Top Mortgage Originators By State

By -

The mortgage industry is not easy. Ask any mortgage professional and they’ll tell you that getting loans cleared to close in today’s market can feel this pushing a Chevy Suburban up a mountain without wheels. There have been a huge number of changes in the industry in recent years and when coupled with tightening guidelines and declining markets, it can make for some complicated scenarios. As with most businesses, there is no educational substitute for hands-on experience. If you work with a mortgage professional who has closed hundreds of loans, they have likely experienced just about every curve ball that can be thrown into the process. And, they likely know what to do in order to keep the wheels turning (or cut a customer loose without out over promising and under delivering). Every year the Scottsman Guide puts out a list of some of the top mortgage originators in the market. Below is a list of some of the 200 leading originators in the country sorted by state (2011) based upon their volume of closed loans. You may want to Google their names if you are interested in financing assistance.
