Movement expands Pittsburgh market with Nicole Carlin and The Grimm Team - Movement Mortgage Blog

PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania—Movement Mortgage, a national top 10 retail mortgage lender, is excited to announce the addition of Nicole Carlin, Michael Grimm and Colin Grimm to our Pittsburgh, PA market. 

Carlin (NMLS 1116063) has built a prominent name for herself in the mortgage industry for the last nine years and has closed over $75 million in production back in 2019 and 2020. 

Carlin is joined by “The Grimm Team,” consisting of Loan Officer assistant Michael Grimm (NMLS # 1907349), and Transaction Coordinator Colin Grimm.

  • Michael assists on the front-end working with agent partners and clients, sending pre-approval letters and answering general questions. 
  • Colin assists throughout each step of the loan process — acting as a liaison between underwriting and processing, sending initial contracts and helping support smooth closings. 

When asked what sets The Grimm Team apart from their competitors, Carlin believes that working with her family provides an experience with the utmost trust and efficiency. 

“My team and I are family,” she said. “And we support one another unlike any other partnership because that’s what family does. We keep each other on our toes and are constantly pushing each other forward to strive for growth, success and to provide an exceptional mortgage experience for our partners and clients.”

Carlin and The Grimm Team will serve our Pittsburgh market under the leadership of Market Leader Kevin O’Laughlin (NMLS 1289348). 

“Nicole is highly respected in the Pittsburgh area and is one of the area’s top producers,” said O’Laughlin. “We are very excited to bring her on board and to give her the support she needs to elevate her business to new heights.”

The Grimm Team is eager to adapt and grow in the current competitive market. They are prepared, their agent partners are prepared and together they will help Movement clients prepare for the biggest purchase of their lives.

“Nicole and team will play a huge role in helping Movement maintain Top 10 in market share in Pittsburgh,” added O’Laughlin.
