As the home mortgage market was being fundamentally altered in the financial crisis, Davenport resolved to go out on his own and build a company that would help people avoid the old pitfalls that caught so many of the clients he had seen at Bank of America and Wells Fargo—and the new ones coming. In 2010, Davenport founded Regal Credit Management in New York City. “As a former mortgage originator, I understand how unfavorable credit—or no credit at all—can impact your livelihood,” says Davenport. “Whether caused by error, theft, or rookie mistakes, bad credit affects your ability to live life on your terms.”
Davenport’s early success brought him clients from the top levels of professional sports, music, real estate and finance. He holds nearly a dozen advanced certifications, and conducts continuing education training in and around New York for the New York County Lawyers Association, New York Society of CPAs and the New York Real Estate Institute. Since 2014, Davenport has worked with the NFL in its executive education program to train athletes on credit management and protection, and he’s been the subject of numerous print and television features in outlets like Forbes, the New York Times and Current TV. His first book, The Score—a real-world guide to navigating the world of consumer credit—will be published in 2017 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
