Joe Chafey

Choosing the Right Loan Officer Makes All the Difference in the World.

It is my goal to become the mortgage consultant who partners with you to obtain the real estate financing that meets your individual and unique needs. With 30+ years of mortgage lending experience, I have an extensive understanding of all facets of the business and can provide you with the information needed to make educated decisions. I have been with Big Valley Mortgage since 2000 and our parent company, American Pacific Mortgage Corporation, is both a Direct Lender and a Mortgage Broker. This means I have the backing of a company that has access to a vast array of products, competitive pricing and a commitment to superior customer service.

I have a proven track record of taking excellent care of my clients and a strong reputation based on my depth of knowledge, integrity and respect. It only takes a few minutes to determine the home price range that you may qualify for and develop a pre-approval letter to use when shopping for a home. Once your offer is accepted, I will work diligently to obtain the best loan package for your financial needs and guide you though the process with quick response times and great attention to detail. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you to achieve a positive home buying experience.
