Since its inception in 2006,
VIP has taken a different approach to mortgage lending. An approach that allows for employees to have a voice as they adhere to the “lead up” philosophy.
Jay Barbour, founder and owner of VIP Mortgage always envisioned creating a company for tenured and seasoned mortgage professionals that runs efficiently to provide customers with the ultimate lending experience. As a military veteran, Jay sees things differently from his mortgage industry counterparts. He prides himself on having built a company that not only encourages employee optimism, but also one that celebrates spirited fun, family, and fellowship. Yes, VIP seeks top talent, but it is the spirit of teamwork that sets it apart. Wherever you find a VIP location, you will see employees volunteering their time to a variety of charitable causes and helping others to succeed.
The company has grown organically by creating an environment that fosters transparency and trust, demonstrating every day how to genuinely care for and listen to the people it serves.
Story Of VIP
“The Strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member, is the team.” – Phil Jackson
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
As both a mortgage banker and broker, VIP Mortgage 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. The goal is to stand out above the crowd as the best, not the biggest, mortgage lender in the industry.
Leadership starts from the ground up through encouraging employees to discover their personal and professional passions in order to create a balance in life
