Residential Mortgage Loan Originator

Sonia Padilla

NMLS #1497761
Licensed in TX


Sonia Padilla was born in Germany to a German mother and an American father who served in the military. She later followed in her father’s footsteps and joined the Army. Sonia lived much of her life at Fort Campbell – on the Tennessee side of the military base that straddles Kentucky and The Volunteer State. But when a dose of wanderlust and curiosity led her to Texas, she immediately fell in love. Although still considered the South, the Lone Star state bore no resemblance to Tennessee, and Sonia knew she found her home.  

She immediately felt that the mortgage business was a perfect fit after jumping at the chance to get her foot in the door as a loan officer’s assistant. Sonia quickly saw that a career in lending was tailor-made for her. Now, as a residential mortgage loan originator for Aligned Mortgage, she thrives on the hectic atmosphere, tight deadlines, and the immediate demands that constantly require her to think on her feet.  

Sonia shows an unwavering loyalty and commitment to her clients, arming them with the information they need to reach their homeownership goals. She uses the structure she learned in the military in her civilian life as a tool to keep her going at full throttle on her clients’ behalf.  

As a Veteran from a military family, Sonia appreciates that Aligned Mortgage is Veteran-oriented and that the faith-based company works diligently to get its clients approved. And one of the most satisfying aspects of her position is celebrating each client’s closing. Not with a mere handshake, but with joyous festivities and happy tears. At Aligned Mortgage, a closing isn’t simply the conclusion of a business transaction; it’s ushering those clients you worked so closely with into their new lives as homeowners.  

When Sonia isn’t helping her clients maneuver around the most important purchases of their lives, her top priority is her son. They love spending time together on grand adventures, discovering places they’ve never seen. Although socializing with family and friends is important to her, Sonia also seeks out quiet time reading, hiking, and kayaking.
