Why New American Funding? Family-owned, New American Funding is an independent mortgage lender headquartered in Orange County, California, that is dedicated to helping other families and individuals improve their quality of living through home ownership. In 2003, founders Rick and Patty Arvielo combined their expertise to create a progressive business that quickly grew from a 40-employee call center into a national mortgage banker and industry powerhouse.
Leveraging technology and streamlined operations, they created a lending process that became highly efficient. Rick used his technical aptitude to design the New American Funding business model around timesaving software, while Patty provided crucial insight from her extensive mortgage background that ultimately brought the entire loan process in-house.
Tradition of Mortgage Excellence – After 15 years in the mortgage business, New American Funding has continued operating off of its foundational principles, which has enabled the company to employ about 2700 individuals, establish more than 145 nationwide branches, maintain a servicing portfolio of $23 billion, and fund approximately $900 Million in loans per month. The company is a Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae direct lender, seller, and servicer that operates its own builder and real estate based lending divisions, as well as a large loan-servicing unit. While we have achieved tremendous business success in a short time frame, we believe our family-like culture that emphasizes teamwork, unity, and fun is what sets us apart.
