By utilizing the latest technology, combined with aggregated volume from its national client base, FirstClose is able to offer customized solutions which increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and ultimately help lenders close more loans. FirstClose services over 250 Banks and Credit Unions while processing hundreds of thousands of transactions per year.

Our Mission

The FirstClose mission is to provide the most comprehensive mortgage settlement solutions — because choice matters. The company’s mission is to increase profitability and reduce cost for mortgage lenders. FirstClose makes this possible through offering systems and relationships that enable lenders to more effectively assist lender’s borrowers, reduce closing costs, and ultimately shorten closing times. FirstClose makes every effort to listen closely to their customers and partners while demonstrating a genuine demeanor in their communication. FirstClose aims to positively delight and amaze their customers with service and support that is second to none.

FirstClose embodies the entrepreneurial yet laid-back attitude of Austin, TX. The city is known for boots and barbecue, but it’s also known for innovative companies and cutting-edge software. The company offices are north and west of downtown, not too far from the lake and tucked within rolling hills. The FirstClose team consists of industry veterans, savvy developers, and a dedicated operations team all pushing to create a product that will delight customers and make their jobs easier.
