About Us

At Capella Mortgage we think we have developed a top level team that are very knowledgeable in hard money and AltQM/NonQM loans.  We lend on commercial real estate and residential real estate.  We lend on owner occupied and investor properties.  We save deals, pull off the impossible every week, and have earned the trust of thousands of investors and borrowers.  And we work really hard and spend a lot of money to make sure that we get it done right.

Corinne Cordon – Owner and Chief Executive Officer Corinne (speaks Spanish). 

Corinne has in excess of 20 years experience in the mortgage industry. She manages the multi million dollar loans with Matthew, as well as the construction and commercial loans. She also directs the development of the software systems and is always looking finding ways to make the process more streamlined for the investors, borrowers, and staff.  Corinne’s principal job is to speak to new borrowers and determine if their request is something that our investors would want to fund.  Corinne also then reviews the loan data for compliance and accuracy before the processors pull the loan docs. Corinne manages the interactions with attorneys and vendors and continuously studies and researches the compliance issues mortgage companies face every day.  Her hobby was dancing for many years and she is proficient in ballroom, swing, country, and latin.  

Matthew Dale

Matthew Dale – Ext. 103 – Owner and Chief Operations Officer. 

Matthew is Corinne’s son and he has been in the business since 2008. He is a licensed loan officer and the broker and COO of Capella Mortgage.  He manages the pipeline of loans, manages the staff, and supervises issues that arise. He is in charge of advertising to bring in new loans. Matthew and Corinne work together closely to vet deals, and they each decide together on whether a loan proceeds or is denied. Matthew is an active investor himself and he places investor safety on top of all else.  He prices all loans and sets the terms and conditions. Together, Corinne and Matthew have kept Capella Mortgage’s default rates down to one of the lowest in the industry.  Matthew loves golf and “drifting” his race cars.
