Why UWM?

The UWM Story

Since 1986

In business for over 30 years, UWM has become one of the largest, fastest growing wholesale lenders in the United States. We provide superior client service to our partners in all 50 states—and have no plans of slowing down.

Coached Like a Team

Led by President/CEO Mat Ishbia, UWM is run like no other mortgage lender in the market today. As a former Michigan State basketball player under legendary coach Tom Izzo, Mat learned invaluable lessons on the court that he has brought to the team at UWM. Mat has instilled the sales team with an attitude focused on championing our clients, a desire to make every loan a success, and the ambition to work harder and be better than the day before. Having learned the business from the ground up as an Account Executive, he understands that we can do more than just underwrite loans. As a team, we can be the backroom for our clients and help them grow their business.

Client Service First

Based on a business model that puts our partners first, UWM has seen significant growth in the last few years, most recently becoming the number one wholesale lender in the country in origination volume. We believe in not just guiding a loan through the process, but in truly helping our clients, growing their business, and giving them tools they can use to become successful. We are constantly innovating and rolling out new products, resources, and solutions that assist Brokers and further cement our commitment to partnership. At UWM, we’ve always believed in being relationship-driven—not transaction-driven—and we will continue to do so for the next 25 years and beyond!

"The first loan I did with UWM, the process was amazing and the whole team did an awesome job! It felt like the old days of lending and I know I wowed some new clients—thank you!" - Kimberly Limes, Mortgage Manager
