Quality Mortgage Services, LLC (QMS) was started in 1992 when company founder, Tom Duncan, a HUD (U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) retiree and veteran, heeded requests from friends and colleagues and decided to start a small QC firm from his home office after continuous requests from industry friends. Soon thereafter his son, Tommy A. Duncan, current Chief Executive Officer, joined him in this endeavor. Together, they worked on catering to the needs of a few mortgage banking clients, while creating an audit methodology and reports that would help satisfy industry obstacles during a time when paper, carbon copies and typewriters were considered the tools of the trade.
QMS was incorporated in 1999. Building on Tom Duncan's vision, the father and son team successfully grew the company into a premier boutique nationwide provider of mortgage QC services. This has included the development of the Mortgage Analysis Review Software (MARS) system, an advanced auditing platform used by lenders, to include powering the entire QMS product suite. Tommy's wife, Claudia Duncan recently took over the daily operations at QMS as President. Claudia brings a unique set of global business and marketing experience that is already making an impact on the innovative direction of the company.
QMS attributes its industry success to the commitment to stay abreast of the rapid and constant regulatory and compliance changes in our industry and to consistently producing solutions that address cutting edge trends.
