We are excited to announce that Marketplace Home Mortgage will be adding an Iowa market to our growing list of service areas and locations.  As part of this expansion, we will be welcoming Senior Loan Officer, Sara Lindecker, a 15-year veteran of the Dubuque area market.

“Sara’s experience gives us an anchor in eastern Iowa as we expand across the state,” said Marketplace Business Development Manager Craig Nester. “She’s the perfect ambassador to show Iowans how Marketplace outperforms our competition.”

Lindecker grew up in the tri-state area and says Marketplace’s advanced technologies focused on home buyers and Realtors – like the mobile app which lets them check the status of their application and upload documents – present a new opportunity for her to provide exemplary service to her clients.

“Dubuque’s strong housing market means real estate agents and lenders will compete for the chance to serve home buyers,” Lindecker said. “I’m excited to work for a company that’s always thinking about how best to serve those customers.”

“Our unique approach to serving real estate partners and home buyers has made Marketplace a sought-after commodity,” says CEO Keith White. “Loan officers like Sara are phenomenal relationships builders in the markets they know best, and these are the people that will allow us to grow across the U.S.”

Marketplace Home Mortgage’s South Dakota Team Continues to Grow

We are excited to announce that our South Dakota base has continued to expand with the addition of another key loan officer.

Jen Albers

After nearly 15 years as a mortgage loan officer at a large bank, Jen Albers joins our growing team of home mortgage experts in Sioux Falls. She’ll work alongside Josh Osborne, another new major hire, as a key team member assisting the company’s goal of becoming the No. 1 mortgage lender in the city within a year.

“I’m thrilled to join Marketplace and help South Dakotans find their perfect home,” Albers said. “I am so excited to surround myself with the professionals at Marketplace and continue to learn what has made them so successful.  Through working with the best, I will be able to provide my clients and customers even better products and services.”

Albers said Marketplace’s deep catalog of loan programs and marketing tools convinced her to join the company. She’s also excited to use Marketplace’s industry-leading technology suite, which speeds up and simplifies the loan approval process for every party involved.

More and more loan officers with backgrounds at large banks are joining Marketplace for similar reasons, said Northwest Regional Manager John Showers.

“We’re big enough to offer our team the resources of a major financial institution, but nimble enough to stay on top of industry trends,” Showers said. “New hires see the value in our innovative approach to the mortgage business, such as the security that comes with our On-Time Closing Guarantee.”

Marketplace is continuing to expand our Sioux Falls presence as the area is experiencing major growth in industries like health care.

“We fought hard to bring Jen and Josh on board because they operate with the high level of excellence Marketplace is known for,” CEO Keith White said. “I have great confidence that our new team members in Sioux Falls will deliver the same extraordinary results and bring outstanding benefits to their clients that we are known for in every market we operate in around the country. ”

South Dakota’s Top Loan Producer Joins Marketplace Home Mortgage

Josh Osborne

In his seven years as a loan officer, Osborne has created a respected, experienced group of home mortgage professionals. Last year alone his team executed more than 400 closings. The Sioux Empire Housing Partnership named him 2016’s housing lender of the year. The state Housing Development Authority deemed him the “best of the best” at helping families use its first-time homebuyer program in the Sioux Falls region.

“Josh has built in less than a decade what many people take a lifetime to achieve,” said Marketplace Northwest Regional Manager John Showers. “He matches the Marketplace profile of friendly, expert service with no surprises along the way.”

“We love the people and economics of Sioux Falls. It is a key piece of our strategy in this region and we believe that our unique approach to reaching more consumers will help further enhance the home buying experience for the people of SD,” said CEO Keith White.  “We wanted the right person to expand and lead our South Dakota footprint, and there’s truly no better choice.”
