Melissa Walter has been involved in the mortgage industry since 2004 in MANY facets. She began her mortgage career with Security Financial Enterprises as a licensed mortgage broker and very successfully researched, submitted, processed and closed residential home loans. In 2007, Melissa was presented with an opportunity to become an REO Asset Manager with Ocwen Loan Services (currently Altisource Portfolio Solutions). She managed a nationwide REO portfolio consisting of as many as 250 bank owned assets in which she was responsible for preparing business plans & budgets, listing, marketing, managing, negotiating and approving sales contracts for properties from acquisition to closing. This experience afforded her the opportunity to gain a wealth of knowledge and an expert understanding of the world of bank owned properties. In 2010, Altisource moved their REO operations overseas and Melissa took that opportunity to take a brief hiatus from the working world to be a stay at home mom to her beautiful newborn son.
In 2012, Melissa returned to the mortgage industry as a forensic underwriter with Digital Risk, LLC in Lake Mary, FL. Her responsibilities included reviewing employment, and asset documentation as well as a recalculation & review of income for completeness and accuracy. Completing in-depth forensic underwriting reviews of non-performing conventional loans provided Melissa with a comprehensive understanding of the current lending guidelines. Eventually, Melissa decided to go back to her true passion; originating loans.
In 2014 Melissa joined the Equity Prime team and could not be happier with the excellent teamwork, leadership and level of professionalism the organization has to offer. Through excellent customer service and communication, Melissa makes every effort to take care of each and every client and provide the one on one attention they need to make sure the entire loan process is smooth and successful. It is Melissa’s goal and the company’s goal to ALWAYS give the client a great experience!
