JENKS, Okla., July 19, 2018 – Gateway Mortgage Group, founded by Kevin Stitt, announces the launch of LinkStep, its new web-based digital mortgage experience that dramatically simplifies the home buying process. LinkStep is designed to enhance the Gateway Experience, a service-intensive partnership between the homebuyer, real estate agent and the loan officer.
Additionally, Gateway has launched a new website at www.gatewayloan.com, further enhancing the experience for visitors, including current and prospective borrowers. With a more streamlined look and feel, visitors can more easily search for a Mortgage Center or loan originator near them. The website, which is integrated with Zillow and Facebook, also features educational content, offering tips and best practices to help individuals and families achieve homeownership.
“The Gateway Experience has always been what has set us apart,” said Gateway marketing executive Rob Rothrock. “LinkStep is a new technology that is designed to empower the interpersonal relationship between the customer and loan officer to make it even stronger.”
Gateway’s more than 500 licensed originators serve as stewards and confidants in the home loan application and closing process. The LinkStep interactive tool enables loan officers to guide clients through the process in a more streamlined fashion, making home buying easier to understand than ever before. LinkStep is accessible through any web browser across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, and provides a secure link to many banks and investment companies, as well as all four major payroll providers.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer LinkStep to our customers,” said Kevin Stitt, Chief Executive Officer at Gateway. “We’ve utilized state-of-the-art technology to produce a more transparent experience with a home-buying tool that is not just easy to use, but also incredibly secure.”
LinkStep offers seamless document uploads that are more secure than email, fax or even postal couriers. Its secure technology highlights pending and completed action items, and automated communication leads prospective homeowners through the application and documentation stages, completely removing stress from the equation and toward their ultimate goal: homeownership.
