Whether it is a reverse mortgage, refinance or a new purchase we are committed to find the best solution for our clients.

In 2001 Loren partnered with an old friend, to break records in both production and customer service that have helped to launch the company into a national powerhouse among lenders and brokers generating several million dollars a month in volume.  Loren’s career production numbers have exceeded the $100 million mark.  The Loren Riddick Team has nearly a 100% repeat and referral client base that powers this team through even the most turbulent times.  In fact, when most of his competitors were exiting the business, Loren’s Team was expanding.  In August 2009, they opened the Maryville/Alcoa branch with record breaking success.  Loren is committed to a great working environment for both clients and teammates.
