Spokane, Wash. Oct. 16th, 2019 – Mortgage and financial technology provider SharperLending LLC announced today that Intercoastal Mortgage Company has selected the Appraisal Firewall real estate appraisal platform as their primary software system for managing residential appraisals.  Intercoastal will use the Appraisal Firewall platform to order, process, deliver, and run QC on residential valuation products.  Appraisal Firewall is secure, web-based real estate appraisal software for residential and commercial mortgage lenders to manage their own appraisal process.  Appraisal Firewall also offers the Verisite suite of mobile property inspection tools.

“We identified connectivity pain points as they relate to origination and appraisal processes with Intercoastal Mortgage Company and were able to find multiple synergies to assist in process efficiency,” says Tiffany Saraceno, VP of Sales at SharperLending LLC, the company behind the Appraisal Firewall software.  “We focus on continued innovation to drive industry change and bring velocity to property valuations for lenders and their loan products.”
