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 -- Regional Builder Manager Chris Ledwidge, Regional Builder Manager Nate Borghi, Loan officers Terry Phillips, Norman LeVesque, Nowella Schooley, Liz Lopez, and Emil Canchola  -- 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.

I was lost and confused and unfortunately I got stuck with another Mortgage Lender that was unable to perform. Luckily for me the Sales Manager at DR Horton referred me to Chris Ledwidge and his team. After wasting almost a month with the other company I was pleasantly surprised that New American Funding was able to close my Escrow so quickly. From his Loan Officer Donald Deaton to his Sr. Processor Sara Jones.

Closed purchase loan: Every buyer experience with Chris was amazing. He was attentive to both the buyers and myself as an agent. His outside the box thinking and knowledge of his business was essential in closing deals. He was always responsive and there to meet or talk anytime a buyer needed him.

kimskobe74 (Closed purchase loan): We have purchased a number of homes and worked with many people during our 65+yrs. Our experience with Chris Ledwidge was by far the smoothest and most pleasurable of all. Chris was extremely knowledgeable and professional. So much so that we have asked his opinion on a couple things even after the closing of our home 18 mos ago. Working with Chris was definitely our pleasure!
