At Maxwell, our mission is to build enterprise software and services that empower people to make mortgage lending simpler and more accessible. Founded in 2015, our platform has grown to facilitate billions of dollars of mortgage volume for a growing network of lenders, service providers, real estate agents, and technology partners. We help lending teams work more efficiently and close loans 45% faster than the national average. We strive to make the lenders, and their employees, the real heroes who enable homeowners to achieve the American Dream.
Maxwell is based in beautiful Denver, Colorado and is backed by leading venture capital firms, including Techstars. Our world-class team of software experts and mortgage professionals work together and do whatever it takes to make each other successful. We're privileged that our company has been recognized by HousingWire, Progress in Lending, MReport, and others as a leading innovator in our industry. At the end of the day, we are a company doing honest work that really matters in the real world -- one lender, one borrower, one homeowner at a time. And it works.
