The pillars of effective web design for mortgage brokers
Streamlines business operations
As a mortgage broker, you're always on call, navigating clients' expectations, emotions, and finances. You’re expected to respond fast without sacrificing quality. So, a website shouldn't add to your workload — it should alleviate it. The best mortgage brokerage websites facilitate client communications and digitize scheduling, document signing, and invoicing tasks.
Establishes trust and credibility
Before choosing a mortgage broker, borrowers look for evidence of trustworthiness. It starts with a reliable modern website that translates the complexities of mortgages into an easy-to-understand copy that puts the reader at ease. It also builds credibility through social proof, including client testimonials and five-star reviews.
Simplifies client engagement
A recent survey found that exceptional customer experience was almost as important to borrowers as getting the best interest rate. Your website needs to streamline the client experience so every client recommends you to their friends and family, and even leaves an online review. Improve their experience and stay in communication with a built-in contact manager, automated follow-ups, and simplified scheduling process.
Drives traffic and attracts new clients
Forty-three percent of clients research mortgage information online before they choose a broker. So above all else, your website must be built on SEO best practices to capture this traffic. It also has to include enticing conversion tools, like pop-ups, calls-to-action, and compelling content that capitalizes on this search traffic, converting more visitors to new clients.

Scale your mortgage brokerage with an online presence that works as hard as you do
What's the difference between a basic mortgage broker website and one that elevates your business?
The best mortgage broker websites drive traffic, make a positive first impression, and improve the client experience with powerful online tools.
A basic website provides contact information and a list of professional services. It's a dull, stagnant menu that doesn't encourage visitors to interact, explore resources, or schedule a free consultation. Without strategic CTAs, interactive features, or client intake forms, there are significant roadblocks to conversion.
Mortgage broker websites that turn visitors into clients follow proven SEO principles to improve rankings and generate organic traffic. But it doesn't stop with keywords and backlinks — an effective website uses smart integrations and automations to serve your exact audience and keep them coming back.
Surveys repeatedly tell us that borrowers value customer service, not just price, when working with mortgage brokers. A great website improves their experience, harnessing the power of technology to provide prompt and clear communication, a more cohesive experience, and scheduling, payment processing, and eSignatures, all done in seconds.

Frequently asked questions from mortgage brokers
A custom web design agency may eventually (after much back and forth) be able to produce the website of your dreams, but it will likely cost you an arm and a leg. Custom web projects, built from the ground up, typically cost tens of thousands of dollars. The custom design process also requires a lot of communication, normally taking months of meetings to see a finished project. It’s more time-consuming than you initially expect and prone to miscommunications.
We are proud that launching a website through the B12 platform is entirely different. Our web design process is fast, more affordable, and packed with built-in tools designed specifically for professional service providers, including mortgage brokers, to serve clients online.
Instead of months, you'll get your first AI-generated draft in seconds. Then, in 30 days or less, you work with a team of designers, writers, and SEO specialists to customize your new website with content, branding, structure, features, and integrations. We offer straightforward pricing so you know what to budget for.
Throughout the project, we incorporate your feedback to ensure we get it right. Once you sign off on the design, we help you launch ASAP so you can start connecting with your clientele.
B12 has plenty of powerful built-in tools that, depending on your plan, are included in your website and incredibly easy to use. Email marketing, contact management, digital contracts, eSignatures, online scheduling, and payment processing — it’s all baked into your online presence.
Of course, we also offer all of the popular third-party integrations you love to use, such as Drift, Medium, Calendly, PayPal, Shopify, and Zillow.
Start with the basics: fast page speed, mobile-friendly design, and functional navigation. Then, work with B12's team of SEO and copywriter specialists to build out keyword-driven content that provides helpful information relevant to your niche and market area.
Finally, grow your backlink portfolio. B12's team helps you start by submitting your website and business to relevant business listings for high-quality backlinks and to drive more traffic from potential clients looking for mortgage solutions.
You'll also likely want to go local when it comes to mortgage broker SEO. Local SEO aims to grow traffic from searchers in your area through local business listings, geographic keywords, and other tactics.
Yes! The most places you are listed, the more ways clients can find you. If your business is on publicly available lists and databases, it also helps build credibility and trust.
The most listings you pursue, the more backlinks you'll earn, and the better it is for SEO. B12 will help your website launch by submitting your business to relevant business directories.
But you can keep earning backlinks by submitting your website to all the professional organizations you belong to, including the National Association of Mortgage Brokers (NAMB), your local Chamber of Commerce, and more. There are also specific databases like Rocket Mortgage and Zillow. Plus, don't forget about broader databases like Yelp and FInder.
