Valon Mortgage expanding to Tempe to scale technology-enabled mortgage solution

Aug. 4, 2021

Tempe, AZ – Valon Mortgage, a residential mortgage tech startup reinventing the homeownership experience to keep the borrower better informed, announced its expansion to Tempe with the opening of a new customer support operation.

The company is immediately hiring 50 new team members in mortgage loan servicing and management roles, and will scale to 150 employees in the next year. The office will be located at 1501 W. Fountainhead Pkwy. 

“Over the last few years, the mortgage industry has been undergoing transformative changes — with refinances, record low interest rates, and COVID consumer protections, just to name a few. There’s never been a more exciting time to be a part of it,” said Shamim Rehman, VP/Director of Servicing at Valon. “We are thrilled to be expanding to the Phoenix market and to be growing our team locally, helping our borrowers navigate what is often one of the most significant transactions of their lives.”

The strategic geographic expansion to Tempe enables the technology company to better serve West Coast customers and provides ample opportunity to scale, thanks to the region’s thriving startup and venture capital ecosystem, coupled with Arizona’s supportive regulatory environment which helps companies succeed. 
 
“Tempe has become a destination for financial services companies. We welcome Valon Mortgage as not only an employer in our community but as a modern mortgage option for our residents. We wish the company great success,” said Tempe Mayor Corey Woods.

“Greater Phoenix has become a hub for innovative and entrepreneurial technology-focused companies that are committed to changing the game,” said Chris Camacho, president & CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “We are excited to be a partner in Valon Mortgage’s continued success and growth here in a region that wants to help startups and all companies succeed.”
