NOREDTAPE is a Nationwide Wholesale Jumbo and Non-QM Direct Lender located in Calabasas California, which is part of a 20+ year old mortgage banking firm. We well capitalized and works with the Nation’s largest loan aggregators that manage billions of dollars of their own funds, who are not subject to margin calls. This means NOREDTAPE was built to be here another 20 more years.

All loans are underwritten in-house with no Investor approvals, which enables exceptional turn times where most loans are closing in less than 30 days. Over 30% of NOREDTAPE’s fundings are made with in-house exceptions, which means we know a good loan when we see it. We’re passionate about non-agency loans and pride ourselves on closing deals that many lenders pass on. The other 70% close with us because of our competitive pricing, aggressive guidelines and fast turn times.
