Business Development Veteran Finds New Home at Inclusive Mortgage Lender

Tempe, AZ – On Q Financial, Inc., one of the nation’s leading mortgage lenders, has recruited 18-year finance veteran, Sophia Ballinger as Regional Business Development Director in North Carolina.

“I’ve worked in finance for 18 years, and I’m always trying to push myself to take a new challenge and grow. When I came to On Q, I felt there was an incredible opportunity for growth, but more importantly, I found a home,” said Regional Business Development Director, Sophia Ballinger. “Another major reason I wanted to work at On Q is the autonomy to put together the best offers to our Mortgage Consultants. We’re able to construct the most compelling offers due to our flexibility, operational efficiency, and low overhead compared to other lenders.”

Ballinger succeeds at building long-lasting relationships and recruiting with the intent of putting people first. She’s eager to try new approaches to old and new challenges and understands that there’s never a stopping point to self-improvement. Ballinger is the newest voice set to take On Q to a new level and become the best mortgage lender in the nation.

“When I met with Sophia I knew On Q needed her. She’s passionate, intelligent, and dedicated to her career, but she was missing a home, a place where her passion and ideas could flourish. Now, that home is On Q. I can’t wait to see her take on new challenges and step into this role,” stated V.P. of Strategy and Business Development, Nick Suwanvichit.

Ballinger was born in Kingston, Jamaica and raised in Silver Spring, MD. She is married with 6 children and loves to spend time in the kitchen exploring different cuisines and bonding with her children.
