Jarad Vinup is an experienced mortgage sales and management professional.

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.

First time buying a home and Jarad made it a breeze. Was very informative and consistently was available to answer any question we had during the home buying process. Very happy to have been able to work with him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home!

The entire process was straightforward and well executed by the First Option team. I appreciated the efficient approval process and the speed in which the mortgage loan was closed. This was a very positive experience.

Jarad was great. As a first time home buyer, I was a little nervous about the process. Jarad put those nerves to rest by being professional, thorough, and letting me know exactly what I needed to do, in the easiest way possible. I highly recommend Jarad for all of your Mortgage needs. I will absolutely use again if I decide to move at some point in the future.

If I knew someone was going to try to buy a home I would recommend Jarad at First Option and his team of very good people. They worked with us and helped us to get through everything there is in getting a home loan. Awesome job everyone.

If you're in the market to buy a home, don't waste your time calling around to different lenders like I did. I spoke to three different offices until I found Jared. The first time I spoke to him, I knew he was a "GO GETTER". He devised a plan for my wife and I, and stayed with us along the way, even through the holidays. My family and I can't thank you enough. Jared is a true professional and a master at his craft.
