Box was established by Jeff Reeves and Aaron Brown in 2006. Reeves and Brown both got started in the mortgage industry as loan officers in the late 90s.
They say they started Box with the idea that with “the right technology” they could “make the loan process faster, less expensive, more predictable, and somewhat paradoxically, more human.”
Box is currently only available in 43 states. Before moving forward with Box, check to make sure that it is licensed in your state. You can find a full list here.
