ZABE Mortgage Group was formed to provide families with the resources needed to realize their dreams. Our client families are the very heart of our success.
ZABE Mortgage Group has served hundreds of Central California families every year since 1997. Our headquarters and branch office are fully staffed with mortgage professionals who have but one goal in mind: your total satisfaction with the mortgage process.
You cannot suffer the past or future because they do not exist. What you are suffering is your memory and your imagination.” – Unknown
Audel Avila wears many hats – and he loves every one of them. Whether it’s helping with appointment overflow, recruiting loan officers, managing branch profit and loss or handling marketing efforts, Audel is committed to honoring ZABE’s incredible reputation in every way. His take-charge, driven spirit is a testament to his client dedication. He’s always two steps ahead, as he anticipates the client’s needs and ensures communication at every step of the loan process. In Audel’s words, “If a client calls us to check on the status of their loan, it’s too late.”
Audel’s successful career in the industry began over 20 years ago. While house hunting in the Central Valley, Audel was disappointed in the inconsistent service he received when applying for a loan and buying a home. His personal experience motivated him to earn his mortgage license, and ignited his desire to provide a more educational mortgage service.
That educational piece is what separates ZABE Mortgage Group from the competition. Audel and the entire ZABE staff take pride in making every client feel welcomed and comfortable – and most of all, walk away with advice that will benefit them for generations to come.
Audel is an avid salsa dancer! He’s been dancing for over 15 years and enjoys all types of music.
While he’s done a bit of traveling, he has quite a bucket list! It includes the Great Barrier Reef, an African safari and castles in Europe.
Audel likes the cold weather and enjoys snowboarding with his son and daughter.×
Champions become champions when no one is watching.”
On the outside, being a mortgage planner is about knowing the most popular and lucrative loan programs. But to Fidel Dorado, he sees his work at ZABE Mortgage as much more: he’s in the business of changing lives for generations.
With ZABE, Fidel offers potential buyers a 360-degree view of their overall financial position. He finds out what motivates each buyer and understands the goals behind home ownership or refinancing. This way, he can provide the most strategic, thoughtful recommendation and empower buyers to make smart decisions.
As a member of the ZABE family for more than 2 decades, Fidel knows that owning a home is one of the biggest commitments you’ll make. He started out making phone calls and doing paperwork for Audel, and later became a loan officer. He learned early on about the ever-changing market and mastered what questions to ask in order to provide the most ideal offer for every client.
Fidel’s main goal is to make buyers and families feel comfortable. His ability to adapt to and connect with a variety of personalities allows him to establish lasting relationships with families as they embark on a journey to home ownership. Most of all, he is committed to connecting on a personal level that extends beyond interest rates and terms to provide an unparalleled experience.
Fidel loves to BBQ with his wood pellet grill. He’s always trying out new recipes!
He loves to travel… but he’s afraid of flying! Fidel wants to gradually take more plane trips so he can fly overseas.
Perhaps being in the mortgage business has affected Fidel’s downtime, because he enjoys being a homebody! He loves to spend time with his family at home, and he admits he owes much of his ZABE success to his wife for “holding down the fort.”
He loves to go to sporting events, especially his daughter’s soccer games.×
I’m here to provide professional support to our loan officers and provide a friendly, smooth process for our customers. My best success comes from helping families purchase their new home.
