We exist as an organization to fix the broken mortgage finance system and in doing so, help rebuild the very fabric that has made our children whole, our neighbors proud, and our communities safe.
We believe getting a home loan should be easy, transparent, fast, and free of commissions and fees. Banks and brokers have failed us, so at Lenda, we have built technology to reimagine the experience of getting a home loan. We do it for all of the homeowners and homeowners-to-be that have dealt with telemarketers at dinner time, excessive and unclear fees, never-ending paperwork, systemic discrimination, and off-the-charts levels of stress and frustration.
To our customers, and for that matter, all customers, you deserve to know that your best interests are protected, and at Lenda, we exist to protect your most important financial investment: Your Home. Our mission is to Reimagine Homeownership, Starting With Home Finance.
Please join us in reimagining homeownership.
