2018 Agents Choice Awards—Loan Officer of the Year: Todd LaPenta, Caliber Home Loans

by Miami Agent

Todd LaPenta
Sales Manager, Caliber Home Loans

Todd LaPenta’s vision statement has always been to redefine world-class mortgage banking. Since 1992, LaPenta has guided over 3,200 clients through customized solutions, helping them achieve their short- and long-term home ownership goals. He is equally proud to have provided over $1.5BN in mortgages over his career for purchase and refinance transactions. After a distinguished 25-year career at Wells Fargo Private Mortgage Banking, LaPenta has thoroughly enjoyed my transition as a sales manager to Caliber Home Loans in February 2017.  This move allowed him to expand his Realtor base by offering advanced originating capabilities, which now include portfolio products to assist affluent clients with Jumbo loans with low down payments,  foreign national lending, products to assist clients with less-than-perfect credit, and a vast array of other options to fit nearly every buyer’s goals for home ownership.

“It is a true honor to be recognized by Miami Agent Magazine as one of Miami’s top loan officers for 2018.  I have long held the belief that my customers and referral partners deserve a world class mortgage lending experience.  I enjoy partnering with Realtor professionals to complement the exceptional service they deliver to all of their clients each and every day.  I am sincerely appreciative to receive this acknowledgment from the real estate community that I have worked so hard to serve over the past 27 years and am humbled to have received your vote.”

Finalists: Derek Fertig (Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation), Patricia Gonzalez (IberiaBank)
