NestReady and Meridian Partner to Simplify the Home Buying and Mortgage Experience

2017-11-29 9:13:38 AM
MONTREAL, QC - Today NestReady announces its partnership with Meridian, Ontario’s largest credit union, to transform and integrate the mortgage and home buying process into a seamless experience for Ontarians. 
NestReady and Meridian are defining the future of the real estate experience by bridging the gap between home discovery and financing. While there are now more millennials seeking to buy a place to live, the process of finding a home and a mortgage is still mostly an archaic, offline process with lots of paperwork and wasted time. NestReady combines every single aspect of the home buying experience into one seamless platform.
Through NestReady’s platform, house hunters can search a variety of properties tailored to their home search criteria.  House hunters will be connected to NestReady affiliated real estate agents to aid in their home search.  Once homeowners are ready to move forward with their property purchase, they can easily secure their financing pre-approval through Meridian’s digital mortgage platform or network of mobile mortgage specialists. 
“We help build customer loyalty by providing value that goes beyond just financial transactions,” says Marcos Carvalho, Co-Founder & Chief Revenue Officer at NestReady. "By aggregating all aspects of the home buying journey onto one platform, we remove pain points for home buyers and make it easier to buy their dream home in a competitive market such as Toronto.”
Prospective homebuyers who complete their home search through NestReady’s affiliated real estate agents and Meridian are entitled to cash back, based on the value of their new home.
“As a Member-centric financial institution, Meridian is focused on finding new and innovative ways to better serve our Members,” says Bill Maurin, President and CEO of Meridian.   “NestReady integrates the house hunting and home buying process into a unified experience for our Members.  Furthermore, this partnership provides our Members an opportunity to receive a cash back reward for completing their home search and purchase through this state-of-the-art platform.”
Financial institutions must invest in new tools to engage and retain customers in a world of rapidly changing technology and expectations. As customers navigate one of their most critical life events, NestReady empowers them with the confidence to make the right financial decisions, through the online environment of their trusted financial institution.
