National Mortgage Lender Celebrates Grand Opening with Tempe Mayor
New American Funding, a leader in the mortgage industry, announced today that is has opened a new national call center in Tempe, AZ. The facility, which is located at 4415 S. Wendler Drive, will celebrate with a grand opening event on Wednesday, October 25 at 5:30 P.M. MST, along with the Mayor of Tempe, Mark Mitchell.
The mortgage lender moved into the facility after renovating the 12,000-square-foot space and converting it into a modern office environment complete with employee lounge. The location is a full-service home loan facility, transacting a complete spectrum of purchase and refinance loans.
The expansion into the greater Phoenix region was ideal due to a strong industry presence in the market that made it optimal for the company to continue growing its retail division. “New American Funding brings a great deal to this market. We have an industry-leading compensation plan, a high volume of incoming daily calls, and a 32-day average turn time with loan processing,” said Hooman Sharifi, Sales Manager. “Our customer service is superior and we provide all the tools for Loan Originators to succeed. There’s nothing we lack.”
Sharifi, who has been with New American Funding since 2014, is helping forge the company’s growth in Tempe. Last year, he was the #2 loan producer for the inside sales division. He and other managers have already built a team comprised of 47 mortgage professionals who are funding about $45 million per month in home loans.
“We’re very pleased with the level of talent, enthusiasm, and professionalism in Tempe,” said Ray Williams, Senior VP, Inside Sales Division. “This is only the beginning of greater things to come. We’re committed to the area for the long haul.”
By year’s end, the company plans to expand Tempe to 75 Loan Originators.
