Not All Partners Are Created Equal
FirstClose personally takes the time to understand the challenges lenders are facing and works tirelessly to provide solutions that exceed lender's particular needs. Working cooperatively with FirstClose's business partners, they has pioneered new ways to deliver property and borrower data intelligence that is easier and faster to integrate and maintain. This relationship allows FirstClose to apply their deep understanding of lending with advanced analytics, data validation, and vendor management to intelligently select processes and providers.
FirstClose has a national reputation for delivering amazing property and borrower data intelligence and expertise instead of just a report. As a trusted partner, FirstClose delivers accelerated property and borrower data intelligence, minimizes risks, and reduces costs so that lenders can focus on their business and their bottom line. FirstClose is an independent, American-owned company.
By consolidating vendors and products on one platform, FirstClose makes it easy to identify and repair the gaps where lender profits can be maximized. FirstClose evaluates where vendors are underperforming and provides instant options that are a better fit. This allows lenders to speed up turn-times, reduce origination costs, and increase overall productivity. With the flexibility of the FirstClose platform, coupled with the FirstClose Master Service Agreement, lenders can easily swap providers with a click of a button— no new vendor contract negotiations, no vetting, no minimums, and no hassles.Click here to see our integration flyer.
FirstClose is proud of its strategic partnership with MeridianLink (formerly CRIF Lending Solutions). ACTion customers have the ability to order any service from almost any vendor in the real estate settlement services industry, including local appraisers and local title companies, all through the new ACTion and LoanCenter loan origination systems and integrations with FirstClose. Duplicate data entry is completely eliminated on the front end and when the reports are returned to ACTion, PDF copies of the report and data seamlessly populate flood, valuation, and title fields including legal descriptions, vesting information, flood with HMDA data, valuation data, and more.Click here to see our integration flyer:

Client | Turn-time has significantly reduced over the year. I believe it’s dropped almost seven days, so it’s been a pretty big gain from that. We’ve been able to reduce our days-to-close roughly from 40 days down to about 30 days.Josh Hurley, Lending Supervisor, Umpqua Bank
