Jarad began his career in the mortgage industry in 2004 at American Equity Mortgage. In his two years with this company, he managed to break company records. This early taste of success evoked in Vinup a passion for the business. In 2006, Vinup was recruited by First Option Mortgage where his passion and drive quickly propelled him into a management position at First Option’s corporate branch located in Atlanta, Georgia.
Vinup then had the opportunity to relocate to his home state by becoming the branch manager of the Indianapolis, Indiana branch. Because of the Indy branch’s success, the location was eligible for expansion. Vinup capitalized on this opportunity by opening an office in Columbus, Ohio and becoming the area president of both branches, which are continuously among First Option Mortgage’s top branches by averaging $10-12 million in loan volume per month.
Jarad’s goal is to share with his branches his knowledge of the business, passion, and positive attitude.

Jarad and Brandon at First Option Mortgage were extremely professional, knowledgeable, and helpful during the entire process. My husband and I were guided with ease and they were always quick to respond if we ever had a question.

Jarad, Brandon, and their team at FirstOption Indy were nothing but spectacular in helping my wife and I close on our first home! They were very open for questions and responded very quickly. They really make you feel like family, and want to see you reach your dreams!

My husband and I were very discouraged after speaking with other mortgage lenders, but Jarad was great and gave us hope. In the end, we have a home that we love and are so excited to call ours!!!
