UMortgage Welcomes Sabrina Lopez as Vice President of Operations

PHILADELPHIA, PA., August 23, 2022 — UMortgage is proud to announce Sabrina Lopez as Vice President of Operations. This hire highlights UMortgage’s continued growth as it expands its Executive Leadership team as well as its commitment to housing the best operations support for its Loan Originators within the mortgage industry.

Lopez joins UMortgage after spending the last three-and-a-half years at Homepoint Financial where she was Managing Director of TPO Production. This hire marks yet another member of its Executive Leadership team who joined UMortgage directly from a large, publicly-traded mortgage company. The leadership team is as follows:

  • • Beth Gordon, VP of People: Joined UMortgage after serving four-and-a-half years at Freedom Mortgage, most recently as the Senior Development Lead.
  • • Nancy Petersen, VP of Product: Joined UMortgage after spending two years as the VP of Product at Guaranteed Rate.
  • • David Higgins, VP of Business Innovation: Joined UMortgage after six years at United Wholesale Mortgage, most recently as an Internal Business Consultant. 
  • • Kayla Lopez, VP of Business Innovation: Joined UMortgage after serving one-and-a-half years at United Wholesale Mortgage, most recently as Associate Vice President of Technology.
  • • Gil Arbitsman, Chief Financial Officer: Joined UMortgage after spending five years at American Financial Resources, most recently as their CFO.
  • • Sabrina Lopez, VP of Operations: Joined UMortgage after spending three-and-a-half years as Managing Director of TPO Production at Homepoint.

UMortgage is making a point to hire individuals with leadership experience at some of the largest mortgage companies in the nation, and Lopez is no exception. She has more than 20 years of experience within the mortgage lending industry with 10 of those years in executive leadership roles. 

“I’m super excited to be here and to be a part of this amazing organization,” said Lopez. “My main priorities here at UMortgage are to help improve our Operational speed, efficiency, and scale. I want to help my fellow executive leaders provide all of our LOs and their clients with a unique, first-class experience with the support needed to execute loans flawlessly.”

“I speak on behalf of everyone at UMortgage when I say that we’re incredibly excited to welcome Sabrina to our team,” said Anthony Casa, President and CEO of UMortgage. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sabrina over the last couple of years in her role as Managing Director at Homepoint; we are looking forward to building on the success our operations team has had as we continue to scale nationwide.”

In her role, Lopez will oversee UMortgage’s Operations team to help maintain UMortgage’s standard of 10 days from application received to clear to close. These fast turn-times are a big contributor to UMortgage’s industry-leading NPS score of 98 in July 2022. But beyond the statistics, what is it about UMortgage that was most appealing to Lopez?

“To put it simply: alignment,” continued Lopez. “I am 100% aligned with the vision, culture, and core values of this organization and I’ve waited my whole career to work alongside leaders who think, care, and operate just like I do. Being of an aspirational mindset to change the old, mundane way of operating is rare in this industry and after hearing Anthony’s short-term and long-term goals for this company, I knew this is where I belong.”

These constantly-improving Operations processes directly align with UMortgage’s commitment to create the best platform for LOs to boost their businesses and for consumers to borrow. 

UMortgage doubled its team of LOs in Q2 of 2022, and plans to double that team once again by the end of Q3. To support this growing base of LOs while maintaining its high-standard of lightning-fast cycle times, UMortgage also plans to multiply its Operations support with talented individuals who align with the company’s culture and vision for a better mortgage industry.

While layoffs run rampant across the mortgage industry, UMortgage wants to open the door for skilled processors, LOAs, and closers to join its continuously-growing team. The company will be hosting an Operations Open House on September 15th to give professionals the opportunity to learn more about UMortgage’s processes, standards, and culture directly from its executive leadership team and current Operations team members. Interested individuals can register here for the virtual event—more details about the event will follow.
