Sun West Mortgage Company, Inc. is a mortgage company for residential and commercial real estate.
Founded in 1980 in Cerritos, California, as one of the United States first mortgage banks, the company offers several forms of assistance programs, including: unemployment assistance, mortgage reinstatement programs, principal reductions and transition assistance programs, to their customers.
When Sun West Mortgage made a transition from strictly wholesale to retail lending service products, it made Sun West one of only two major lenders to offer retail reverse mortgage services during at the time of the transition.
Sun West Mortgage also opened a second headquarters in Morris County New Jersey, as well as satellite offices around the east coast to provide loan service to a part of the country that had not yet recovered from the 2007 Financial Crisis.
Sun West also networked with local groups, like American Assist, consolidating services to become an institution capable of servicing the full financial needs of their clients. In 2018 Sun West Mortgage started business in the retail sector as a newly formed DBA named, Mortgage Possible.
Sun West Mortgage also partnered with the United States Department of Veteran affairs allowing eligible service members to be guaranteed a loan as well as borrow a greater percent against their home's value and allowing all loans to be insured by the United States government against default.
This partnership led Sun West Mortgage to one of the 300 lenders serving veterans. In order to further expansion, Sun West Mortgage hired Andrew Platt as senior managing director.
