Paul Volpe
Vice President - Senior Loan Officer

About Paul Volpe

Every loan officer will tell you they provide the "best" customer service; but in this case it's a guarantee rather than a just a catch phrase. Following graduation from U of A in 2001, Paul was mentored by his brother, Jon, CEO of NOVA HOME LOANS who, since 2001, ranked five times as America's #1 Loan Originator by Mortgage Originator Magazine, Broker Magazine, and Origination News. Paul served as the Volpe Team's "right hand" during those years. He soon achieved his own mark of success in the mortgage industry by thinking "outside the box" with difficult-to-place loans that other lenders simply couldn't put together. In 2013, Paul ranked #1 nationally and has been #1 in Arizona for the last several years. In addition to his business acumen, Paul is one of the nicest and most engaging financial problem solvers you will ever meet. He is a person you can imagine referring all your clients to with total confidence. When asked about the most essential ingredient in his transaction with clients, Paul names "integrity" as the single most important gift he can offer his clients in representing their needs. Paul now manages the Volpe Team with ease and has maintained the standard established by Jon to under promise and over deliver.
