Daniel Sa, the Division President of NFM Lending, is not just an industry expert; he is also a trusted guide in the complex world of mortgage finance. With an 18-year career in the mortgage industry that started right out of college in 2005, Daniel knows the challenges that homebuyers face, and has made it his mission to make the process simpler and more understandable for everyone.

From humble beginnings as a Loan Originator managing a small team, Daniel showed his commitment to customer service and industry innovation. By 2013, he established his own mortgage branch that emphasized a more personal, referral-based purchase model.

In less than three years, Daniel expanded his team to 25 members and saw branch originations rise to a notable 200 million. His collaboration with NFM Lending in 2016 birthed the Great Lakes Division, an entity he guided to impressive growth, reaching over 100 professionals across multiple branches. In 2020 and 2021, the division achieved remarkable volumes of 560 million and 602 million respectively (72% purchase). This performance positioned NFM Great Lakes as a leading mortgage company in central Ohio and fourth overall, as confirmed by the Columbus Business Journal.

Beyond his leadership role, Daniel is a mentor and guide for individuals making their way through the financial aspects of homeownership. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or looking to refinance, Daniel and his team are equipped to assist. His guidance has led thousands of clients to successful mortgage outcomes, and he’s passionate about helping others realize their homeownership dreams.

NFM Lending is a top-tier mortgage company, recognized as a seller servicer for Fannie, Freddie, and Ginnie. We achieved a total volume of 6.8 billion in 2022, which placed us among the top 20 mortgage companies nationwide, according to Mortgage Executive Magazine.

Daniel, along with his team, looks forward to providing you with exceptional service, in-depth industry knowledge, and the trusted guidance necessary to make your mortgage experience as smooth as possible. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or considering refinancing options, we’re here to help navigate your path home. Let’s begin this journey together.
