JENKS, Okla., June 22, 2018 – Gateway Mortgage Group, founded by Kevin Stitt, announced that it now serves more than 100,000 customers across the nation. With this growth, Gateway’s servicing portfolio experienced a 32 percent year-over-year growth rate accumulating to more than $16.6 billion at the end of May. Despite lower loan origination volumes across the entire industry, the company’s loan volume grew to more than $2.4 billion for the same period ending May 31, indicating a 16 percent year-over-year growth rate.

Over the past year, Gateway has opened multiple new Mortgage Centers, extending its footprint to include cities such as Las Vegas and Sequim, Wash. The company also became licensed in Idaho, Nevada and North Dakota.

“At Gateway, our commitment to the families and customers that we serve drives us to challenge ourselves,” said Kevin Stitt, CEO at Gateway. “As we continue to grow and expand, we focus on our core values and stay true to our roots—empowering the American dream of homeownership and giving back to our communities as well as those in need. We look forward to the future as we continue to partner with more customers and communities across the nation.”
