    How Patty Arvielo Built New American Funding into a $900M a Month Corporation

    in Real Estate

    How Patty Arvielo Built New American Funding from Humble Beginnings into a $900 Million a Month Corporation.


    It’s important to give mention to Patty Arvielo’s humble beginnings in order to understand fully her unique business perspective and well recognized leadership role in the real estate and mortgage lending industry nationally. Born into a hard-working Mexican-American family from Southgate in L.A. County, California, Patty’s first exposure to the mortgage industry was as a young girl. At just 16, Patty landed a clerical position for TransUnion Credit. At 19, she was promoted into a sales position. Patty worked tirelessly to build real estate agent and community relationships and doing so, ignited a life-long passion for service and pursuit of self-made, enduring success.


    Patty’s extensive background in mortgage lending includes DE Underwriter and VA LAPP Certifications. Very early on, Patty pursued her own under-served Spanish-speaking markets well before they were a popular and sought after demographic. In 1997 Patty was invited to lead the operations unit of a start-up – New American Financial, until in 2003 when she and her husband Rick Arvielo, decided to launch their own mortgage company – New American Funding.


    Over a decade later, Patty has worked to transform New American Funding into a national mortgage lender and servicer that funds more than $900 million in home loans each month. Under her guidance, the company has brought the entire loan process in house - origination, processing, underwriting, funding and servicing. She continues to actively contribute to the bottom line, originating and booking nearly $3 million in home loans each month on her own, all while managing operations and sales for New American Funding’s headquarters, 90+ branches and 1800+ employees.

    After Raising $1.6 Billion for Communities, Firm Targets Community Broadband

    in Internet

    National Community Development Services (NCDS) leads multimillion-dollar economic development fundraising drives, and the firm is partnering with Craig Settles to bring NCDS’ success to broadband. Both believe that there are more people and organizations than communities realize that are able and willing to financially support broadband deployments to their communities.


    NCDS President Tom DiFiore presents highlights of the firm’s methodology that has raised over $1.6 billons for 500 communities in 46 states. Mr. Settles consulting expertise, philosophy and thought leadership in broadband strategy dovetails with NDCS in a four-step service that opens broadband funding opportunities as well as helps networks’ long-term financial successes.


    Many communities let the “lack” of money stymie their broadband dreams. Mr. Settles’ and NCDS’ lead communities through a creation orientation to produce an asset that boosts the economy, increases local government efficiency, improves healthcare delivery and transforms education. In addition, NCDS leaves a system in place to facilitate other community economic development fundraising projects.


    These combined services draw their origins from “Show Me the (Hidden) Money for Community Broadband,” Mr. Settles’ recent Community Broadband Snapshot Report.

    Guest: Noelle Meade-Izzi

    in Culture

    This is a replay of our show with Noelle Meade-Izzi that originally aired on April 4, 2014.  Noelle is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, speaker, award-winning graphic designer and renowned Natu-journalist. Her book, The Hummingbird That Answered My Heart’s Calling, is a testament to the power of nature and its ability to teach, heal, and re-connect humans to their true human nature.  This gift book is filled with over 40 full-color photographs and a custom designed book cover and interior pages. To her delight, a segment on her experience with Artemis, the hummingbird, was featured in the United States Humane Society (USHS) publication, “All Animals.”  But Noelle’s commitment to nature goes well beyond her work as a Natu-journalist. She is leading a crusade to recognize and protect the four POWER POLLINATORS ---bees, birds, butterflies and bats.  As the Pollinator Queen, she is a special advocate for the pollinators, offering advice on how to build a hummingbird-friendly backyard habitant, ways to “give back” to the bee nation, methods for protecting and supporting these essential creatures that are critical to our food chain.  Noelle’s immediate focus is the bee population which has been decimated by a mysterious die-off not fully identified by scientists. Her goal is to help people see bees for the valued partners they are: harmonious, integrated, unified creatures working tirelessly for the greater good. She unceasingly works to educate as many adults and children as possible, using her company, Beenevolent® as a tool for funding more research; to serve and give back. Noelle perceives the loss of any aspect of nature a spiritual loss as well as a natural one. She spreads her message by Spiritual Pollination.

    About The Black Family Technology Awareness Association (BFTAA)


    As the Black Community grows in size and influence, it is vital for this group and the nation that the gap in technological empowerment between Blacks and the U.S. mainstream be closed.

    These "gaps" cause the Black Community to literally become left behind in many situations of life, including advancements at place of employment, benefits in health care, funding for education, home-ownership or automobiles

    Clio Express: A Conversation with James & Jean Jones

    in Lifestyle

     


    In 1953, seven years before the formal launch of the sit-in movement, students from Morgan State College were lining up daily at the lunch counter of Read’s drugstore. There, some manager or anxious waitress would recite the Maryland trespassing statute and ask them to leave.   That was the beginning of the "modern student civil disobedience through sit-ins.  However, in 1947, several hundred Morgan State students demonstrated in Annapolis for equitable funding from the state. In 1948, Morgan students began to picket performances at Baltimore’s Ford’s Theatre, where black patrons were compelled to use a rear staircase and sit in the second balcony.     Ford’s Theatre was desegregated in 1952 after years of relentless picketing. Additionally, thirty-seven Read’s drugstores opened their lunch counters to blacks in 1955. Four years later, the protesters forced the desegregation of the chain of Arundel ice cream shops. And, the die was caste for the Civil Rights contributions of Morgan State students which brought James and Jean Jones together in their personal involvement in the movement.    James and Jean were childhood neighbors who metriculated through the educational systems together and eventually built a family and life together.  A great look at what happens in the trenches and the lives of civil rights warriors.
