LEHI, Utah, June 14, 2022 – SimpleNexus (, an nCino (NASDAQ: NCNO) company and developer of the United States’ leading homeownership platform for loan officers, borrowers, real estate agents and settlement agents, today announced that independent mortgage bank Family First Funding has implemented Nexus Engagement™, Nexus Origination™ and Nexus Closing™ to provide borrowers with a streamlined, single sign-on homebuying experience.

Family First Funding has made the SimpleNexus platform available enterprise-wide to its 200 loan officers. According to Family First Funding Chief Operations Officer and Co-Founder Neusa Gillen, the independent mortgage bank selected SimpleNexus to elevate its brand with single sign-on, mobile-first technology that makes home financing accessible from any internet-enabled device.

“Family First Funding implemented SimpleNexus’ homeownership platform because its intuitive interface and ‘from anywhere’ functionality facilitates a modern, personalized experience that supports our borrowers through every step of the homebuying process,” said Gillen. “Even more special is that SimpleNexus’ mobile-first functionality isn’t just for borrowers.
