Among Top One Percent of Fastest-Growing Emerging Franchises*
October 3, 2018
DENVER – Motto Franchising, LLC announced the sale of its 100th Motto Mortgage franchise, a major milestone just 23 months after its launch. As the first national mortgage brokerage franchise in the U.S., Motto Mortgage was established late October 2016 and sold 50 franchises in its inaugural year in business. Motto Mortgage is also among the top one percent of fastest-growing emerging franchises in 2018, according to an analysis of over 2,500 franchise systems conducted by Franchise Grade®.
An innovative concept, Motto Mortgage is a network of mortgage brokers focused on helping consumers make sense of the home loan process. Motto Mortgage loan originators work hand-in-hand with real estate agents, providing a seamless customer experience from start to finish. With access to a wholesale lending mix, Motto Mortgage network offices provide more home loan options and competitive rates.
Giving praise to a team that has been working tirelessly to get 100 franchises sold while supporting the success of a trailblazing group of entrepreneurs, Motto Franchising, LLC President Ward Morrison recognizes the significance of such a milestone.
“One hundred franchises sold in less than two years is remarkable for a startup franchisor, regardless of the industry. This just showcases how revolutionary the Motto Mortgage model truly is,” said Morrison. “It’s incredibly exciting. We’re charting new territory as the first national mortgage brokerage franchise and will continue to capitalize upon this momentum.”
Bill and Kendall Bonner of Tampa, Florida, purchased the 100th Motto Mortgage franchise. Experienced RE/MAX franchise owners with a combined 40 years of experience as attorneys and real estate professionals, the Bonners will open Motto Mortgage Resource in late 2018. The value of having mortgage as an additional business was clear to the Bonners.
“We’re thrilled to join the Motto Mortgage network. Purchasing a home can be an overwhelming process. Our goal is to truly become a convenient, one-stop shop where customers have the choices they want, and caring experts they know they can count on,” said Kendall Bonner.
