“We are thrilled to be expanding to the Phoenix market and to be growing our team locally, helping our borrowers navigate what is often one of the most significant transactions of their lives,” Shamim Rehman, vice president and director of servicing at Valon Mortgage said in the release.
The company’s software provides clear, transparent and regulatory compliant information without borrowers needing to pick up the phone, according to the release.

“We welcome Valon Mortgage as not only an employer in our community but as a modern mortgage option for our residents,” Woods said. “We wish the company great success.”
