About Jason Ugay
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. The mortgage company has continued its acceleration by utilizing innovative technology such as a suite of mobile apps, featuring GoGo LO, an on-the-go version of New American Funding’s proprietary CRM software. GoGo LO increases productivity and makes the job of processors, underwriters, and production assistants easier. As the leadership has maintained a forward-looking approach, New American Funding formed the Latino Focus Committee in 2013 to address the challenges Hispanic consumers face in their pursuit of home ownership. The committee upholds a passion for serving the community by participating in volunteer work and coordinating educational events for Latino Americans. The goal from the beginning has been to enhance the quality of their lending experience. After nearly 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 2,700 individuals, establish more than 130 nationwide branches, maintain a servicing portfolio of $22 billion, and fund approximately $1 billion 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.
