Orion Lending Enhances Appraisal Services With Mercury Network

The nationwide wholesale mortgage banking company delivers streamlined appraisal process to broker partners

 August 30, 2017 -- Oklahoma City, OK, Orange, CA -- Orion Lending, a fast-growing wholesale mortgage bank, today announced the deployment of Mercury Network to manage all appraisal pipelines. The company’s broker partners use Orion’s proprietary STAR portal to manage loans from one convenient location, including the entire appraisal process now powered by Mercury Network, now a part of CoreLogic.

Mercury Network connects Orion Lending to their preferred appraisal management companies (AMCs) for appraisal order fulfillment inside the STAR portal, with one-stop access for broker partners. Orion’s broker partners have more visibility into order status, and a single location for all appraisal orders regardless of the vendor used. Mercury Network’s platform also gives Orion Lending enhanced reporting for effective vendor oversight and an easier process for placing appraisal orders.

“In evaluating all of the platforms with our vendor oversight team, Mercury Network stood out in a number of different categories”, said Jeremy Stewart, President of Orion Lending. “Mercury’s team is technologically progressive and has very high satisfaction ratings. By offering the highest quality appraisal workflow, the platform will help Orion Lending in our mission to assist our network of originators develop their referral business and clientele.”

“We’re thrilled to welcome Orion Lending,” said Jennifer Miller, president of Mercury Network. “We will support their broker partners with a seamless appraisal process that accelerates closings, provides the easiest access to preferred valuation vendors, and dramatically reduces appraisal-related headaches.”
