New American Funding has named Joe Smith as its new regional sales manager to oversee the state of Arizona.
Smith will be responsible for expanding the company’s brand statewide by recruiting new loan officers, identifying additional branch locations, and growing sales volume. Smith will also work one-on-one with loan officers to maximize their loan production.
“I’m thrilled about this new opportunity,” said Smith. “You can do loans anywhere. I came to New American Funding because the culture and people make the difference. They’re willing to do whatever it takes to succeed. Furthermore, the marketing for loan officers is the best that I’ve seen in the industry. This winning combination makes it a great environment for the originator to thrive.”
Smith is a 15-year mortgage industry veteran and prior to joining New American Funding, he worked as a branch manager for Caliber Home Loans. He also previously served as a branch manager and loan officer for both South Pacific Financial Corp. and Prospect Mortgage.
“Bringing Joe on board to New American Funding’s team has been an excellent fit. His integrity and first-rate reputation in the marketplace are in direct alignment with our goals and views,” said Milt Karavites, New American Funding’s regional vice president. “We have the utmost confidence in his ability to lead our Arizona growth. Not only does he possess a passion for mortgage banking but he distinctly understands the needs of the loan officer, real estate agent, and buyer.”
