Just like he does as a Division I college football referee in his hours outside of the office, Todd H. LaPenta calls it like he sees it when structuring real estate financing options. The Private Mortgage Banker and his team at The Todd LaPenta Group offer candid yet expert coaching so that individuals and families can buy a home, purchase a vacation retreat or invest in property. Regardless of clients’ banking, insurance, investment and consumer finance needs, these professionals are up to the challenge. Although LaPenta can undoubtedly link his achievements to years of experience – he has 23 while his group boasts a collective 70 – he attributes his sustained success to a commitment to exceptional customer service that stands out among the competition.
“I make sure to present my clients various financing options that will maximize their real estate investment,” says LaPenta, a University of Florida graduate. His group’s high-touch amenities extend well beyond simply financing. His is a Wells Fargo Single Source connection to an array of resources that not only include mortgage products and programs, but also support banking and wealth management needs. This concierge service that LaPenta provides clients has earned him membership in the prestigious Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Leaders Club for four out of the past five years. The distinction recognizes him as one of the top 125 originators company-wide.
LaPenta’s desire to create an unrivaled world-class mortgage banking experience inspires him as much today as it did when he first launched his career. His winning results, which include funding $59 million in volume in 2014 and $80 million the year prior, speak to both his determination and clients’ satisfaction. He has also regularly ranked among the top three originators in Florida over the past five years. And while LaPenta can be seen on television enforcing the rules at prestigious athletic conferences like The American, he makes clear that his real estate career will always come first. “Helping clients finance the home where they plan to raise their family brings me a lot of joy.”
