OVM Financial welcomes Mortgage Loan Originator, Matt Redford to our corporate office in Chesapeake, VA. Matt will be working on OVM Financial Chairman, Chip Simkins’ team.
Matt Redford is a lifelong resident of Virginia Beach and former graduate of Virginia Tech. After college, Matt founded and managed eco-adventure company, Chesapean Outdoors. Chesapean Outdoors was the first company in Virginia to offer guided kayak dolphin tours. Twenty years later, they have proudly conducted more kayak dolphin tours than any other outfitter in the United States. Working in the eco-adventure industry allowed Matt to share his passion for adventure and the beauty of our environment with many valued clients and lifelong friends.
After taking on a business partner to manage the company, Matt decided to pursue a path in real estate where he became a Circle Of Excellence winner at the #1 RE/Max Team in Hampton Roads. During that time, he gained valuable insight into the importance of excellent communication between real estate agents, mortgage lenders, and their clients in order to ensure success at the closing table.
Since then, he also worked at TowneBank as a management associate in commercial lending and also as a business manager for a maritime security company. With years of business experience in various industries, Matt brings a wealth of knowledge in business development, expertise in real estate and banking, and a passion for excellence as a loan officer at OVM Financial.
In his spare time, Matt enjoys spending time at the beach with his wife Katie and two sons, Pearce and Caden.
