About Franklin American Mortgage Company

Founded in 1994, Franklin American Mortgage Company (FAMC), a privately-held mortgage banking firm located in Franklin, Tennessee, is a full-service professional mortgage banker licensed to provide residential mortgages across the nation. FAMC, which offers a host of diverse, flexible mortgage packages for customers with a variety of backgrounds and needs, is committed to helping families and individuals achieve the dream of home ownership through its three divisions: retail, wholesale and correspondent.

An emerging leader in the mortgage industry, Franklin American Mortgage Company is fast becoming a preferred lender for consumers and mortgage professionals across the country. The Company’s Correspondent Lending division was designed to service small to large lenders across the nation. The Correspondent Lending division was created to harness FAMC’s growing national presence to provide high-quality services and products to these institutions and their customers. This will help smaller lenders compete with larger “mega banks” in an increasingly tight market.

The Company’s Wholesale division funds and underwrites loans for mortgage brokers, offering efficiency and scalability through superior technology. FAMC’s Retail division offers individuals throughout the United States the opportunity to work directly with the Company to secure a mortgage.

FAMC offers borrowers, brokers and lenders the strength and security of a forward-thinking national mortgage company, dedicated to remaining an industry trendsetter. FAMC truly values its relationship with each customer and mortgage professional they work with, maintaining a company tradition of responsiveness and personalized service characteristic of a much smaller organization. This philosophy has enabled FAMC to become one of the fastest growing mortgage bankers in the nation.

This growth rate has enabled Franklin American to become a six-time recipient of the Inc. 500 Award, subsequently entering the Company into the Inc. 500 Hall of Fame. Additionally, the Company has twice been recognized by Business Nashville Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in middle Tennessee and was awarded top honors for the Small Business Award by the Nashville Business Journal. The Company is also a three time recipient of the Nashville Chamber of Commerce and The Tennessean Music City Future 50 Award.

Franklin American Mortgage Company is based in Franklin, TN with offices throughout the country. The company is FHA Direct Endorsed, VA Automatic, a LAPP authority and a Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae Approved seller/servicer.

    Easy Interview


    I interviewed at Franklin American (Plano, TX) in May 2017.


    Was presented to FAM via a large recruiting firm who did a great job, but was turned down by FAM because I didn't have C# and .NET experience. After much discussion, the recruiting firm and I arrived at the decision that FAM has zero use for C# and .NET, weren't going to evaluate using it, weren't planning on ever evaluating it, had no need for someone experienced in it, just wanted it "because."

    This is why you don't put females with no IT experience in charge of staffing IT departments. This may be one of the many reasons FAM is the 12,378th largest mortgage company in the United States.

    They also require full business dress every day. This means tie and jacket.
