PHILADELPHIA, March 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Buoyed by the momentum of its second record month for loans locked in the last three months, UMortgage is delighted to announce the addition of Ravi Patel and his team to the growing mortgage platform.
Previously, as Senior Vice President of Mortgage Lending at Guaranteed Rate, he and his team displayed an exceptional ability to grow despite market headwinds. Last year, they closed more than 250 loans and increased their purchase volume by 20% from 2021—the kind of growth that Patel will look to build upon with the resources available with the UMortgage platform.
“The mindset of those at UMortgage is what really convinced me to join the platform,” said Patel. “They are currently a beacon of light in a mortgage industry that’s been dim for the last couple years. I’m incredibly excited to continue to grow my team and partner with Justin Allen and Shane Faherty. Together, we’re going to continue to create a better mortgage experience for our clients and referral partners.”
The addition of Patel and his team—including David Behymer, Tony Piper, and Sydney Wallace—is another burst of momentum in what has been a remarkable period of growth for the UMortgage platform. Patel is another noteworthy name on a list of loan originators who have joined since the start of the year.
Those heavy hitters have made an immediate impact since joining UMortgage, with the platform posting a record month for funded loans in December 2022, then re-setting that record in February 2023.
“We’re very excited to welcome Ravi to our UMortgage family,” said Anthony Casa, President & CEO of UMortgage. “Winners in this industry want to join our platform because we’re identifying the acute pain points of loan originators of different backgrounds—whether that be a retail shop or their own brokerage—and providing value-based solutions.”
The momentum seen at UMortgage in Q1 of 2023 is just the start for the mortgage platform. If you’d like to learn how UMortgage equips loan originators with the tools to scale their business, sign up for Loan Originators Powered by UMortgage hosted Wednesdays at 2pm ET.

SVB Financial faced a perfect storm, but there were plenty of other banks with high levels of unrealized securities losses as of Dec. 31.
Robert Kiyosaki, who originally forecasted the Lehman 2008 crisis, predicts the next bank to collapse in the Silicon Valley Bank contagion will be Credit Suisse.
Last week ended with the worst day for bank stocks since the financial crisis of 2008. The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, the country’s 16th largest banking firm and the lender of first resort for the start-ups of California’s tech world, has sparked fears of a larger bank run, or even a repeat of the systemic financial troubles. That’s the worst-case worries – but according to Goldman Sachs’ chief credit strategist, Lotfi Karoui, these fears may be overblown. “We think the risk of contagion f

When billionaires jump on the same trend, it’s important for investors to take notice. The pieces often don’t come together immediately, but these investors have millions of dollars in resources dedicated to getting the most up-to-date information as quickly as possible. They might see trends months in advance that others might not notice until it’s too late.

As fear ripples through the banking industry, Charles Schwab was swept into the mess last week and continued to sink Monday. The stock is now down around 30% for the past few days and around 35% for the year, over concerns of mark-to-market losses on its held-to-maturity bond portfolio. Schwab has faced a steady flight of cash from accounts in search of higher returns in money markets and other instruments, which it calls cash sorting.
Looks like the financial stock market freakout is taking down more than just regional banks. Charles Schwab is feeling the heat too.
In the wake of last week’s bank collapse – the fall of Silicon Valley Bank, and the related collapses of the crypto-centered Silvergate and Signature banks – there’s been a swirl of discussion around fractional reserves and liquidity coverage ratios (LCRs). And rightly so, because at bottom, these banks collapsed due to a lack of liquid assets. In sort, these banks did not have enough liquidity to cover severe funding outflows. The affected banks, especially SVB, were hit by a run – that is, dep
