Matt Ridgeway to Bring Better Service, More Choice to Local Mortgage Origination Industry

DENVER – Motto Mortgage, an innovative mortgage brokerage franchise and the second member of the RE/MAX Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: RMAX) family of brands, announced that Matt Ridgeway, Founder/Partner of RE/MAX Real Estate Group in Charles Town and Martinsburg, West Virginia, has purchased the first Motto Mortgage franchise in the Mountain State. Ridgeway has been in the RE/MAX network for more than 23 years.

“I have tremendous faith in the leadership of Motto Mortgage,” said Ridgeway. “Opening a franchise in Martinsburg will bring a better level of service and more mortgage options to buyers and refinancers in eastern West Virginia. I’m very pleased to be the first Motto Mortgage franchisee in the state.”

Motto Mortgage officially launched on Oct. 25 and is expected to bring more choice and a better experience for consumers. Its loan originators work with real estate agents to help homebuyers obtain the mortgage loans that best fit their individual needs.

“On behalf of our entire team, I want to welcome Matt to the Motto Mortgage network,” said Motto Mortgage President Ward Morrison. “He’s firmly committed to improving the loan origination experience in West Virginia, and we’re very excited that he’s bringing the brand to the state.”

Motto Mortgage inspires new specialists to join the profession by offering them tools, resources and proximity to a real estate brokerage and its agents. Homebuyers can work with a real estate agent to find a home, and with a Motto Mortgage loan originator to secure financing in offices at one location. Motto Mortgage loan originators will not be bound to the products of one specific lender but will have access to competitive loan options from various sources.

Motto Franchising, LLC is based in Denver, Colorado. Each Motto Mortgage franchise is independently owned and operated. For more information, please email newsroom@mottomortgage.com or visit https://www.mottomortgage.com.
