Making Home Loans Painless & Paperless

Did you know that the average office employee uses around 10,000 pieces of paper per year? That’s the equivalent of an entire tree – a tree that could have been left in the forest to help filter pollution and carbon dioxide. That doesn’t even take into consideration the amount of pollutants emitted during the paper making process.

Here in the Northwest, we care about the environment and our trees. As a local mortgage lender, there is no better way that we can go green than by reducing the amount of paper we use during home loan transactions.

Summit Mortgage Corporation is proud to offer the following paperless solutions to our clients in order to help make loan transactions more efficient and reduce our environmental footprint.
