That level of commitment, understanding and expertise complements what we do for so many lenders and servicers at OSC.”

Mike Chapman added, “It was my number one priority that Kistler partner with a company that has outstanding technology for our lender clients to simplify and enhance their operations, and OSC’s IrisX lender-placed insurance web portal certainly accomplishes that. This, coupled with Kistler’s depth of experience in the community lending space, is a powerful combination and a natural progression of our familiar partnership. With the newly formed Community Lending Unit at OSC, the support, speed and access to competitive insurance rates is that much greater for this valued audience and we’re excited to expand this focus as part of this impressive team.”
