Vision

Headquartered in greater Atlanta, Georgia, FormFree was born of founder Brent Chandler’s own experience as a homebuyer and his frustration with the amount of paperwork and documentation his lenders required. Our goal is to permanently remove the hassle of gathering paperwork from the borrowing process while enabling creditors to make sound lending decisions. Our long-term vision is to transform the way lenders think about borrower information, ultimately replacing reams of paper with a simple, 7-digit code that unlocks easy-to-read reports that tell lenders everything they need to know about a borrower.

Everything we do at FormFree is driven by our “consumer first” mindset. As borrowers ourselves, the FormFree team understands the importance of operating with transparency and with the utmost respect for our customers’ security and privacy.
