TRI Pointe Homes Northern CA Launches New Lending Service, TRI Pointe Connect

TRI Pointe Connect to Provide Seamless Customer Support Throughout the New Home Closing Process

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2015) - TRI Pointe Homes Northern California (NYSE: TPH), a member of the TRI Pointe Group, announced today the launch of TRI Pointe Connect as its in-house mortgage company, making California the eighth state in the nation to offer mortgage services through the new company.

TRI Pointe Connect will offer an integrated team of mortgage loan consultants on-site in the Northern California market, who will provide personalized service, competitive rates, and a wide portfolio of mortgage products to TRI Pointe Homes homebuyers -- all intended to make the home buying process simple and smooth.

"We're always looking for new ways to make purchasing a TRI Pointe home easier for our customers," said Carrie Newbery, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for TRI Pointe Homes Northern California. "Providing a service that personalizes the financing experience, and enables communication between all parties, ensures a smooth process from beginning to end."

Formed as a joint venture between TRI Pointe Group and imortgage, a division of loan Depot LLC, TRI Pointe Connect opened its doors in California following launches earlier this year in Arizona, Colorado, Washington, Texas, Maryland, Virginia and Nevada.

"We look forward to a successful relationship with TRI Pointe Homes, and are thrilled to roll out TRI Pointe Connect in California," said Dan Pena, senior vice president of imortgage. "Through TRI Pointe Connect, TRI Pointe Homes can leverage the in-house knowledge and expertise that imortgage has offered customers for more than 15 years. We look forward to providing customers with best-in-class service across all six of TRI Pointe Group's brands."

imortgage is one of the nation's top five nonbank retail mortgage lenders whose new home builder platform has produced the highest customer service scores of all U.S lenders as measured by Eliant in 2014. TRI Pointe Connect is the company's first lending service and will be launched across all six TRI Pointe Group homebuilding brands. TRI Pointe Connect's focus will be on delivering competitive mortgage products, personalized service and an enhanced buying experience.

The rollout of TRI Pointe Connect in California follows after one of the largest mergers in homebuilding history, wherein five other builders became part of TRI Pointe Group in the company's 2014 merger with Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Company (WRECO). The merger made TRI Pointe Group one of the top 10 largest public homebuilders by market equity capitalization in the United States.
