The history of Legacy Mutual Mortgage began in 2003 as a two-man operation by Legacy President Dan Diepenhorst and his business partner, current Senior Vice President and Loan Officer Josh Sigman. The two began originating loans for the realtor and builder partners and contacts they had made at other lenders and homebuilding companies while also building a name for Legacy.
As Dan and Josh began to recruit some of the top lending professionals to join their team at Legacy, word spread and, as Dan comments, “Loan professionals across the city saw the success and said ‘If we can’t beat them, we might as well join them.’”
In 2011, Legacy formally joined with Crockett National Bank, a well-trusted and respected name in banking. Headquartered out of San Angelo, TX, Crockett provided additional backing and support to the growing lender. In 2013, Legacy Mutual Mortgage completed another paramount stage of growth and expansion by purchasing their current corporate headquarters located in San Antonio, TX.
With over 65 loan officers company-wide, Legacy is focused on serving their trusted customers and referral partners with a “raving fan” type of service. When working with their realtors, Legacy loan officers make it a priority to provide additional value to their partnership through mutually-beneficial educational and networking opportunities. Legacy provides monthly or bi-monthly classes on topics such as pertinent changes in the industry, social media, latest technology tools, understanding credit and its impact on buying a home, and how to market to your database. Legacy also hosts referral partner appreciation events to show gratitude toward those who help make the business a success.
While Legacy is growing quickly, it has remained committed to outstanding customer service that they’re known for. By focusing on continued growth into other markets at the right rate with the right people, Legacy ensures they will always provide the same top-quality service, professional expertise, and personal involvement in all loan transactions.
