Nationwide Mortgage was established in 1998. We provide fast, flexible, equity based private mortgages for real estate throughout California and several other states. We assist real estate investors with equity cash out bridge loans, purchase loans, construction and other loan types. Nationwide is one of the few lenders around who can arrange a private hard money loan secured by a borrower’s primary residence. The Nationwide Team works harder, faster and more efficiently than most other private lenders.

Noelle Wheeler

President & Broker

A Canadian native, Noelle attended Ryerson Polytechnic Institute in Toronto where she obtained a Bachelor of Technology in Architectural Science. In 1990 she moved to Southern California and got her start in the mortgage industry. When the construction market was in a down-turn she ventured in to the mortgage industry as a loan processor. She worked for a few companies including DiTech. After several years of processing, she moved on to underwriting mortgage insurance for MGIC, and GE Capital. She then spent a number of years analyzing the risks of Fannie Mae type loans with Coast Federal Bank and Countrywide Home Loans, among others. She also had the opportunity to do post funding audit reviews which helped to round out her underwriting experience. In 1994 she obtained her Mortgage Broker License and in 1997 started Nationwide Mortgage. Over the last 16 years Noelle has been running the company with the assistance of exceptional people with aligned objectives of providing exceptional service. Nationwide Mortgage currently employs over 30 loan officers, 10 processors, and is licensed in California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and Virginia. Since its inception Nationwide has funded over $3 billion in mortgage loans. Historically the company has focused on conventional, FHA, and VA loans. After years of running her company Noelle realized there was a need to provide funding to borrowers that were outside of the standard conventional lending guidelines. At that point Noelle expanded Nationwide to add a Private Lending division that focuses primarily on funding loans for investors. She is also an accomplished pianist who enjoys yoga and snowboarding.

Highly Recommended


Miami, Florida

Nationwide was unbelievable! The attention to detail and personable agents made the experience seamless. They walked me through the process and were always available, which was something that was important to me. They explained step by step what would happen and would update me consistently from start to finish. Highly recommend them!

Nationwide did an excellent job

From beginning to end, Nationwide did an excellent job. They kept us updated on all that was going on, and our broker, Noelle Wheeler , was extremely knowledgeable. I would definitely use Nationwide again. Reference: Better Business Bureau
