The Mortgage Collaborative, an independent mortgage cooperative, announced its partnership with tech firm Blend to improve the lending experience with a digital, automated platform.

“Lenders stand to save ample time, energy and resources when they can offer their customers a truly digital mortgage experience,” said Rich Swerbinsky, EVP of national sales & strategic alliances for the Collaborative. “Blend’s platform is well-regarded in the industry, and we look forward to helping place their technology in the hands of more lenders through our network.”

Members of the San Diego-based mortgage cooperative will have access to the Silicon Valley firm’s white-label platform, and lenders can provide borrowers with “a simpler, faster application process using any desktop, tablet, or mobile device.”

“Blend uses technology and consumer-centered design to provide the most seamless home lending process possible,” said Nima Ghamsari, CEO & co-founder of Blend. “The Mortgage Collaborative has assembled an impressive roster of lenders, and this partnership will help ensure lenders of all shapes and sizes can offer their consumers a truly modern borrowing experience.”
