New American Funding Chief Operating Officer Christy Bunce has been named a 2021 Mortgage Star by Mortgage Women Magazine. The award recognizes the most talented, ambitious, innovative, and philanthropic women who are achieving excellence and making a difference in their industry.
Bunce came to New American Funding more than a decade ago to lead the company's Sales and Operations departments. Now a 23-year veteran of the mortgage industry, she helped transform the company into one of today’s top mortgage lenders.
As Chief Operations Officer, Bunce is involved with every aspect of the company’s day-to-day business. She has been instrumental in expanding the company’s retail operations and inside sales force, while leading the implementation of a truly unique culture known as NAF 360; an all-around commitment to caring about the company’s employees, business partners, and customers.
Through her vision, hard work, and determination, she guided company growth to 5,000+ employees with 186 locations in 32 states and a servicing portfolio of over 187,000 loans for $48.4 billion.
Under Bunce’s leadership, New American Funding has increased its lending volume significantly in each of the last several years. She has enacted manual underwriting procedures to ensure that the company is serving underserved communities.
Bunce also partners with company President, Patty Arvielo, in a career-development program that allows employees to discuss their career goals directly with the senior leadership. Through this program, management can mentor employees on a deserved path of promotion within the company.
“I am honored to be named a Mortgage Star,” said Bunce. “New American Funding has provided me many opportunities. I love working here and I take great pride in mentoring the next generation of mortgage stars.”
