Powerful Women of Mortgage Banking 2021


Natalie Arshakian

Director of LockCentral, Mortgage Capital Trading

How did you get into this field? What keeps you motivated to stay?

I entered the field in 2012 after having worked in finance. I fell into the mortgage industry by chance, but after joining MCT, I realized how much there is to learn about the mortgage industry and specifically the nuances of the secondary mortgage market. The possibilities to learn, adapt and grow within this industry continue to motivate me to stay.

What do you hope to see in the future of the mortgage banking industry?

As far as the future of the mortgage banking industry, I look forward to seeing fresh faces and fresh ideas. I’d also love to see more collaboration of secondary mortgage market leaders, investors, and technology platforms to be able to enhance the user experience and offer more efficient processes industry wide.

What is your opinion on the importance of having female leaders in Mortgage Banking?

Having female leaders in Mortgage Banking, as well as in any industry, is essential. Women are natural leaders due to their empathy and resilience. They are strong and can adapt quickly to any situation. It’s so great to see so many powerful and influential female leaders in our industry who can continue to inspire future female leaders.

What do you consider your greatest success?

I consider my greatest success at MCT to been able to teach and mentor new analysts. It makes me happy to see so many of our analysts continuing to flourish within the Lock Desk as their experience grows, as well as in more expanded roles within the company.

Co-Founder and President, New American Funding

How did you get into this field? What keeps you motivated to stay?

I fell into this field when I was 16 years old. I landed an entry-level clerical position at TransUnion Credit. I was hired at a prominent mortgage company, where I rose through the ranks from a clerical loan opener to underwriter, processor, and eventually to branch manager and assistant vice president. 

I’m motivated to stay in this field because I see the industry pivoting at a fast pace and want to be part of that change. Having personally championed career opportunities for women and minorities, it excites me to see that these voices are being represented in our company’s decision-making. 

What do you hope to see in the future of the mortgage banking industry?

I hope to see more women founders and CEOs from more diverse backgrounds. Mortgage is about welcoming a diverse group of borrowers and our office demographics should match our customer base. I would like to see lenders continue to reach out to the underserved communities as we have done. It has made a huge difference in many lives. 

Buying a home has many benefits. It’s one of the best ways to build generational wealth and it helps establish stable communities. I hope more lenders begin to see the opportunity that exists to help shape the future of our industry. 

What is your opinion on the importance of having female leaders in Mortgage Banking?

With women making up many of the employees of mortgage companies, there needs to be leadership throughout the industry that reflects its members. Female leadership can understand and represent these unique perspectives and dreams. A successful woman truly embodies what anyone can aspire to, because once they see success, they can be success. 

What do you consider your greatest success?

Success is really defined by the impact one life has on another. As a Hispanic woman, I know first-hand the challenges that I’ve had to overcome. I’ve been fortunate enough to have learned from great role models and have combined that with the resolve to succeed. This has allowed me some keen insights into mentoring the next generation of mortgage leaders. Through my experiences, I can help others find their own path to success. I have broken through…
