Alamo, Calif. – August 10, 2017 – RPM Mortgage (RPM), the nation’s 17th largest retail mortgage lender, is proud to announce that Co-CEO Tracey Hirt has been recognized as one of the 2017 Women of Influence by HousingWire, an influential source of news and information for U.S. mortgage markets.
HousingWire’s Women of Influence honor recognizes women who have made significant contributions and outstanding efforts to drive the U.S. housing economy over the past 12 months.
“High volume loan production is full of surprises yet must deliver a surprise-free experience to clients and real estate agents,” said Julian Hebron, RPM’s executive vice president of marketing and sales. “It requires the science of credit discipline and speed, as well as the art of common sense decision making firmwide. Tracey is the driving force behind this blend of art and science at RPM and we are honored to be led by such a dedicated and inspiring mortgage professional.
In the past year, Hirt oversaw the integrations of three newly acquired mortgage banks and grew RPM’s total funded volume to $6.7 billion for 2016. She reorganized banking operations around RPM’s signature Advance Approval® program to underwrite purchase loans before clients make offers, enabling them to win bidding wars with cash-like offers.
This program empowered her to implement RPM’s Purchase Closing Guarantee, which pays a client’s lender fees if a loan closes late—but the bank teams she oversees have closed 99% of companywide purchase loans on time or early since January 2016. And finally, she oversaw the rollout of RPM’s digital mortgage, which brings together clients, loan officers and bank teams in one single experience called the Home On Time® App.
“From the inception of our company, Tracey has embodied our core values: All-In, Driven and Approachable,” said RPM Co-CEO Rob Hirt. “These values have continued to grow stronger under her leadership, and have fostered respect and collaboration among all teams throughout RPM. I am very pleased that HousingWire has recognized Tracey for her achievements not only as an executive and business owner, but also as a dedicated working mother of three daughters.”
