Glen Steward

Glen is a true entrepreneur and began his mortgage career over 30 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. NMLS 209276

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.

Chelsea Smith

Chelsea began her mortgage career on the retail side of the industry where she became a top-performing originator before pursuing a more intrinsically fulfilling role. She has since transitioned into a leadership position with Nationwide Loans which has allowed her to build infrastructure and contribute to the success of a dynamic sales team. A retail background has granted her unique insight into the keys to success for an independent producer and the considerable benefits that the broker world has to offer.

How Chelsea embraces her independence:
When she isn’t challenging herself in pilates, Chelsea seeks to expand her horizons with travel. Whether visiting a new city within the United States or embarking on an international pilgrimage, she feels inspired by the novelty of new surroundings and human connections.
