And the Winner Is: Popular Mortgage pays forward the “Dream Big, Win Tiny” Sweepstakes prize
The “Dream Big, Win Tiny” campaign and sweepstakes was created for Ellie Mae customers, prospective customers and partners to demonstrate how they are personally helping power the American Dream of homeownership through their use of digital mortgage technologies.
We’re proud to announce that Popular Mortgage has been named the 2018 Dream Big, Win Tiny Sweepstakes winner. Their submission told the story of how they used Encompass to help thousands of families in Puerto Rico rebuild their homes or move to safer homes in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Upon notification of their win, the Popular Mortgage team decided to “pay it forward,” and will have a $15,000 donation made on their behalf to Habitat for Humanity of Puerto Rico. Ellie Mae will match this donation, sending a total of $30,000 to Habitat for Humanity for ongoing local hurricane relief efforts.
Popular Mortgage is a Division of Banco Popular de Puerto Rico, and is the leader in mortgage originations in the island. Banco Popular is also the primary mortgage servicer on the island, and is dedicated to continuing rebuilding efforts in Puerto Rico.
“Popular Mortgage has been very committed to reconstructing homes and assisting our customers during the aftermath of Hurricane Maria,” said Silvio López, Division Manager of Popular Mortgage. “Ellie Mae’s Encompass facilitated the loan process for us. Whether speeding through the home purchase process or assisting homeowners as they rebuild, the technology let us work faster, smarter and more efficiently.”
The Ellie Mae team is honored to partner with Popular Mortgage in its ongoing relief efforts, through a matching donation, and enthusiastically supports their efforts to rebuild local communities in Puerto Rico.
“We congratulate Silvio and the entire Banco Popular team,” said Jonathan Corr, President and CEO of Ellie Mae. “The Dream Big, Win Tiny campaign brought in so many great stories of how Ellie Mae customers and partners are leveraging digital mortgage solutions to support the American Dream of homeownership. The Banco Popular team embodies the spirit of the campaign, and our core value of giving back to the community. We’re so thrilled to be able to match the donation to Habitat for Humanity, and provide additional aid to the people of Puerto Rico.”
