Our Story: More than What's in our Name—''Mortgage Specialists''

    Sure, we're good at what we do and are a leader in the mortgage industry. But there's more. There's a story behind Silverton Mortgage Specialists.

    We're building one of the best, most stable mortgage lending businesses around. But, we'll never be a company that counts our success based on the dots on a map representing offices across the country. We count our success by what we give back to our communities. We count our success one loan, one happy customer, one family in a home at a time.

    The Silverton Story – Profitability and Compassion

    Silverton was built on a vision with two components most think are incongruous: profitability and compassion.

    Silverton was started by Josh Moffitt who wanted to follow in the footsteps of his family. His great-grandfather, grandfather, grandmother, mother, and uncle were role models in the business world as well as in their community. He learned through their actions that success does not have to be at the expense of compassion.

    He realized that to be successful, whether in business or in the community, it takes hard work and lots of it. You have to earn the respect and trust of those with whom you work and those whom you serve. He learned to be true to the vision of what your business can and should be. And he discovered an important lesson: sharing your success with your family and community makes it all the sweeter.

    It was in this spirit that Silverton was conceived and we remain committed to this vision as we continue to grow.
