Sente launched in 2007 during one of the most tumultuous times in the history of mortgage lending. While many companies were closing their doors, we launched with a different name and a different model.
Since its inception, Sente Mortgage had a vision to be a different kind of mortgage company - not just a place for mortgages, but a place to create financial possibility. In fact, it is one of the reasons the company is named Sente.
The name Sente comes from a term used in the ancient strategy game Go and represents the winning position on the Go board. We adopted the term Sente as the name for the company as a metaphor for helping people “win at their financial game” or, better said, create a strong financial situation. This concept eventually formed the foundation for our company’s purpose, “We Create Financial Possibility.”
Sente’s owners believed they could build a mortgage company that was purpose-driven, relationship-based, and ethically grounded. Sente not only survived, but thrived during this chaotic time because we started fresh and were able to predict what the mortgage landscape would look like in the coming years. Because of this, the company is grounded in its core values, and focused on high ethics and creating a 5-star experience for our customers, our partners, and our employees.
Sente Mortgage has received hundreds of five-star reviews for it's exemplary service and support.
