Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Long & Foster Companies, has selected Encompass ® from Ellie Mae ® (NYSE: ELLI), a leading provider of enterprise level, on-demand automated solutions for the residential mortgage industry, as its mortgage loan management solution.
Originally formed as a joint venture between Long & Foster and Wells Fargo Ventures, this full-service mortgage banker funded $3.6 billion in volume in 2012. Now operating as Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC, the company began serving clients across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, as well as in the Carolinas, on Jan. 2, 2014.

In addition, Prosperity Home Mortgage further customized Encompass by creating a tool that automatically selects the best available mortgage insurance solution based on loan type and borrower needs. “With all the new rules coming into effect in 2014, lenders need to be certain they are compliant,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “Ellie Mae’s new comprehensive ATR/QM solution built into Encompass helps automate the process and deliver improved efficiency, loan quality and compliance.”
