Company Overview

Valutrust Solutions, LLC, a Williston Financial Group company, provides national appraisal management services and proprietary technology solutions to banks and residential lenders.

Our proprietary technology integrates with our client's loan origination system (LOS), allowing automated management of every lending activity—from appraisal management and collateral review through title and closing. All products and information are delivered through a single, integrated, proprietary portal. When using our service, clients see loan ordering accuracy and productivity go up, and are assured of full compliance with relevant government regulations.

Key Differentiators

No other vendor and appraisal management technology affords the breadth of service and flexibility of our proprietary, cloud-based software. We understand the industry and goals of every player involved throughout the loan process.

Integrating our solution takes days not months with no cost to the customer! The system becomes the single data entry and information delivery point for everyone involved in the loan process, providing secure, real-time, status updates as well as:

  • One touch ordering of products and pricing
  • Consolidation of client and vendor systems to one real-time portal
  • Instant notification on all transactions and actions through the portal
  • Custom workflow by client
  • Automation of manual tasks such as:
    • Fannie and Freddie UCDP uploads
    • Delivery of the final appraisal to the borrower
    • Third party compliance tools CoreLogic, LSAM, and LSI VI
