Matt Hansen started building the personalized mortgage app as a favor for his brother-in-law, who was a Loan Originator for Republic Mortgage
in Salt Lake City, UT. When it was completed, Matt's mother, (also a Loan Originator), wanted to give her clients and Realtors a personalized application.
A short time later, several more Loan Originator in Matt's family began using the application.
In early 2011, Matt asked mortgage, software, and sales experts, Adam Lane, Dave Stevenson, and Alan Hogan for help to keep up with the feature requests and questions. Since then, we have continued to improve the product and map out the furthest corners of the mobile landscape.
The name SimpleNexus was derived from the purpose of connecting service providers such as Loan Officers, to their clients. Building these products brings clients closer to their service providers by offering value. In turn, retention rates, and personal connection is improved, which translates into increased retention.
Since inception, in 2010, we have been installed on more than one million phones, processed more than four million calculations, and have more than 45,000 referral partner versions of the app. The app has been approved by compliance departments all over the country and Officers from 50 states rely on our product daily. This has given us the performance and reliability edge to build an app that can be depended upon. We improve the apps and website every single day.
