Larry Jaeger

Larry Jaeger

Co-Founder / President

About Larry

Larry built a 20M dollar retail platform with a Bank owned mortgage company as his first position in the mortgage industry. This was followed by, TeleCapital, a commercial finance company he started with an idea in 1995 and grew to a successful business until 1999 when he sold his interest in the Company.

In 2000 Mr. Jaeger started a specialty finance company called Imperial Lending with 1 employee and in 8 years the company was funding 40M/ month of residential loans with over 100 employees.

SCL Mortgage was founded in 2014 to serve both the Prime borrowers as well as the Non-Prime borrowers, which is a very underserved market. In three short years the company has grown to be the “Special Circumstance Lender” in Colorado.
The motto is simple, “Everyone leaves the closing table happy!”
