Gina Spearman with New American Funding

Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio’s sponsor for 2020 joins co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick in this New Year’s Day Radio episode. Southeast Regional Manager of New American Funding Gina Spearman is in studio to discuss the company and the new sponsorship.

Spearman is a 25-year veteran of the mortgage lending business and a business partner of Kelly Allison for 20 years! Three years ago, Spearman, Allison and the rest of their team joined New American Funding to help grow the southeast market.

“I think what we’re most proud of is the fact that we have really been able to provide homeownership in so many communities throughout the southeast,” said Spearman. “We are honored and proud to say that along with a lot of our great referral partners, Realtors, builders and the homebuying community that we provided homeownership for over 8,000 families in 2019.”

New American Funding realizes that providing a mortgage is a transaction, but also understand it is a process that provides homeownership and helps fulfil dreams. New American Funding is a national and direct lender, meaning they hold the mortgages themselves. In most cases, buyers and borrowers make payments directly to New American Funding as opposed to a bank branch or chain. Spearman dives into the benefits of being a direct lender including the following.

  • Customer Service
  • Accessibility and Interaction with the Original Loan Officer
  • Referral Partners Appear on Mortgage Statement
  • Increased Branding for Referral Partners
  • Stability and Peace of Mind for Borrowers

New American Funding serves several market sectors due to its abundance of resources and the product mix available to them as a national organization. From serving the first-time homebuyer who needs extra guidance, to helping clients with an in-house rescore program designed for borrowers who have had a rough time or extenuating circumstances, New American Funding handles a myriad of different cases. Priding themselves in being a one-stop-shop, New American Funding can handle any and all lending needs.

“We try to put our money where our mouth is,” said Spearman. “If we say we are committed to homeownership to those that are deserving, then you have to have the tools and the resources in-house to make that happen. You can’t be a cherry picker and just provide loans to people with an 800-credit score with 20 percent down.”

Not only does New American Funding provide all conventional loans including FHA, VA and USDA, but it also offers any down payment assistance programs available in the market. One of the more popular products, especially among first-time homebuyers, is the 100 percent financing program.
