Relaunched last June after a three-year hiatus, Interfirst Mortgage Co. promoted Dhaval Patel to Senior Vice President, Consumer Direct Production. Patel joined the company in January 2020 as vice president of that segment. Prior to joining Interfirst, Patel was the division credit manager at Carrington Holding Co. and held executive positions at Azure Knowledge Corp. and Citizen Financial Mortgage Corp. inside. This is the first time I have trusted a company enough to recommend its products to my family, friends and neighbors, ”said Patel in an announcement about the promotion. "This speaks to the strong belief I have in the culture and corporate vision of Interfirst."
Licensed in 19 states, the company is headquartered in Chicago, where Patel expects to grow its team of originators from 120 loan officers to 250. Interfirst was founded in 2001 and left the origination market in 2017, citing the oversaturation and overvaluation of the market.
