BELLEVUE, WASHINGTON — Movement Mortgage (Movement), the nation’s sixth-largest retail mortgage lender, is excited to announce the addition of new regional director Donovan Douvia to its team serving multiple communities in the Pacific Northwest.
With nearly 25 years of experience in home financing, Douvia (NMLS #348004) spent the last three as regional vice president and area sales manager at a top-ten home financing company catering to the Pacific Northwest. Earlier in his career, he held branch manager roles at Sterling Savings, Golf Savings and Opes Advisors (now Flagstar Bank). Douvia was also owner and president of Premier Lending, a company acquired by Golf.
“I’ve been aware of Movement for a long time. They’ve got a proven track record of putting people first and making home ownership accessible to everyone, which is how I’ve always approached this business,” said Douvia. “They’re a fresh, fun brand and an iconic company committed to making a positive impact in the lives of the people in the communities they serve. I couldn’t be more excited to join the team here in the Greater Seattle/Bellevue area.”
“I am beyond thrilled to have Donovan join Movement in the Pacific Northwest,” said Movement president Mike Brennan. “His vast knowledge of the business, his love of the region, his level of professionalism, and his exuberance align perfectly with Movement’s mission. As he grows the team, he is clearly going to be an incredible leader in the market.”
A graduate of the University of Washington, Douvia spends free time with his wife and two amazing sons. They enjoy spending time on the water, playing sports, and being with friends and family.
