The original idea for BeSmartee was founded in 2007 during the onset of the mortgage crisis. Husband and wife entrepreneurs Tim & Veronica worked in the industry and received hundreds of calls from borrowers, each sharing horrific stories of their mortgage experiences, and why they were now going to lose their homes of 5, 10 and even 30 years.
They reached out to friend and client Arvin, who explained to them how the old and traditional mortgage process worked. Wanting to change the industry and make it better for borrowers, together they dreamt of a new way for people to get a mortgage, a way that makes getting a home loan easy, fast and transparent.
At that moment BeSmartee was born. But, it wasn't until 2014 that they had the resources and industry support to bring BeSmartee to life.
Since 2014, the team at BeSmartee has worked tirelessly trying to change an old industry. First, they had to attract banks and mortgage lenders, and convince them that BeSmartee's vision was possible. Then, they had to convince and partner with technology, insurance, data and other industry companies required to bring BeSmartee to life.
Along the way, not everyone wanted to help change the industry. Most just wanted to keep business being done the old traditional way. But, persistence paid off...after years of development and hundreds of pitches, today BeSmartee is the first and only mortgage marketplace to completely change the mortgage industry.
We hope you enjoy what we've built, and most importantly, we hope BeSmartee's new mortgage process makes the process of buying or refinancing your home easier, faster and more transparent.
