Providing a collaborative platform for lenders, title agents, appraisers, attorneys, notaries, settlement agents, borrowers and others involved in real estate transactions.
Our team connects the diverse talents and knowledge of professionals with mortgage lending, real estate, legal, software development and cybersecurity backgrounds. Collectively we have been involved in tens of thousands of loan transactions and have seen firsthand the need for a platform like Stavvy, especially for local and regional lenders that lack the resources to develop these technologies internally.
