Appointed CEO of loanDepot’s mello Home
Former Keller Williams CEO Chris Heller has joined loanDepot as CEO of mello Home, the lender’s newest platform. Heller was CEO of Keller Williams for two years.
Announced in January, mello Home connects homebuyers and homeowners to contractors and mortgage and real estate professionals. For agents, the brand offers buyers, preapproved by loanDepot, in exchange for a fee once the transaction closes.
“It’s simple: serve customers with the best people and technology,” says Anthony Hsieh, CEO and founder of loanDepot. “That’s how loanDepot became the fifth largest U.S. lender in just eight years. Now with mello Home, we’ve hired the nation’s top real estate CEO and continue growing our 450-plus technology team every week to give our customers one place to manage the business of their home.”
“A one-stop shop for buying, financing, and improving homes is finally here thanks to loanDepot and mello Home,” says Heller. “Together, we enable people to get home purchase or improvement loans any time from any device, then connect with verified local real estate agents and contractors to finish the job fast.”
Heller began at Keller Williams in 2010. In April 2017, Keller Williams announced Heller would no longer act as co-CEO alongside John Davis and become an operating partner and regional owner.
