Twenty years of mortgage banking and broker experience has allowed us to create a platform and pricing model that helps our loan officers succeed. Our mission is simple: Offer the best tools, pricing and technology at the lowest cost.


Glen Steward, President/Broker

Glen is a true entrepreneur at heart and began his mortgage career over 20 years ago where he quickly became a top producer, broker, and later founder of a successful wholesale lending company, Steward Financial.


Navigating the imminent industry storms of that time, Glen launched his next venture with Steward Investments, a real estate finance corporation where he built out Nationwide Direct Lending; a retail division that eventually sold to Guaranteed Rate. His expertise in the field led him to consulting and ultimately pooling his knowledge to establish Nationwide Loans.


Glen has a strong knack for cultivating lender relationships, understanding the intricacies of pricing, and maintaining a lean business model which attracts many top producers to Nationwide Loans.


Born and raised in San Diego, Glen has been a beach lover, avid surfer, and waterman ever since he can remember. His love of surfing has brought him to some of his favorite travel destinations.
