LINTHICUM, MD, June 13, 2022 – NFM Lending, a national mortgage lender, celebrating its 25th year in business, announced today that it has secured the domain readysetmortgage.com on the private market (financial terms were not disclosed). The website URL aligns with NFM’s rebranding in 2020, including the trademarked tagline Ready. Set. Mortgage.

The new website is under construction and will serve as a “final stop” and an essential resource for homebuyers wanting a second opinion on their interest rate. Readysetmortgage.com will allow users to quickly and securely share the deal they are being offered and, within 24 hours, receive a comprehensive analysis. They will be assured that their current offer is the best in some instances. In other cases, they will receive a better quote. 

“NFM is thrilled to be able to offer consistency in branding and an easy-to-remember place for all homeowners, while also educating them about the mortgage process,” said NFM’s Chief Business Development Officer, Greg Sher. “The new domain simplifies one of the biggest financial decisions consumers will make. It’s an easy way for them to get an expert assessment and see if there is an opportunity to get an even better deal than the one being offered”.

The website and marketing efforts will launch in Q3 2022.

Medford Lakes, NJ, March 17, 2022 — Mortgage veterans Mack Dadyan and Larry Colangelo announced today that they have joined NFM Lending in their Medford Lakes, NJ branch located at 4 Trading Post Way. The branch, specializing in residential mortgages throughout Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia is led by Branch Managers Dana Gounaris and Ron Gosewisch.

“We are excited that Mack Dadyan and Larry Colangelo chose to join our team at NFM Lending,” said Gounaris. “They have both demonstrated that they are a top originating team in our market. We are glad they saw the value of our partnership and we are thrilled about the future together.”

Dadyan and Colangelo, whose reputation among clients and business partners have led them to become top mortgage consultants in the nation, conducted an exhaustive search for the right mortgage company.

“After spending the good part of five years as a mortgage banker, I had a clear understanding of the issues that the banking system faces,” noted Dadyan. “There is a dire need for a streamlined, efficient, and technologically comprehensive mortgage process. After investigating 36 companies and interviewing six, I discovered that NFM Lending was the obvious choice. They are by far the most forward thinking and proactive company in our marketplace. Their desire to grow with the loan originator and provide them with the technological resources and tools to manage market changes was the separating factor. Most banks and mortgage companies want the loan originator to look to them for solutions, and those companies then propose one corporate solution to all problems, whether that solution is beneficial to the loan originator or not. NFM Lending was different. They recognize that every loan officer is unique and may require unique solutions to their own individual problems. So, they encourage loan originators to bring the solutions that they require, and NFM works to implement these solutions as quickly and painlessly as possible. They recognize that the loan originator is their own brand and that NFM must first provide us the support to promote our brand. So we feel confident pushing out and acknowledging the corporate brand of NFM. We are excited for new beginnings and to have continued success under NFM.”

Dadyan and Colangelo will focus on expanding NFM’s flexible and powerful lending platform to better serve Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia community families with exceptional customer service. The branch’s goal is to continue to provide the same commitment and dedication to borrowers, ranging from first-time homebuyers to seasoned buyers looking for their next home, a second home, or investment properties.

They attribute their success in the mortgage industry to their steadfast commitment to customers and the community.

LINTHICUM, MD, January 4, 2022 – NFM Lending, a top national mortgage lender in business since 1998, today announced the launch of its Influencer Division, led in part by TikTok sensation Scott Betley (@thatmortgageguy). Betley joined the company in May 2021 and has spent the last eight months putting a structure in place to support and help grow the channel. He currently has 720,000 loyal followers and some of his videos have eclipsed 5 million unique views. Coinciding with the launch, Betley has been promoted to Vice President, Co-Creator of the division. 

“I am so humbled and honored NFM recognized the power of creativity and was willing to commit the resources necessary to put the many pieces in place to deliver an all-encompassing experience for the direct-to-consumer client,” said Betley. “My followers want transparency, a great digital experience and in many cases, a partner who understands the incubation process from lead to close often takes time and patience.  The leadership at NFM has overwhelmed me with the level of resources they’ve put toward this launch and this new endeavor has no limits.” Betley’s rise to creator prominence has happened fast; He made his first TikTok video in December of 2019.

In addition to being a contributing architect on the consumer experience arm of the division, Betley has created a robust training platform for loan officers and real estate agents who have the desire and determination to gain traction in the social media and creator space—in other words to go “viral.” The early results from this program have been staggering.

NFM’s Chief Business Development Officer Greg Sher sought Betley out in early 2021 and approached him about building something together. “I thought the idea of lead generation through influencers had potential, but you never really know until you start the engines and get going,” said Sher. “This new division has the all the makings of a watershed moment for NFM and to have the Michael Jordan of mortgage influencers as a partner is incredible. I can’t wait to see what this looks like in 1-3 years.”

LINTHICUM, MD, October 7, 20201— NFM TV, a four-time Telly-award-winning media division of NFM Lending, announced today that it secured an exclusive interview with the mother and stepfather of fallen U.S. Marine David Lee Espinoza. The interview was part of the company’s NFM Salute initiative. Each month one military member or Veteran is chosen to be honored as the “Salute of the Month.” The “Salute of the Month” is featured on nfmsalute.com with a video biography about their service. In conjunction, NFM Lending donates to a military or Veteran non-profit in the Salute’s name; NFM Lending is proud to present $2,500 to Gary Sinise Foundation on behalf of Espinoza. 

Lance Corporal Espinoza was one of 13 U.S. servicemen and women killed on August 26, 2021, when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device at Kabul International Airport. 

The interview with Espinoza’s mother, Elizabeth Holguin, and his stepfather, Victor Dominguez, took place from their home in Laredo, TX, on September 24, 2021, less than one month after Espinoza and other military service members were lost. 

Espinoza had been moved from Jordan to Afghanistan to protect the Kabul airport and refugees just one week before the attack. Holguin expressed that her level of anxiety was elevated leading up to the day of the bombings. “When he was in Jordan, of course, I was worried. Like any deployment, as a mother, you worry. But he would FaceTime over there and he would say it was very calm. So I learned how to live with it. But once he moved to Afghanistan for that week, we were just counting the days for August 31 when they were all coming back.” 

In the interview, Dominguez described the day he found out that his stepson was among those killed. “I was here home and I turned on the TV and they mentioned what had happened. I remember [a U.S. General] saying that by midnight of that day, all the parents or husbands or wives related to the people would by then know who the victims were. I remember I stayed up till midnight and I remember walking from the sofa going to my bed and going, ‘We made it.’ And then we get the phone call.” 

Despite it all, Holguin is staying strong for her other children and finds comfort that her son and the other 13 fallen heroes were returned home. “He made me so proud, always did. He’s my American hero. He was doing what he loved so I can’t be prouder than that.”
