We bring simplicity, dependability, and humanity to homeownership

We’re on a mission to empower every homeowner. We believe the journey of home ownership starts when you get your keys, but lasts far beyond. We’re creating a world where home ownership comes with ease, security, and financial know-how. We illuminate every step of the financial journey, and will be there for you no matter what life puts on your path.

We’re challenging the industry’s status quo​

The servicing industry’s antiquated technology and inefficient practices mean that homeowners ultimately pay the price with their money, time, and energy. By putting homeowners first and developing modern solutions, Valon is changing the industry and helping all stakeholders involved win.

“Currently, the largest mortgage servicing software controls more than half of all U.S. residential loans, effectively creating a monopoly in the market. This stranglehold has driven servicing costs up nearly 250% in the past decade, and the fees are passed on directly to the borrower. We created Valon as a challenger brand to address the extreme need for an updated, technology-enabled alternative to keep the borrower better informed.”

“Homeowners are faced with clumsy websites, call centers, and often, misinformation. In Valon, they have a trusted software-driven advisor who can provide clear, transparent, regulatory compliant information in good times and bad - without needing to pick up the phone”
