About Mann Mortgage

Our Mission & Values

Mann Mortgage is a family-owned company that emphasizes community relationships, honesty, and integrity. Since our founding in 1989 by Don Mann, we have been committed to hometown values, solid partnerships, streamlined processes and cutting-edge technologies. Most importantly, we're committed to helping qualified borrowers in our communities fulfill the dream of home ownership.

The Mann Mortgage Story

In 1989, North Dakota native Don Mann hatched his plan to model a mortgage company after the 1950s era farming co-op. By pooling resources, lending could be kept personal and local. Don built the business on a foundation of integrity, relationships, and a genuine concern for family and community.

The cooperative spirit stands proven today. From a single loan officer back in the late 1980s in Kalispell, Montana, Mann Mortgage has expanded to include 55 branch locations and 500 employees. Mann Mortgage co-op branches enjoy a strong reputation built on depth and breadth of expertise, and enduring industry partnerships. We leverage our cooperative branches with Fortune 500-grade technologies and expert operational support. Our secondary markets team specializes in securing the best available warehouse line and investor relationships to support our cooperative branch loan originators’ production. Based on Don Mann’s original business model, we adhere to the basic philosophy that sharing collectively in the sale of our product benefits everyone. Volume speaks volumes, and in our 29 years we continue to thrive out of our original foundations.
