SEATTLE, Washington — Movement Mortgage, the nation’s sixth-largest retail mortgage lender, has hired Lee Aldrich to provide home-financing loans to buyers in the Pacific Northwest, specifically Seattle and its immediate surroundings.
Aldrich (NMLS #325834) joined the company after 24 years in the mortgage industry. Before coming to Movement, Aldrich held Branch Manager positions at Guaranteed Rate, Eagle Home Mortgage, and Stearns Lending, all in Minnesota. He started his home financing career as a Mortgage Loan Originator straight out of high school.
“I’ll miss the team I worked with back in the Midwest, but I’m excited to be moving to Seattle,” said Aldrich.” I look forward to using my experience to help improve the local team to have a more significant positive impact on families during one of the most important transactions of their lives.”
“We’re excited to have Lee join the Movement family here in Seattle,” said Ryan Hills. Regional Director of the Pacific Mountain Region (NMLS # 332336). “Back in Minnesota, he was top five statewide in units and top ten in volume. We know he’ll crush it here as well.”
“I love the vision of doing more than just mortgages,” Aldrich said about the Movement mission. “Most important to me is to give back to underserved communities, first responders, and the military. It’s nice to see that Movement has great programs for those buyers.”
When not helping prospective homeowners get the financing they need, Aldrich enjoys watching football and four-wheeling with his family, which fittingly includes three boys.
