Mason-McDuffie Mortgage Corporation, headquartered in San Ramon, CA is a mortgage banker, licensed in multiple states. With a rich history in real estate, Mason-McDuffie has been a leader in mortgage lending since 1887. In 1982 the Company held the 6th largest portfolio in the U.S. and was purchased by Weyerhaeuser Mortgage Company that same year. Mason-McDuffie Mortgage was reestablished in 2005 through the joint venture of several original partners. Leveraging the extensive experience of its senior management and loan officers, Mason-McDuffie Mortgage offers a broad range of loan products using the newest and most innovative technology available in the mortgage industry.

Our Culture
We are employee owned and employee built. Our employees are our extended family and are our Number One asset. To recruit and sustain a team of creating thinkers in the lending field, we provide an environment that fosters professional growth and career satisfaction. We operate under the Kaizen philosophy of continuous improvement. Everything is a discussion and ideas are encouraged. Only together will we build the best mortgage company in the industry. The happy and well-balanced work atmosphere we maintain allows our experienced staff to consistently provide exemplary customer service. A loyal and growing clientele served by a dedicated and reliable team, grows from this solid foundation. We are privately-held by the senior management team so decisions are driven by what is best for the company and its clients, not to meet demands of outside investors.


Our goal is to provide leadership and equip our employees with the training and necessary tools for professional lending success on whatever career path they choose with us. We are a mortgage banker, not a broker, which gives our team a competitive edge.

The advantages we provide:

A stable environment with opportunities for advancement in a company with roots in the real estate lending business dating back to 1887. We offer a professional development path for each staff member and seek to help each person grow their skills, and meet their goals and their career plans.

A strong support staff of experienced underwriters and full in-house services including underwriting, drawing documents and funding loans. This competitive advantage allows us to close loans much more quickly than the competition, generally in 21 to 30 days.

A menu of loan solutions including VA, FHA, conforming conventional and non-conforming conventional as well as 203k renovations loans and specialized Department of Agriculture loans in some markets.

Senior management, including the chairman, who started as loan officers and know what is required to serve clients well. Chairman Herb Tasker has been an industry leader for years and is a past President of the National Mortgage Bankers Association.

Aggressive compensation plans that allow our loan officers to be rewarded for serving their clients well. We recognize our President’s Club members (the top 10 percent) with an annual trip.

Tools for your success: Industry changing concierge marketing and support for our loan officers along with technology that comes from outside our industry. 

A competitive benefits package

    Pros

Management is always looking to their employees for ideas and inspiration to help the company to grow. THey utilize technology of all kinds to include all the branches all over the country to see and be included in the company activities which is a great method to create a send of connection even though employees and branches may be miles or states apart.

    Cons

    Be ready to hustle during certain times of the month when demand for speed is highest,. But don't worry, All that hard work is rewarded! Also be ready for your work to be scrutinized as compliance is tantamount here and taken VERy seriously by all who are employed here.
