History of PMR
Premier Mortgage Resources (PMR) has been helping customers achieve the dream of homeownership since 1991. With 31 licensed locations west of the Mississippi and staffed by over 120 loan officers, PMR is a privately held mortgage bank that underwrites directly to agency guidelines. We offer a full menu of mortgage products and are delegated to underwrite conventional, FHA, VA, USDA, and several state bond programs. In addition, we have a full Reverse Mortgage Banking division as well as many Jumbo outlets.
We are licensed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. Founded by Greg Mirecki and Rich Forde and originally part of larger nationwide company, Mirecki and Forde operated Premier successfully for nearly 10 years. Through a series of mergers and acquisitions the name was shelved, but the operations and several of the offices continued to operate until 2005. In 2005, Mirecki and Forde reactivated the name, capitalized the company, and formed Premier Mortgage Resources, LLC in Portland, Oregon. Later that year, Mark Feller joined Premier as a partner.
The company has continued to grow and in recent years, added Cory Swain as a Managing Partner. All of the Premier partners have substantial experience in mortgage lending, from originating to management and operations. (Partner Messages)
Our philosophy is centered on operational excellence. To ensure we can meet the demands of the loan officers we serve and provide quick turn times, we intentionally over staff/hire in our underwriting, processing and closing departments. We have a hard-working, knowledgeable operations team with an average tenure of over 25 years – many have worked together for over a decade. We operate in a transparent system with underwriters who make themselves available to help loan officers work through difficult transactions.
Above all, PMR centers on how we can make the dream of home ownership a reality for our customers! This means providing the right program for each of our customers and providing timely and accurate service levels. We are focused on your home ownership.
At PMR, we are determined to provide the best customer service possible, the best mortgage programs available, and competitive rates to all of our customers. We empower our employees with the tools and resources to make every mortgage transaction as smooth as possible. As we grow, we actively search out better programs, better resources, and streamline solutions to serve our customers, employees, and referral partners.
