“Walmart has long been a trusted name for consumers, so seeing the Walmart branch in-store opportunity in West Orange County come to fruition with Family First Funding is an exciting move to connect mortgage lenders and borrowers in the Orlando area,” said Justin Demola, CMB, President, Lenders One. “The physical in-store presence at Walmart allows Lenders One members to connect, face-to-face, with the local community and help them learn about the mortgage process, become mortgage ready and achieve the American Dream of homeownership.”
The objective of this initiative is for Lenders One members to offer a suite of mortgage solutions, including purchase, refinance and home equity lines, to Walmart customers with a strong focus on consumer education, underserved markets and affordable homeownership.
