InterLinc Mortgage Services Welcomes Large Group of Highly Talented Mortgage Professionals in its Latest Move Toward Strategic Growth in Oklahoma City and Tulsa

May 15, 2018 GMT

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2018--InterLinc Mortgage Services welcomes a large group of experienced and well-connected mortgage professionals in its latest move toward strategic growth. Previously known as the “Red Rock Group,” these employees expand InterLinc’s branch operations in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas. The largest of the new InterLinc branches are located in Oklahoma City and Tulsa.

“The addition of the Red Rock Group increases both our geographic reach and our network of builders and realtors,” says James H. VanSteenhouse, CEO of InterLinc. “More than that, though, it represents tangible progress toward the strategic growth initiative we set forth earlier this year. There is no higher compliment than the industry’s most talented people choosing to work at InterLinc.”


At InterLinc’s company-wide rally in February 2018, President Gene Thompson revealed a strategic growth plan to increase InterLinc’s annual production to $3 billion by 2020. Following this announcement, both the former Red Rock President, Kelly Griggs, and Regional Vice President, Greg Mahaney, began talking with InterLinc about joining the company.

The prospect of extending InterLinc’s presence in Oklahoma and forging new relationships with builders and realtors in the region thrilled InterLinc management. Once the deal was finalized in March 2018, InterLinc Divisional President Shannon Fortner spearheaded the onboarding project.

Former Red Rock President and current InterLinc Divisional Branch Manager Kelly Griggs says, “Our team couldn’t be more delighted to join the InterLinc family. The Company is absolutely top notch, and the transition has been nothing short of magical. We share the same level of commitment to our clients and colleagues.”


According to feedback from the Red Rock Group employees, the transition was a seamless and positive experience. Scott Peters and Shelby Weston, both Loan Originators who joined InterLinc from Red Rock, feel that they have joined a very special organization. Scott says, “I cannot imagine what more InterLinc could have done to make our move any easier. I’ve been through a few transitions in the mortgage industry and have never witnessed a company as well organized as InterLinc. I quickly realized that InterLinc employees have a passion for our profession, and the Company has gone above and beyond to make each member of our team feel like family.”

Shelby agrees: “There’s a true culture to this company, and I’m proud to be a part of its success. InterLinc’s system is going to allow my team to build our business the right way-- forging strong relationships within the real estate community and offering the best customer service to our clients. The Company has given us the tools and training to move forward successfully. I truly feel at home with this company.”

InterLinc Branch Relationship Manager Ted Bryant adds this comment about the team from Red Rock: “Their people, their culture, and the way they do business aligns with the vision and standard we have here. Our motto is ‘On time and as agreed’ – five simple yet powerful words when used in the same sentence.

For more than a decade, InterLinc Mortgage Services has taken pride in delivering high quality home loans “ on time and as agreed ” to customers buying or refinancing. The Company offers loan originators and branch managers a company culture that treats them like family coupled with accountability metrics that drive production.
