VANTAGE MORTGAGE GROUP
Andy Harris of Oregon-based Vantage Mortgage Group is best known in the industry for his support of originator independence and wholesale lending. By gaining a better understanding of regulatory changes and the industry’s inaccurate and pervasive coverage around wholesale lending, Harris was able to pinpoint advantages and improvements for consumers and independent mortgage brokers. As a result, he opened Vantage Mortgage Group, which supports broker independence.
In addition to his leadership at his brokerage, Harris served as president of the Oregon Association of Mortgage Professionals from 2010 to 2012 and is currently serving as executive director and treasurer of NAMB.
