Our Story

We’re all about expertise.  

The Barrent Group was founded in 2008 by Richard Barrent, a former executive with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, and Richard Levitt, a retired Vice Chairman of Wells Fargo & Company. Mr. Levitt’s family founded Dial Finance, the company that would eventually become Wells Fargo Financial.  

 Our plan was simply to provide an easy way for our clients to gain reliable, actionable information on the quality and compliance of their loans. And that’s what we do today. Our formula is based on deep, comprehensive expertise packaged in flexibility and common-sense business practices. 

 Today, we’re proud to say our firm has grown to a team of the best minds in the business. Our goal from the beginning was to employ the best financial and analytical talent we could find, and that’s exactly what we did. It’s no accident that each of our team members averages over 10 years of mortgage underwriting and audit experience, that yields wide-reaching practical knowledge of loan review in all origination channels and platforms.  

 The Barrent Group is a member of the Mortgage Bankers Association, Structured Finance Industry Group, ARMCO ACES software, the Iowa Mortgage Association and has been FITCH approved. 

Working With Us

When The Barrent Group was founded in 2008, we were intent on becoming known as the industry’s “white-glove service” provider in mortgage QA, and today it’s our identity.  

Our expertise and adaptability are what set us apart.  

A team with decades of experience in mortgage QA provide the solid expertise our clients can rely on. Our boutique size and client-first business model provide the flexible, common-sense business practices they appreciate. 

At The Barrent Group, you won’t have to invest in changing your processes or systems—not your loan origination software, data format or any other feature—and you won’t have to wait long for unique requests or special conditions. Whenever we work with a new client, we expect to adapt to their needs, processes and systems, so it’s never an issue.  

Whether you’re looking for off-the-shelf mortgage QA or a fully customized analysis for a unique business challenge or opportunity, The Barrent Group’s service will always feel like it was custom designed for your unique situation. Because it is. That’s just the way we do business.
