MSA for Employers
When it comes to Mortgage Banking, the only constant is CHANGE. Our industry is changing on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis. With more and more companies closing their doors, it’s easy to get caught up in the onslaught of individuals suddenly on the job market. It is not uncommon for employers to recieve over 300 resumes in response to one job posting. Trying to sift through each one and pull the truly qualified candidates out can be a daunting task.

MSA for Candidates
In this current climate of uncertainty within our industry, it is now more critical than ever to choose your employer wisely. Each time you interview with a company, you should have “The Four Signs of a Stable Lender” checklist with you. The criteria that made an employer a safe bet a year ago may not be valid in today’s market.
While checking our new opportunities can be exciting, it can also be a little scary in today's environment. The players have changed and so have the rules. It has historically been a "Buyer's Market" with regard to seeking employment - a good candidate could basically write his own ticket and pick and choose where he wanted to work. Not so today. There are literally thousands of exceptional candidates on the market today, often times not by choice. Companies once thought of as rock solid have come crashing down, resulting in massive candidate pools for a limited number of opportunities. You need an edge, a killer resume and an executive search firm marketing your skills to potential employers in order to stand out from the crowd.
Working with a professional recruiter can benefit you in more ways than just getting you in front of the best employers. Statistics have shown that candidates who utilize an executive recruiter to negotiate terms with a new employer recieve higher overall compensation vs. candidates taking on this process themselves.
We welcome the opportunity to review your resume and assist with your career objectives. If you do not have a current resume, please review the Resume section in our Candidate Services area for assistance.
We look forward to working with you!
MSA for Acquisitions
Buyers: While the industry has not been full of good news lately, there is a silver lining for those companies who are financially healthy and in a growth mode. The rapid decline of warehouse facilities has resulted in a tremendous window of opportunity for lenders seeking expansion to their footprint. MSA’s database of companies poised for acquisition, joint venture or investor relationships continues to grow as more and more firms seek solutions.
Whether your objectives include Talent, Corporate or Asset based Acquisitions, let MSA do the leg work for you. After we determine your necessary criteria, we will conduct a local, regional or national search as we represent your firm to potential 'sellers'. We conduct a thorough screening process with each entity so that you are presented with only those opportunities that are going to meet your needs. We uncover opportunites that are not publicized, and upon request, can also approach specific companies about their interest in aligning with your organization.
Sellers: We understand the challenges you are experiencing. Brokers who have been industry leaders are suddenly facing an uncertain future. Mortgage Bankers who have enjoyed years of mutually beneficial relationships with their credit providers are suddenly finding themselves without a warehouse line. Wholesale lenders are being forced to close their doors at an unprecedented rate.
Instead of making difficult announcements to your employees that they will soon be out of a job, why not let MSA explore another option? While we cannot guarantee a solution for every situation, chances are very good that we can minimize your ongoing liabilities and limit the carnage. If your firm has been in business for three years or more, historically profitable and you have a clear understanding of your company's value proposition, we want to talk to you. MSA maintains an active database of companies seeking expansion through acquisition. We will aggressively market your organization to those lenders who may be a good fit and have the financial strength to absorb your firm.
