FORT LAUDERDALE, FL — Movement Mortgage, a national top 10 retail mortgage lender, is excited to announce the addition of David Sheir and the Florida Lending Group team to the South Florida market.
With over 50 years of combined experience in home financing, the Florida Lending Group, powered by Movement Mortgage and led by Area Branch Leader David Sheir (NMLS #367620), has approximately $200 million in volume. Prior to joining Movement, Sheir led teams at Cornerstone Home Lending, Guaranteed Rate and Bank of America. At Movement, Sheir’s leadership will be augmented by Michele Smith (NMLS #2022935), who herself has over 30 years of experience in the mortgage industry.
Sheir described his team’s approach to long-term success in Southern Florida and why joining forces with Movement feels like the logical next step. “The people, the products and the speed are what attracted us — in that order,” said Sheir. “Speed is important. With the South Florida market having such low inventory, it’s imperative that buyers present themselves as the absolute most qualified borrower. The Florida Lending Group powered by Movement Mortgage is in the envious position of being able to act quicker, faster and smarter so that we can help our buyers better compete.”
“Our borrowers need to move fast and so do we,” added Smith. “David and I put our heads together to develop the best team to support our clients, and now with the power of Movement Mortgage, we can service more clients with more options and programs through a more efficient process.”
Dedicated to supporting local Realtors and clients in the mortgage process from beginning to end, the Florida Lending Group powered by Movement Mortgage team works tirelessly to ensure a successful, timely closing. Sheir and Smith share the belief that the team’s end goal is a happy homebuyer who is so pleased with the professional and personal service they receive that they, in turn, tell their friends and family.
“We are thrilled that the Florida Lending Group team, headed by David Sheir, has joined forces with Movement Mortgage in South Florida,” said Regional Director Jonathan Garrick. “To bring on a team of this size, where each one is such a great culture fit for our organization, is something that will allow us to continue telling our story in the marketplace. That’s in addition to helping Loan Officers and Realtors grow their business to levels they have never experienced before.”
