For the last 25 years, we’ve been perfecting our technology to meet the needs of our members. You could say that it’s technology that thinks like a sales professional.
WE GET IT. WE'VE BEEN THERE.
USHERPA KNOWS WHAT EASY LOOKS LIKE.
We understand exactly what mortgage and real estate professionals need to build bulletproof relationships and secure repeat business and referrals – because our founders’ started as Loan Officers, Realtors and mortgage marketers (yes, we know this space really, really well!)
A long time ago (1995 to be exact) our founder Dan Harrington was a Loan Officer who had been originating loans for 5 years, was burned out. Every month was the same old grind: chasing deals, get them closed, rinse and repeat. He knew life would be much better if he was getting more referrals and more repeat business. The problem was how could he get those repeat and refer deals?
The answer hit him one night: he needed to stay connected with his closed clients so they would remember to refer him and come back when they needed a mortgage. Also, he needed to give his Realtors information they could use to help them sell homes, so they’d think of him when referring buyers.
Dan armed himself with a fax machine (!) and a canned direct mail newsletter to clients. It worked and other LO’s noticed. And Usherpa was born.
Now Usherpa is armed with the industry’s most sophisticated, cloud-based CRM/Marketing Automation system. We call it Relationship Engagement and we’ve helped thousands of Loan Officers stay connected with partners and clients. These LO’s have helped hundreds of thousands of borrowers fulfill their dreams of homeownership.
