Stanley Y. Wang

Back to Staff Directory

When Stan Wang founded The Advantage Mortgage Group in 1994, he set out to create a different kind of mortgage company.

He wanted a company that obsessively sought to create remarkable customer experiences.

He wanted his company to be known for placing the value of the relationship over the value of the deal.

He wanted to build a staff that understood the value of expertise, efficiency, and quality.

And he was passionate about creating a corporate culture of service to the community.

Under Stan’s leadership, The Advantage Mortgage Group has adopted the values of its founder, and has grown to become one of the premier mortgage companies in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area.

Education, Experience, and Honors

Since he began his career in the mortgage business in 1976, Stan has held a number of different positions ranging from loan officer, to branch manager, to regional vice president, which has granted him a level of perspective and experience that few others in the industry possess.

In addition to a wealth of hands-on industry experience, Stan has also earned the prestigious Certified Mortgage Consultant and Certified Residential Mortgage Specialist designations awarded by the National Association of Mortgage Lenders, equipping him with a level of knowledge that is simply unmatched in the industry.

A graduate of Scottsdale High School, Stan went on to Arizona State University to earn a B.S. in Economics and an MBA from Arizona State’s top-ranked W.P. Carey School of Business.

Stan’s outstanding integrity, experience, and education was publicly recognized in 1999, when his peers honored him with the Broker of the Year Award for the Central Chapter of the Arizona Association of Mortgage Brokers.

Family and Community

Stan lives in Northeast Phoenix with his wife Barb, daughters Rachel and Brianna, son Jacob, and two cats and two dogs who have chosen to remain nameless.

When he’s not working, Stan enjoys coaching his son’s baseball team, working out, reading, and enjoying the beautiful Arizona outdoors while hiking in the local mountains.

As a long-time Arizona Diamondbacks and Phoenix Suns season ticket holder, Stan is no stranger to disappointment, but remains a loyal and unabashed fan.

Stan volunteers his time by serving in a leadership capacity for a local nonprofit organization. He serves as the President of the Board of Directors for Crisis Nursery, a local organization that provides early childhood education, foster family services, and shelter for abused and abandoned children. He joined Crisis Nursery in 2006 after serving 10 years on the Board of Directors for Marcus House — another children’s shelter which eventually merged with Crisis Nursery.
