We built Upwell as a springboard for opportunity – to help homeowners like you achieve their dreams. The lending industry today is split between two extremes, leaving many of homebuyers’ needs unmet. A growing number of tech-centric lenders offer efficient processes and low rates, but not reliable, local expertise to guide decision-making. And the mortgage companies with helpful, experienced loan officers? They usually have higher rates. Upwell brings together the best of both.

We connect you with seasoned mortgage professionals who know the ins and outs of your market, along with competitive rates and the convenience of technology. No need to compromise.

How are we able to take this approach? We made the decision to put homebuyers’ interests above all else. We’re creating a better balance in mortgage lending by looking out for you first. To us, it’s meaningful work, it’s good business, and it’s time you had another option.
