In Elma, N.Y., a new facility being opened by Seneca Mortgage Servicing LLC will create room for an additional 250 employees, a June 2 statement said. Seneca, which already has a staff of 300, plans to complete the hirings over five years.

A rush of new Realtor commitments has prompted Kevin Leonard to launch a recruiting campaign for loan originators in Orange County, Calif. Leonard, who claims to have been the “the top producing loan officer in the country,” said in an announcement Friday that his team recently established a partnership with “Orange County real estate agent banker.”
But job openings are only for the best qualified mortgage professionals, the statement said. For those who make it, competitive pay and good healthcare benefits await them.
Leonard is also recruiting entire branches.
“The mortgage professional is also promoting mortgage branch opportunities that are available for small groups of loan officers doing some type of reasonable loan volume per month,” the statement said. “Some of these mortgage branches may be looking to move from broker to banker, and others may not like the lender that they currently work for varies reasons.
“Whichever the case, Kevin Leonard says they have plenty of great mortgage bankers looking to facilitate their loan production volume.”
