New American Funding is pleased to announce that Patty Arvielo has been nominated for the 2014 Orange County Business Journal Women in Business Award. This award recognizes five professional women who have made significant contributions to their professions, organizations and the Orange County community.
Over the past 10 years, Patty has put in hard-work and countless hours towards transforming her company, New American Funding, into a national mortgage lender and brought the entire loan process in house - from origination to processing, and underwriting to funding. Her experience in residential lending prompted New American Funding to form its own Realtor-based Lending Division, a community level sales team focused on helping people buy and keep homes.
Patty continues to actively contribute to the bottom line, originating and booking nearly $2 million in home loans each month on her own, all while managing operations and sales for New American Funding’s headquarters in Orange County, nationwide branches and over 1000 employees. She recognizes the importance of originating and “walking the walk,” all while doing so reminding colleagues that she keeps her finger on the pulse of the market and is in touch with the “streets.” She prides herself on her understanding of the industry and knowing how her staff of loan officers feels at any given moment.
Patty has a gift for aligning talent and skill sets with opportunity. She challenges her teams to take on new projects with both confidence and determination. She gently, yet firmly, pushes her teams out of their comfort zones, and encourages them to hit even their most challenging goals.
