Guaranteed Rate Again Has Most Top Originators on Mortgage Executive List of Nation's Best

Guaranteed Rate, one of the ten largest retail mortgage lenders in the U.S., has once again had the most loan originators named to Mortgage Executive Magazine’s annual list of the “Top 200 Mortgage Originators in America.” It is the third consecutive year that Guaranteed Rate has placed the most originators on the list of any bank or mortgage company.

Published online this week, the 2014 rankings are designed to “recognize and celebrate the service, dedication, and hard work that leading mortgage originators put into serving their clients,” the magazine wrote. Guaranteed Rate placed 26 loan originators in the Top 200 rankings, including six in the top 25, well ahead of the second-place company. 

In addition, the industry publication also released its list of the nation’s top 1% of mortgage loan originators by production volume. Guaranteed Rate had 96 originators honored on this list, also more than any other bank or mortgage company.

Founded in 2000, Guaranteed Rate has become one of the nation’s fastest growing mortgage companies by offering low rate, low fee mortgages and superior customer service, and funded $12.4 billion in loans in 2014 alone.  The company has been able to expand successfully through a business model that allows top originators to join the company and close more loans faster through Guaranteed Rate’s commitment to technology, pricing, process and support. Last year, Guaranteed Rate had more top loan originators in the annual national rankings from mortgage industry publications Mortgage Executive, Scotsman Guide and Origination News than any other bank or mortgage company. 

The Guaranteed Rate mortgage loan originators listed in the Mortgage Executive Magazine Top 200 for 2014 are:
