Owner & CEO
Mid America Mortgage
Under Jeff Bode’s leadership, Mid America Mortgage has built a reputation as one of the industry’s foremost adopters of e-mortgage technology and digital mortgage processes. Most recently, the company launched Click n’ Close, a new digital mortgage approval and closing platform that provides homebuyers with a fast, simple and secure experience, getting them from application to closing within two weeks and putting keys in the buyer’s hand in 15 minutes or less. Mid America Mortgage has also entered into official partnership agreements to make Click n’ Close the official mortgage provider of NASCAR and a partner of Richard Petty Motorsports.
Bode became owner of Mid America Mortgage in 1989 and was the first lender to develop an interface inside Calyx’s Point software to enable brokers to price, lock, underwrite and receive loan status through Point. In 2003, Bode sold the company’s assets to Aegis Mortgage and focused on developing Mortgage Machine Services, the loan origination system the company uses today. After re-entering the industry in 2007, Bode purchased Schmidt Mortgage Company in 2010, reorganized its operations and incorporated the loan production of another mortgage operating unit he previously managed, relaunching the company in December 2011 as Mid America Mortgage.
