AFR Wholesale, a division of American Financial Resources, Inc., announced the opening of its first regional office, located in Scottsdale. AFR Wholesale, the wholesale/correspondent division of American Financial Resources, Inc., serves a nationwide network of more than 1,000 wholesale/correspondent brokers making it one of the largest providers of these services in the country.
AFR Wholesale officially opened their doors in Scottsdale, AZ with a grand opening party last week, at their new East Chaparral Road location. The launch event was kicked off with a ribbon cutting by Corey Dubnoff, CAO and Founder of American Financial Resources, Inc. (AFR Wholesale parent company). Other key company executives were also in attendance, including Laura Brandao, Chief Operating Officer; Jennifer LoBianco, Chief Marketing Officer; Bill Packer, Chief Information Officer and Rob Vignato, West Coast Operations Manager – Wholesale Operations.
Vignato will be responsible for the daily operations of the Scottsdale location. Expected to grow to upwards of 50 in the next few years, the office will also serve as a training facility for those employees like AEs (salespeople) or underwriters that could eventually be field based.
“Scottsdale is one of the fastest growing areas, and continually ranked among the countries “Most Livable Cities,” says Corey Dubnoff, Chief Administrative Officer of American Financial Resources, Inc. “We felt it was essential to have a West Coast presence for AFR Wholesale, as we continue to grow and develop this innovative wholesale mortgage brand.”
Before opening their first regional office, AFR Wholesale has been operating exclusively out of their corporate headquarters in Parsippany, NJ, as part of parent company, American Financial Resources, a mortgage lender doing business for twenty years.
