Our Story

Founded by mortgage visionaries


American Portfolio Mortgage Corporation (APMC) was founded in 1996 by Paul Kessel and Scott Vorreyer—mortgage visionaries who still lead the company today. The company initially focused on buying and selling pools of mortgages in the secondary market.


In 2007, building upon its success in the mortgage market, the company expanded its focus and began investing in seasoned mortgages. APMC also launched a full-service retail origination platform, which originated agency, government and investor portfolio loans on a multi-state basis, through a growing team of professional mortgage loan officers and staff.



A collaborative team of top professionals


Paul and Scott envisioned a high-achieving team of real estate and banking professionals, pooling their collective talents and expertise. The two drew on their experience in those industries, painstakingly assembling a formidable team of experts.


True to their vision, American Portfolio Mortgage company has become a premier independent lender, focusing on providing a smooth and satisfying mortgage experience for its customers. In order to ensure that its team continues to deliver at the highest level, APMC requires its professionals to commit to expanding their training and certification.


At American Portfolio Mortgage company, we believe our thousands of satisfied customers are the best measure of our success.
