National Mortgage Lender NewRez enters Jacksonville market

August 19th, 2020 · Leave a Comment

NewRez LLC, a national mortgage lending and servicing organization, has announced plans to more than double their employee team in Jacksonville. After opening a service center in March, they now plan to expand their footprint, making Jacksonville one of their enterprise core locations.

The Fort Washington, Pennsylvania-based company opened a Jacksonville office earlier this year as part of an asset acquisition of mortgage lender, Ditech. The Company’s senior leadership toured Jacksonville, met with Chamber of Commerce representatives, and recognized the tremendous benefits of doing business in the area. Rather than consolidate work functions into other corporate offices, NewRez opted to make Jacksonville their fourth service center and bring on 90 former Ditech employees. With significant plans for growth, the company is now ready to add even more.

NewRez is now planning to hire an additional 100 jobs in Jacksonville, including positions in mortgage sales, loan processing, underwriting, and collections. Corporate support functions will also be needed in recruiting, training, and information technology. Their hiring will be based on assembling the best team, so there’s potential for adding even more beyond the initial 100 positions.

NewRez recognizes that it is in the business of building and supporting communities. Because of this, the organization created a community investment initiative called NewRez NOW (Neighborhood Outreach Works). Through NewRez NOW, NewRez is invested in the health, vibrancy and sustainability of communities through charitable contributions, outreach, and participation. The program includes a variety of components that support community investment at the corporate level, as well as promote active participation by employees in causes that are close to their hearts through charitable giving, grant programs, and volunteerism.

JAXUSA Partnership, the economic development arm of JAX Chamber, has focused on growing financial services as one of its targeted industries and now more than 60,000 people locally are employed in the sector. That includes more than 1,000 new financial services jobs in the past year.
