Oklahoma City, OK — a la mode announced today that SFREP (Software for Real Estate Professionals) has connected their appraisers to Mercury Network for streamlined, compliant appraisal delivery. With this connection appraisers using SFREP’s formfilling software, Appraise-It, are now directly connected to the nation's largest lenders and appraisal management companies (AMCs) for no-hassle delivery of UAD-compliant, Native XML appraisal reports.
SFREP appraisers will now be able to accept and deliver appraisal orders from Mercury Network’s lender and AMC clients using a MercuryDirect plugin, including large volume appraisal buyers such as AppraisalPort, LSI, CoreLogic, StreetLinks, Axios, Clear Capital, JVI, and more. SFREP appraisers will now have the same class-leading technology as a la mode’s appraiser clients, ensuring UAD-compliant and error-free final appraisal report delivery, eliminating delays and errors for lenders and AMCs as they submit loan files to the GSEs.
“We welcome SFREP appraisers to Mercury Network and look forward to providing their appraisers with a direct connection to the largest lenders and AMCs in the business”, said Jennifer Miller, EVP of Products for a la mode’s Mortgage Solutions Division. “SFREP’s commitment to providing their appraiser clients with the best workflow tools so they’re more profitable and efficient should be applauded.”
SFREP CEO, R. Wayne Pugh, MAI, CRE added, “Our plugin with Mercury Network connects our appraisers to the largest appraisal vendor management platform, setting them up for success as other appraisers are struggling with compliant report delivery. We’ve enabled SFREP appraisers to better satisfy their current and future clients. We’re all faced with the build versus buy dilemma. We’re confident in our choice of a la mode as a vendor.”
a la mode's Mercury Network is the nation's premiere Vendor Management Platform in the appraisal and BPO industries, offering both interfaceless "black box" MercuryDirect services and APIs, as well as “turn key” MercuryManaged web front ends for use by loan officers and compliance staff. It’s used in both capacities by a lengthy roster of the nation's largest lenders and AMCs, as well as by numerous community banks, credit unions, wholesale and correspondent lenders, and mortgage brokers, simplifying full compliance with appraisal independence standards and banking security regulations. It’s been used by more than 200,000 mortgage professionals since 2002 to automate the full “round trip” of tens of millions of appraisals. For more information, visit www.MercuryVMP.com.
