Engineered to Shine

Welcome to LoanStar Home Lending! Although the date LoanStar Home Lending was launched – 11/12/13 – was not planned, it has become somewhat of a mystical and magical power date that has launched LoanStar on a fast-track to success. With a founding group of 52 mortgage professionals the company has expanded from its headquarters in Portland, Oregon to multiple branch locations and licenses in Washington, California, Idaho, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, and Hawaii with other state applications pending every month. Now with over 450 employees, more branches in other states on the horizon, and sights to close over $1.75 billion in loan production in 2017, LoanStar is growing – quickly – into a major mortgage banking operation.

How does LoanStar shine in a competitive, consolidating industry? It’s a combination of things that make up the LoanStar culture that is attracting talented mortgage pros from Seattle to Miami!

What Makes LoanStar Shine


Making a move is never easy, but our focus on proper onboarding makes your transition to LoanStar as seamless as possible. Our Onboarding Team consists of LoanStars from every department who keep a close watch on you from pre-hire through day one to funding your first loans.

Loan Products

LoanStar is a correspondent mortgage bank with over 30 investors to close nearly every loan type available in the market today. This robust portfolio is important to compete in price as well as placement of conventional, government, jumbo, ALT-QM and other niche programs.

Operational Effeciency

We keep processor pipelines small so that they can take every loan from start to finish. This allows originators time to find new loans and referral relationships and build volume. LoanStar staffs ahead of our growing pipeline with enough processors, underwriters and closers to maintain best-in-market turn times. Our operations staff is organized to load-balance as needed to close loans on time.


LoanStar has a database marketing system that is producing nearly 50% of all close volume. Your database is put to work in our proven 26-Touch Marketing System and completely handled by Marketing Coordinators dedicated to your business. LoanStar also provides support for web sites, social media, collateral materials, and open houses.
