The first CRM technology built specifically for mortgage and real estate makes the list.

DENVER, March 12, 2021 -- Usherpa, the real estate and mortgage industry’s original enterprise CRM technology, announced today that the company has been named to the prestigious HousingWire 2021 Tech100 listing of the most innovative mortgage technology companies. The HW Tech100 is the only program highlighting tech innovation that captures the entire U.S. housing economy, spanning real estate to mortgage lending, servicing, and investments. Usherpa is the only company to make both real estate and mortgage lending lists.

“Our goal from the beginning was to be the universal guide to painless CRM, sales and marketing automation for the housing industry. It is very gratifying to see that the editors at HousingWire realize we have achieved that goal,” said Dan Harrington, CEO of Usherpa. “Because we integrate so seamlessly with the technology in use by the majority of loan originators today, many are unaware that we founded the mortgage and real estate CRM category back in the mid-90s. We are very proud to be recognized for the important role we continue to play in this industry.”

“After the uncertainty and unpredictability of last year, we expected a greater adoption of technology. However, these 100 real estate and mortgage companies took digital disruption to a whole new level and propelled a complete digital revolution, leaving a digital legacy that will impact borrowers, clients and companies for years to come,” said Brena Nath, HousingWire’s HW+ Managing Editor. ”Knowing what these companies were able to navigate and overcome, we’re excited to announce this year’s list of the most innovative technology companies serving the mortgage and real estate industries.”

When Harrington founded the company in 1995, he was a Loan Officer in search of a better tool for marketing home loans. He developed a tool that would allow him to stay connected with his closed clients so they would remember to refer him and come back when they needed a mortgage. It also provided his Realtors with information they could use to sell homes, so they’d think of him when referring buyers.

Today, Usherpa has evolved into the industry’s most sophisticated, cloud-based CRM/Marketing Automation system. Now referred to as Relationship Engagement, the company’s software has helped thousands of Loan Officers stay connected with partners and clients. These LO’s have helped hundreds of thousands of borrowers fulfill their dreams of homeownership.

“I’ve been involved in choosing Tech100 winners since we started the program in 2014, and every year it manages to get more competitive,” HousingWire Editor and Chief Sarah Wheeler said. “These companies are truly leading the way to a more innovative housing market!”
