Matt Reyes with New American Funding discusses the Buyer Accepted Program

Loan Officer Matt Reyes with New American Funding joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to talk about popular loan products and the new Buyer Accepted cash buyer program. Reyes joins Carol Morgan on the All About Real Estate segment and shares additional details about the program that allows buyers to make competitive cash offers.

With seven years of industry experience under his belt, Reyes was inspired to become a loan officer after a positive experience purchasing his first home. His history of financial education served him well as he took a deep dive into the world of home loans. Reyes began his journey with New American Funding in what they called “set up” back in the day stacking files and ordering third-party information such as title appraisals, title work and flood certifications. For the past three years, he has held the role of loan officer for one of the largest lenders, with a consistent stream of five-star reviews!

Reyes said, “I’ve kind of been in each different role building up into the point of going out on my own and starting to originate loans with clients directly.”

New American Funding is one of the largest privately-owned, direct mortgage lenders in the United States. Heavily involved in the industry, the company was founded by husband-and-wife duo, Rick and Patty Arvielo. A self-serviced lender, New American Funding lends directly to its clients and borrowers, servicing most of its offered products. Over time, the company has grown to include over 160 branches and more than 4,000 employees.

Reyes said, “We’ve really become a leader in the loan lending space, combining a streamlined loan process with cutting edge technology and [creating] exceptional experience and service for clients.”

When asked the key to his consistent five-star review ratings, Reyes responded that it is important to place oneself in the consumer’s shoes. By providing good communication and the necessary support, realizing the dream of homeownership and curating a solid lender-borrower relationship has never been easier!

Reyes said, “Try to make it personal, not transactional.”

With the average home price in Atlanta up 28 percent, loan products popular with homebuyers this year include conventional products, as well as the Buyer Accepted program for cash buyers. The initiative transforms a homebuyer qualified for a VA loan into a cash buyer, providing many perks in today’s market. Reyes shared he has seen numerous jumbo and non-conforming loans, which include loans above previously discussed limits and additional options for homebuyers who do not fit traditional lending molds.
