Boasting nearly 20 years of experience in mortgage banking, Robert Painter is not only one of the most knowledgeable loan originators in the business, but also one of the most successful in the country. He has been New American Funding’s top volume loan producer for seven consecutive years, closing $162 million in residential home loans in 2016. His consistent level of high production comes as a result of focusing on his strengths while relying on a dedicated team to provide backup support in every other area. As a result, Painter has qualified yearly for New American Funding’s President’s Council, an elite group of top-performing originators.

Painter specializes in high-end, expanded-guideline financing that requires out-of-the-box thinking. Due to his extensive knowledge of a wide range of loan programs, he’s become a go-to resource for a broad spectrum of borrowers, whether they’re making a first-time transaction or closing a jumbo purchase. Over the past two decades, Painter has built a solid business by establishing long-standing relationships with clients who have repeatedly turned to him for service. He attributes this loyalty to being available when customers have questions, being a problem-solver when challenges arise and having the ability to break down complex terms into easily understood concepts.
