DENVER - Loanmining.com announced a joint venture agreement with First United Mortgage Bank Inc. that will enable Loanmining.com to underwrite and service loans in 35 states.
First United, a subsidiary of CFI Mortgage Inc., agreed to process and close Loanmining.com's Internet and conventional originations. The venture plans to use initial warehouse lines of $125 million.
Loanmining.com, a subsidiary of North Lily Mining Co., was created when the majority shareholders of North Lily - Stephen E. Flechner and Gene Webb - led a conversion of the 84-year-old mining company into a mortgage lender. They said they plan to combine a brick-and-mortar branch network with telephone and Internet sales and eventually to offer credit cards, insurance, auto loans, and home equity loans.
