Laurel Caliendo
President & Chief Executive Officer of Village Mortgage 

 

For the past twenty years, Village Mortgage has grown steadily and has earned a well-respected reputation in the mortgage, finance and real estate industries throughout New England. Over the years, the company has increased the footprint of borrowers it serves by delivering on its “Welcome Home” philosophy.


“Welcome Home” exemplifies our commitment to exceeding customer expectations by engaging an accessible, dynamic, and collaborative team committed to helping every borrower navigate their own avenue to homeownership. Village Mortgage Company opened doors in 1996 with the goal of delivering quality mortgage financing to all of our borrowers.
After two decades of operation, our commitment to providing every member of our community with a personalized mortgage experience has never been stronger.


In 2016, we launched our L.I.F.E. Lending initiative which aims to provide low to moderate-income borrowers with the widest
array of mortgage products and homeownership education available. We are continually looking for new ways to meet the needs of our borrowers.


Our headquarters are located in Avon, Connecticut and we currently have sixteen branch offices throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. We are licensed to lend in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Rhode Island, Florida and Nevada. Village Mortgage Company is a direct seller/servicer with both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as well as for the State of Connecticut’s CHFA program. We also specialize in VA, USDA, FHA, 203 Rehabilitation and Homestyle mortgages.  We have two independent divisions of loan operations: retail and wholesale. We pride ourselves on having long-standing relationships with broker partners who embody our core values. 

 

Our customer-focused loan servicing sets us apart from our competitors. We look forward to our borrowers making their payments directly to us and over the years have built enduring relationships with many of our clients. Our Welcome Home philosophy makes for a personal and rewarding experience for both the borrower and Village Mortgage as we continue our commitment to help put people into the homes of their dreams.
