Joe DeFatta

Mortgage Loan Officer

Born and raised in Nashville, Joe DeFatta, Jr. experienced first-hand the expansion of the Middle Tennessee area. Growing up in the family owned custom-home construction business positioned Joe as a powerful connection, leveraging personal and professional resources to meet those growth demands. Today, the DeFatta family name is known for superior quality, building some of the most exceptional custom homes in the middle Tennessee area. 

In 2019, Joe began exploring avenues outside the construction business, while still desiring to serve those looking for home related resources. After considerable discernment and recognizing a few connections along the way, Joe began his career in mortgage banking. Today, Joe is a loan originator with Guaranty Home Mortgage, after beginning his lending career with Bank of England Mortgage. Working alongside some of the best, tenured mortgage professionals in the Nashville area, Joe has quickly learned the value of connecting his resources with his clients and valued referral sources. Joe has established reputable connections to assist anyone beyond mortgage financing, including custom home building, home improvement, home maintenance, financial planning and family planning. 

A proven winner and former division one college athlete, Joe chose to return back to Nashville and marry his high-school sweetheart, Hannah. Residents of Bellevue, TN, Joe and Hannah enjoy life in their new home. Both are highly active in the Brentwood United Methodist Church where Hannah pursues her passion and love for youth ministry.
