Maxwell was founded in 2015 by homebuyers who were shocked by the complexity and inefficiencies of the mortgage process for borrowers and lending teams alike. Maxwell has created a platform that has not only streamlined the process and made it more efficient but has made mortgages more accessible in the process. Our mission is clear: democratize mortgage by helping lenders work more efficiently and stay compliant while eliminating the barrier to entry and the stress for the borrower.

We are a company focused on a supportive, diverse, and inclusive culture. We live our values of Rigor, Ownership, Curiosity, Kindness, and "Straight Up" to bring equality to the mortgage process and spread financial empowerment.
