Nonbank Homebridge Financial Services is narrowing its focus on wholesale lending after selling its retail division to CMG Mortgage.
CMG has purchased Homebridge’s retail branch network and a chunk of its mortgage servicing portfolio for an undisclosed sum. In a statement, CMG said the deal “significantly increases the footprint of CMG’s retail division, further solidifying its position as one of the nation’s largest mortgage banks.”
“We are thrilled to add the highly successful origination team at Homebridge to our own highly successful retail team at CMG,” said Christopher George, chief executive officer of CMG. “From our shared heritage as privately held mortgage companies to our common focus on excellence for our customers and our employees, I am certain that together we will create meaningful opportunities for innovation and growth.”
