How It All Began

Like the beginnings of many successful companies, our founder A.W. Pickel had a vision of what a mortgage experience should be like. Prior to founding LeaderOne Financial in 1992, he noticed that mortgage companies were not treating people the way they should be treated. He was raised in the midwest where your word was your word, and respect for the other person is a way of life. This is why he created LeaderOne Financial; to give you the type of mortgage experience that makes buying or refinancing a home less stressful and much easier.
