The NOVA® philosophy is centered around the word, "Yes", both internally and externally. The company strives to make the dream of home ownership a reality for its customers, and relies on the foundation of its employees to do so. Founded over 35 years ago by Ray Desmond, NOVA® was one of the first mortgage brokers in the country. Ray noticed that borrowers were limited to taking the financing available by their own banking institutions and approached banks, asking them if he could sell their loans to borrowers interested in financing, allowing consumers to take advantage of the best interest rate available.
In 1995, Ray asked Jon Volpe, a former NFL player and engineering graduate of Stanford University, to join NOVA®. In 1999, the company became a Mortgage Bank and today funds over 99% of its loans. In 2002, Jon became Chief Executive Officer. Since then, NOVA® has grown exponentially. With 20 offices throughout Arizona, Colorado and Nevada, NOVA's® reputation of providing excellent customer service and competitive loan products is quickly spreading through the 14 states it is licensed to lend in.
