Lone Wolf integrates mortgage partners into real estate’s top transaction management solution to deliver an end-to-end, fully connected mortgage experience

New integration between Lone Wolf Transactions and Better provides over 700,000 agents in the U.S. with a simpler mortgage prequalification process for their clients with more partners to come

DALLAS, TX and CAMBRIDGE, ON – December 5, 2023 – Lone Wolf Technologies (“Lone Wolf”) is thrilled to announce a new integration for Lone Wolf Transactions (zipForm Edition) and Lone Wolf Transactions (TransactionDesk Edition): Mortgage prequalification. The new integration opens the door for a range of mortgage partners to connect to the system over the next several months, starting today with Better (NASDAQ:BETR, BETRW), a leading digital-first homeownership company. With this integration, over 700,000 users in the U.S. will be able to help their clients get prequalified for a mortgage in the same system they’re already using for offers, contracts, and signatures.

Better joins over 30 technology companies in Lone Wolf Marketplace, a catalog of partner integrations built directly into Transactions and provided to over 1,000 MLSs and associations and more than 700,000 agents in the U.S. This connection between Better’s industry-leading digital mortgage solution and the leading provider of forms and transaction management software gives agents and brokers a unique advantage in a competitive market by empowering them to provide their clients with a connected prequalification and loan origination process that can significantly speed up closing times and improve overall experiences.

Marketplace also gives Transactions users access to critical closing and client services, including rental screening, earnest money deposit, commission advances, disclosures, home warranty, home insurance, and moving services, to bolster their transaction experience. These integrations join in-house connections to Lone Wolf’s CRM, CMA, advertising, and back office solutions, LionDesk and Propertybase, Cloud CMA, Boost, and Back Office respectively, to provide agents and brokers with a complete—and completely connected—system for their entire real estate business, from the first impression to the final contract and commission check.

"Adding this integration to Transactions will bring our customers even more value in their trusted transaction management solution,” said Jimmy Kelly, CEO of Lone Wolf. “When agents and brokers have everything they need for their client experience in one place, they can quickly capitalize on opportunities, cross every T, and dot every I along the way. We’re pleased to launch this integration with a great partner in Better and look forward to working directly with real estate brokerages and organizations across the country to bring their preferred partners into the solution as well.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Lone Wolf and bring this agent-first integration to market in pursuit of our mission to make homeownership cheaper, faster, and easier for Americans,” said Vishal Garg, CEO and founder of Better. “Agents play a crucial role in the home purchase process, and in the current interest rate environment, we expect mortgage volume to be predominantly purchase transactions for the foreseeable future. Lone Wolf has paved the way for innovation in real estate software and combining forces allows us to provide agents with game-changing technology to close more home purchase transactions than ever before.

The new integration provides Transactions users with a simple path to helping their clients get a mortgage prequalification and stay up to date on the status of the loan. In Transactions, a user will initiate a request for a prequalified letter from their buyer client. The buyer will then receive mortgage provider selections from their agent. When the buyer chooses a provider, that provider then begins direct communications with the buyer to process their prequalification letter. When complete, the letter is shared directly with the agent for their records. Further, as the loan process progresses, the agent will see the status of the loan in Transactions in near-real time. In connecting with Better, a technology leader dedicated to making it more accessible for all Americans to own a home, Lone Wolf is making the process of finding a home easier as well.

"Real estate has undergone significant change in the past several years,” said Jake Hamilton, Senior Vice President of Strategy at Lone Wolf. “There is now a much greater need for software that effortlessly connects the various people, products, and processes involved to make it easier than ever to buy and sell homes. With its built-in connections to Lone Wolf’s leading software, and its seamless integrations to top partners like Better, Transactions is the only real estate transaction management solution capable of doing this, the only one that can meet the digital demands of the present and the future.”
