From our establishment in 2008, the principal vision of Movement Mortgage has been to be the largest privately held mortgage bank in the country within ten years. Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated team, as well as the great relationships we’ve built within the real estate community, we plan on meeting that goal sooner than anyone could have anticipated. In just over four years, we have grown from a business of only eight employees to a company of nearly 1,000 dedicated mortgage professionals focused on providing the most personalized and most streamlined mortgage experience in the industry. This dedication earned Movement, formerly New American Mortgage, the honor of being named 2012’s fastest growing mortgage bank in the country by Inc. Magazine. In 2013 we are prepared to hire more professionals and close more loans than we have in the last three years combined, all while remaining dedicated to our mission of being the premier REALTOR®-centric mortgage bank. At Movement, it is important to us that we focus on building a company that is tailored to best serve any and all REALTOR® communities across the United States.
We realize that being named the fastest growing mortgage bank in our industry isn’t enough. We must remain intently focused on our vision to be number one. To do so, we must be constantly changing, constantly evolving, constantly analyzing the mortgage market, and constantly anticipating the needs of the REALTORS® we work alongside. In short, we must be constantly on the move.
Our focus on growth is not confined solely to our business. We realize that to grow professionally we must also grow personally. Therefore, we are committed to actively loving and caring for one another in all walks of life. Movement Mortgage was founded with a clear vision and a strong commitment to the values of God, family, community, and business. It is also our belief that we are called to bring life, light, and hope to the various communities of which we are privileged to be a part. In order to more substantially serve locally, as well as nationally, Casey Crawford and Toby Harris, the owners of Movement Mortgage, created Movement Foundation in 2011. Over the last two years, Movement Foundation has donated $3.2 million to churches and ministry partners, as well as donating time and energy to initiatives like our Christmas “bulging bundles” and organizations like Toys for Tots.
Our love and care for others is directed as much within our walls as it is outside of them. As a result, in 2013, Casey and Toby also established the “Love Works Fund.” The Fund’s purpose is to financially support employees in times of great need. Our desire is to work together to meet the needs of our employees and their fellow team members. For we believe that "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”
