Doorway Home Loans, a DBA of International City Mortgage, Inc. and certified Ginnie/Fannie lender, is pleased to welcome one of the mortgage industry’s top-performing secondary marketing experts, James Hedvall, as its Chief Capital Markets Officer. He joins Doorway at a time of significant expansion for the company, which has doubled its production team in the last 60 days.  Mr. Hedvall has a well-earned reputation for attracting top producers and branches, thanks to his intense focus on delivering market-leading rates and the broadest possible diversity of products.

Before Doorway Home Loans, Mr. Hedvall spent the last 23 years managing Secondary and Capital Markets. He has held key positions including Analyst, Trader, Secondary Marketing Manager, Director, and Chief Capital Markets Officer at various wholesale, correspondent lending, and retail mortgage bankers such as Mann Mortgage LLC, Loan Source, Residential Pacific Mortgage, LoanCity LLC, and Provident Funding Associate L.P. He also worked for Rob Chrisman, the consultant and a leading authority in the mortgage industry, to evaluate the Secondary Market risk for warehouse banks, depositories, and credit unions. Mr. Hedvall received his degree in economics from the University of California, Riverside.


 “We are tremendously excited to have James aboard. His knowledge and background will help accelerate our growth and market position,” said Matt Danilowicz, CEO of Doorway Home Loans. “He understands the value that Secondary, Servicing, and Product drives to our sales team, and while his main focus will concentrate on Capital Markets activities, as a member of our executive team, he will work to help Doorway remain competitive, balanced, and prepared for any interest rate market.”


“What brought me to Doorway Home Loans was the people. This is a people industry really, and we should never stray too far from that concept. Support our Loan Officers, support our borrowers, and support the people at corporate who make it happen. Those are the key values a successful mortgage bank must make a priority to separate itself from other originators,” said James. “I’ve helped several mortgage companies navigate turbulent waters and difficult financial times during my career, and the one common denominator between success and failure during these times IS the level of support that is extended through the transaction. Take care of our corporate staff, take care of our sales partners, and provide superior support to our customers, and everything else just sort of takes care of itself.”  


In addition to roles, Mr. Hedvall is an active member of the Mortgage/Housing community, consistently offering his insights and expertise in Secondary and Capital Markets. For his commitment, he was named the MPA (Mortgage Professional America) as one of the 2021 Housing Industry Icon distinguished winners in the mortgage industry. This recognition is given to mortgage professionals who have moved the industry forward and improved the home-buying and lending processes.
