AUSTIN, April 8, 2022 – With Q1 in the books, Amplify Credit Union is reporting a record-breaking quarter in loan participation sales. According to Kristin Keller, Amplify’s SVP of Real Estate Lending, the credit union sold more than $300M in loan participations in the first quarter of 2022.

“When our colleagues at community banks and credit unions have space on their balance sheets, they come to us,” Keller said. “We’ve spent the past few years building out a powerful mortgage origination engine, and we are proud that we can help create strong returns for our community-focused partners.”
Amplify’s record-breaking loan origination is just the latest milestone for the Austin-based credit union. Five years ago, Amplify featured an annual loan origination output of $100M and no presence on the loan servicing market. As of 2021, Amplify had seen a 10x increase in loans originated and a 4x increase in loans serviced, resulting in over $1B in each line of business.
And while the total participation in Q1 shattered the organization’s previous high, Keller’s team is already on pace to double those numbers in Q2. “As relocation continues to reshape the Texas real estate market, the need for originators who handle complex, high-dollar loans is only increasing,” Keller added. “Our hope is that we can keep small- and mid-sized financial institutions from being shut out of a real estate market that could otherwise drive tremendous value for their members.”
