, will lead the team as the branch manager.

“Jennifer’s work ethic and client service levels are exemplary, making her and her team an excellent cultural fit for RPM,” said Rob Hirt, CEO of RPM Mortgage. “We are eager to build a successful relationship with the Santa Barbara community.”

In 2013 Ellison was recognized by Mortgage Executive Magazine as one of the Top 1% Mortgage Originators in America.

RPM’s in-house mortgage bank allows them to offer streamlined processes, fast turnaround times and a wide selection of loan programs. According to Trulia the average listing price of homes for sale in this affluent community hovering at around $2.2 mm; the need for a boutique lender who specializes in jumbo loans in this market is apparent.

“We were drawn to RPM because of the company’s Can Do Will Do spirit and support of its loan advisors,” said Ellison. “We are particularly excited to be able to draw from such a wide array of jumbo loan offerings to meet the unique needs of our Santa Barbara clientele.”

This office opening marks the fifth new branch RPM has launched in 2014. Growth is already on the horizon for the Santa Barbara team who will soon be adding three loan advisors and moving to a permanent location.
