Welcome to

This New User Onboarding Roadmap will walk you through the process of getting your new account set up and configured.

This roadmap is designed for Company Admins setting up a new Company account. If you are a Branch Admin setting up a new Branch, most of the process will be identical (with Branch Settings instead of Company Settings) though some configurations will not be available to you.


If you are not an Admin, most of the configurations in the Company Settings section will not be available to you, however some (Pre-Approval Letter, Email Templates, Client Needs Rules) can be set in your User Settings.


Before you start setting up your account, make sure that you have everything you'll need handy.

Click here to expand the list. 


  • Username and password for your account with your Credit Vendor
  • Username and password for your DO/DU account with Fannie Mae
  • System-to-System username and password for your LPA account with Freddie Mac
    • If you don't know your system-to-system credentials, call Freddie Mac at 800-FREDDIE
  • Email address and password for your DocuSign account (not necessary if you will be purchasing a Broker Pro subscription)
  • Email address and password for the email account you want your system-generated emails to come from
  • Your personal State License numbers for each state you are licensed in, and your Company's State License numbers for each state your company is licensed in
    • If you don't know these, you can easily find them in the "State Licenses/Registrations" section of your listing/your company's listing on nmlsconsumeraccess.org


Setting your account up with most of our default templates and configurations should take you less than an hour. One of the strengths of ARIVE is it's customization, so you can dig as deeply as you want into making things exactly the way you want them.


Click on a step to be taken to a walkthrough of how to configure each setting. At the bottom of each page you can click the Right arrow to move on to the next step, or the Left arrow to come back to this roadmap.
