Jonathan Esposito - Founder & Managing Partner

After graduating from Princeton University, Jonathan Esposito, Founder of Rîze Mortgage, was involved in scaling several successful nationally recognized technology companies. In 2020, he was approached with a unique opportunity to join the mortgage industry. Immediately, through his unparalleled combination of dedication and hard work, he was able to establish trusted partnerships within the real estate agent industry. As a result of this, Jonathan has garnered multiple accolades as an industry leading producer. Among these accolades, he is recognized as a Top 1% Certified Partner, which is only awarded exclusively to the top 1% of producing loan officers by the #1 Mortgage Lender in the Country, United Wholesale Mortgage.

Jonathan is proud and excited about the opportunity to launch Rîze Mortgage in the town that he was born and raised, West Hartford, Connecticut. Although headquartered in Connecticut, Rîze Mortgage is licensed to serve clients throughout much of the United States. Nevertheless, being back in Connecticut has allowed Jonathan to continue his varied and vast volunteer commitments that range from coaching various youth sports leagues to helping at local food banks. Jonathan is also proud to serve on several local boards including Geno Auriemma’s Charity Event Series that supports the Connecticut Children’s Foundation.

Rîze Mortgage is committed to doing things differently from other mortgage companies. What has led to Jonathan’s rapid success, above all else, is customer service. Getting a home and securing a mortgage is stressful enough; it is often the largest financial commitment that people make in their entire lives. Rîze Mortgage is committed to being available at the most critical and convenient time for YOU. Choosing the right mortgage professional is important. Whether you are buying, selling, refinancing, or building your dream home, you have a lot riding on your loan officer. Since market conditions and mortgage programs change frequently, you need to make sure you are working with a top professional who is honest, dependable, and has the integrity to be able to give you quick and accurate financial advice. We have the knowledge and expertise you need to explore the many financing options available. Ensuring that you make the right choice for you and your family is our ultimate goal, and we are committed to providing our customers with mortgage services that exceed their expectations.
