The Movement Story

Movement Mortgage was created in 2008 amid one of the biggest financial meltdowns in American history. Our founders saw an opportunity: Step into the chaos to restore customer service and integrity in the mortgage industry. We committed to being a Movement of Change in the mortgage industry, in corporate cultures and in communities.

Our Process

At Movement, it’s our goal to deliver 6-hour Upfront Underwriting on every loan so that each homebuyer is equipped with a bona-fide credit decision as soon as possible. From there, we work toward a revolutionary 7-day processing goal to ensure a stress-free closing.

Underwriting every loan at the beginning of the process gives borrowers and real estate agents confidence and an advantage in a crowded market. This prevents last minute issues and ensures a smooth overall experience.

At Movement, we do things differently. By working to a 7 day processing goal, we help reduce stress, and bring families home faster. Our process is goaloriented rather than deadline-oriented and is unique to Movement Mortgage.

Purpose Beyond Profit

Our company’s mission statement: We exist to love and value people by leading a Movement of Change in our industry, corporate culture and communities.

How do we accomplish this? Take a look.

Corporate

Community

In 2012, co-founders Casey Crawford and Toby Harris established the Movement Foundation, a nonprofit arm designed to receive company profits and invest them in good works.

Today, the Movement Foundation has already invested more than $16.5 million of mortgage profit into community projects that bring life, light and hope to people who have been underserved.
