SAN FRANCISCO – Radius, the tech-enabled brokerage, today announced it has launched a mortgage brokerage in California. The mortgage launch comes on the heels of the company’s $14 million Series A fundraising and recent expansion to Texas, Florida, and Washington.
Radius is a full-service, modern brokerage that provides real estate professionals and their teams with the support and tools needed to grow their business — with a simplified and modest flat fee commission structure. The brokerage empowers entrepreneurial real estate professionals with integrated technology, mentorship, recruiting, financial services, and marketing resources to build and amplify their own brand.
With the addition of a mortgage brokerage, Radius agents and their clients in California will have access to a more seamless and transparent lending experience. With access to real-time status updates and critical documents in their client dashboards, Radius agents will be able to provide quality information about the lending process to their clients — while being supported by a dedicated team. Radius’ mortgage arm will be led by Director of Mortgage Michael Bardales, a 20-year veteran of California lending, and Senior Lending Manager Grace Davis, a 17-year real estate veteran and top lending officer in the state.
“We’re building Radius Mortgage from the ground up to be a premier lender in California,” said Sam Kasle, Radius’ Chief Revenue Officer. “For far too long, the lending process has been frustrating and burdensome for agents and their clients alike. By keeping cost structures low and bringing transparency to the entire lending process, we hope to help real estate professionals deliver a better client experience and grow their businesses.”
Dedicated to developing the whole agent, Radius helped real estate professionals and their teams close more than $400 million in sales in the first quarter of 2022, while the referral network has generated $25 billion in referral commissions in the last three years. The company has doubled revenue in the last five months and seen 300 percent revenue growth year-over-year.
Radius now operates in California, Colorado, Georgia, Oregon, Texas, Florida, and Washington. Building on its real estate social network of more than 85,000 agents nationwide, Radius plans to further expand across the U.S. by the end of the year.
