Let’s Get Acquainted.

Since our visionary opening in 2001, OVM Financial has taken what the mortgage industry has traditionally done and flipped it upside down. We’re taking the focus away from just numbers and directing attention to people and investments. Our Loan Officers share these values and our rich culture of long-term satisfaction.

We are not like any other mortgage company. We have modeled OVM Financial to have a corporate culture that embraces entrepreneurship. By carefully scaling our operations and support staff, we manage to provide the same excellent service offered by larger banks and lenders without the "Red Tape."

Company Culture Redefined.

At OVM Financial, we don’t just describe our company culture with fuzzy corporate buzzwords; we live it. Just take a walk through the halls of our offices, and you’ll see what it means to redefine “company culture.” Work-life balance begins in the office. Want to join a team that knows your name, rejoices in your success, and picks you up when times are tough? Come aboard, and help us continue to redefine “company culture.”

Our employees overall work experience directly translates to our clients’ level of satisfaction with their lending experience. That’s why our team is our most significant investment.

Are you ready to redefine the mortgage industry with an elite team by your side?

7What types of credit requirements do you have?
We do not advertise or promote any "lowest credit score" approach. While we can accommodate borrowers with varying credit scores using the VA and FHA guidelines, we prefer to use credit supplement programs like credit counselling, rapid re-scores and what-if scenarios. This results in better borrowers and really benefits our clients and partners by providing long-term value.

This means any challenging files, questionable scenarios or conditions can be addressed directly with a veteran underwriter prior to loan submission or even during pre-qualification without waiting days for feedback.

We have a fully staffed Marketing Department with Designers, Project Managers, a Social Media Manager and a Lead Scrubber to support our Loan Officers and their referral partners with any digital or print marketing and promotions.
