Our Social Impact Mission
Because Mortgage On A Mission is a small business, and we don’t have outside owners or investors, we are free to pursue goals other than making the most money. As a company with a social impact mission, our goals are to:
1) Educate the public and our clients about the details of home ownership and mortgage financing, to help people avoid high-cost loans and help them get the highest-quality customer service.
2) Educate those working within our industry, including real estate agents and other mortgage brokers and loan officers, about the problems in our industry and ways we can do better to serve our communities.
3) Serve the mortgage needs of 40-50 Texas families each year, and contribute a portion of our funds from each loan to charitable programs that help us further our other social impact goals.
Respect People’s Time
Our Best Price Guarantee shows our lender pricing 24/7. Not enough home buyers are comparing lender offers, so we hope to educate the public about the need to compare offers. When a Texas family pays too much for their loan, that’s less money available to good in our communities. Mortgage On A Mission is also accredited by the Better Business Bureau. If you ever have a complaint regarding our services, we will resolve your complaint. As a small business, we value our reputation and we rely on your client’s satisfaction.
Help Our Community
In our 2020/2021 grant cycle, we supported the work of the Texas Homeless Network, which helps coordinate a state-wide effort to work with families experiencing homelessness. During this time, I learned that mental illness is a contributing factor to homelessness, and that mental illness often begins in childhood. In our 2021/2022 grant cycle, we will refocus our support to helping elementary and middle schools in Texas plant Monarch butterfly gardens. Research shows that time spent in nature is good for mental health. Our giving supports the Native Plant Society of Texas and the work they are already doing.
Get Paid for Good Work
We charge no application fees, and we don’t recommend working with a lender who does. If we believe the loan you are considering is not right for you, we will tell you.
We’re not a bank, so we don’t have sales quotas to reach. We can and will give you the best advice, and we appreciate your referral of friends and neighbors.
WFAA did a story about fair lending in Dallas, and they reached out to me for a few comments. Watch and read that story here.
Native Plant Society of Texas
Building on our support of the Texas Homeless Network, and realizing that mental illness contributes to homelessness and that illness often begins in childhood, we are starting our next grant cycle for 2022. Next year, our giving will support the Native Plant Society of Texas to help Texas elementary and middle schools install Monarch butterfly gardens on campus. Not only will these gardens provide much-needed habitat for the endangered Monarch, but also bring children closer to nature, and hopefully provide benefit to those children going through a mental health crisis.
Texas Homelesss Network
In 2020/2021, you helped us donate over $2500 to the Texas Homeless Network, an organization that believes Texans can and will end homelessness together. Over 25,000 Texans experience homelessness, and we remember that after 2008, many families lost their home to an illegal foreclosure and had nowhere else to go. We believe that everyone deserves a place to call home, and that each of us can do our small part to help out. Especially those of us in the mortgage industry. We will be a sponsor at the 2022 THN annual conference in Austin. See you soon!
