The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.

Jay Barbour, founder of VIP, had always envisioned creating a company for tenured and seasoned mortgage professionals that collectively run efficiently to provide customers with the ultimate experience, and VIP Mortgage was born. He created VIP based on what the industry was lacking – HEART – and continues to test the boundaries.
According to Jay, “Leadership starts from the ground up through encouraging employees to discover their personal and professional passions in order to create a balance in life.”
VIP Mortgage has grown from a handful of employees in 2006, funding $31 million annually to more than 420 employees funding upwards of $1.75 billion. Headquartered in Scottsdale, AZ, the Company spans 16 states – AZ, CA, CO, FL, HI, IL, IN, MI, MN, NE, NM, OR, TX, UT, WA, and WI – and 25 licensed locations. As both a mortgage banker and broker, VIP offers in-house underwriting, funding and processing, and presents a fully transparent origination platform, ensuring all loans succeed. With access to a wide range of mortgage sources, VIP is dedicated to finding the right loan with the best rates, terms and costs to meet each customer’s unique needs.
Our goal is to stand out above the crowd as the best, not the biggest, mortgage lender in the industry.
