Your New American Mortgage Starts Here

Over a decade ago, New American Funding began with a clear vision and a plan for gradual but steady expansion. Fast forward to summer of 2015. This is when the Redlands Builder branch first opened up shop. In the heart of Redlands, surrounded by the aroma of freshly grown oranges from the beautiful world famous orange groves, sits our office. We have brought forth our team of highly skilled industry professionals -- Branch Manager Chris Ledwidge, Branch Manager Nate Borghi, Loan officers Jim Koval, Kelli Cargal, Nowella Schooley, Liz Lopez, and Vanessa Corona -- who pride themselves on their skill, integrity, and professionalism.

Our goal here at New American Redlands is to offer exceptional customer service and affordable lending to the amazing people who want and need it. Not only do we want to work with our borrowers in obtaining the best loan for them, but we strive on making it the easiest and most effortless process imaginable on the borrower's end. 

Rick and Patty Arvielo, New American's founders and owners strived to establish a company not only known for its product, but also its delivery. Since our beginnings in 2003, New American has established itself as one of the foremost experts on affordable lending.

Our experience with Chris Ledwidge was by far the smoothest and most pleasurable of all. Chris was extremely knowledgeable and professional.
