Local lenders move to CrossCountry and Compass snags Hinsdale top producer

by Meg White

CrossCountry Mortgage acquires two Chicago-based companies

As of this week, Chicago-based bemortgage and PERL Mortgage, Inc. have now officially joined up with CrossCountry Mortgage, Inc., a nationwide mortgage lender based in Brecksville, Ohio. 

For bemortgage, the change has been in the works for awhile; the company became a division of CrossCountry last October. PERL Mortgage is a more recent addition and officially joined CrossCountry Mortgage in March 2019. 

Beth Keckley, chief marketing officer for CrossCountry, noted that the company identified the two Chicago lenders as leaders in terms of production and customer service. “It’s no surprise that CrossCountry Mortgage was attracted to the two midwestern lenders, as they both not only harbor top producers in the industry, but also never forget what matters most: the customer,” she said. “This will inevitably strengthen our position across the country.”

Hinsdale top producer joins Compass

On July 1, Compass announced that Kris Berger would be joining the company as a real estate broker. Most recently with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group, Berger ranked No. 8 in terms of sales volume on the most recent release of Chicago Agent magazine’s quarterly Real Data list for DuPage County. Compass’ release on the move stated that she now ranks No. 5 overall among the company’s Chicago agents and noted that, in the last 12 months, Berger has culminated $60 million in production. 

“The technology and the innovative spirit of Compass is going to be a great addition to my business,” Berger said in the release. “It’s exciting to know that all of my listings are going to be viewed through a more streamlined, modern lens.”
