I am a seasoned veteran (code for “old”) of the mortgage industry. Started in 1991, opened our own brokerage in 2000, and in 2020 we re-branded as “The Yampolsky Team” when my son Jeremy joined the family business. We love helping clients and their families navigate through their mortgage options to buy and refinance their homes. Getting a mortgage is a big deal and I really enjoy walking through the process with our clients so that they feel good about their decisions. We treat our clients with integrity and respect…the way I’d want to be treated too.
I grew up in Omaha, NE, attended college at the University of Arizona—aka the Harvard of the west—and graduated with degrees in finance and real estate. I’ve been living in Scottsdale since 1990, have been married to the same wonderful woman since 1991, have 3 great kids, and Bentley (our English bulldog). I enjoy spending time with my family and walking – my running days are over!
I’ve been in the mortgage industry for a long time! Started in 1989, we opened our own brokerage in 2000, and I have had the pleasure helping thousands of families to buy and refinance their homes. I hold all my clients near and dear to my heart and treat them like I would my own family.
I was raised in the great state of Arizona, attended college at Arizona State University – FORKS UP! I enjoy spending time with my boys, my Katie girl and friends! I like to stay active, have fun, and surround myself with good people, great food, and soulful music.
Originally from Southern California (not my fault I got out ASAP), I am firmly planted in the West Valley. And while you may see me out and about with my wife and two kids, enjoying Lake Pleasant or volunteering in the nursery or on the soccer field at church, don’t be fooled by my casual, easy-going style.
I am passionate about finding creative financing solutions for Friends, Family, and clients no matter how complex. I utilize my dedication to learning and my can-do attitude to provide excellent service to the families I work with, providing a seamless home financing experience with the help of the amazing team at Orion Mortgage.
By staying up-to-date on the latest complexities of mortgage lending, technology and cutting-edge marketing techniques for real estate, I have become a vital resource for homebuyers, homeowners, and Realtors alike.
When people think about getting a home loan, most think of big bank institutions. That’s not us. We are a local, family-run business (as you can tell by the last names) that strives to be not the biggest, but the best mortgage company in town. Buying a house and refinancing are both big financial decisions, so it is important that you find a mortgage broker you can trust. I work towards making the loan process easy to understand and making sure all clients’ questions are answered.
A rare Phoenix native, I decided to spread my wings and travel all the way to Tucson, AZ where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Business Management and minored in Sports Management (we can talk ball any time). My time outside the office is typically spent watching AZ sports teams or seeing shows at theaters around the valley.

I started in the mortgage industry as a loan officer assistant. After learning the ropes, I took the test and became a loan officer and now I’m part of an amazing team at Orion. I am a nurturer by nature. Buying a home can be stressful. I love taking that stress out of the process and building a lifelong relationship with my clients. I love when clients become friends – and friends become family.
I grew up on the east coast and moved to Goodyear, Arizona in 2009. I enjoy spending time with my husband, three awesome kids and the newest addition to our family, my grandson! When we aren’t on the ballfield with our youngest son or doing home renovations, we love to travel!
I have been in the mortgage industry since 1996, starting as a loan processor and then took that knowledge and experience to become a loan officer and ran my own branch successfully for 8 years. I thoroughly enjoy helping clients, families, and friends with their buying or refinancing mortgage needs, walking them through the process, and getting them the best possible product.
I am originally from Latrobe, PA, and yes, a huge Pittsburgh Steeler fan! I grew up in Tempe, Arizona and attended Arizona State University on a Tennis Scholarship and graduated with a Communication degree. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and hiking with my “fur baby”, Harley.
