Glen Steward

Glen is a true entrepreneur and began his mortgage career over 25 years ago where he quickly became a top producer, broker, and later founder of a successful nationwide wholesale lending company, Steward Financial. He then expanded the company into a consumer direct retail division that was eventually sold to Guaranteed Rate.

Glen’s expertise in the field of banking led him to consulting and ultimately pooling his knowledge to establish Nationwide Loans. His strong knack for cultivating lender relationships, understanding the intricacies of pricing, and maintaining a lean business model attracts many top producers to Nationwide Loans.

How Glen embraces his independence:
Connecting with nature is how Glen finds balance in life. He enjoys surfing both locally and venturing to exotic surf destinations, as well as exploring national parks where he enjoys mountain biking, hiking, snowboarding, and glamping.
