Four Guaranteed Rate Loan Originators Named to MPA Magazine List of Top Mortgage Pros Under 35
Guaranteed Rate, one of the ten largest retail mortgage lenders in the nation, announced that four of its loan originators have been honored by Mortgage Professional America (MPA) Magazine in its annual “Young Guns” special feature highlighting the country’s top 50 mortgage professionals under the age of 35.
The four Guaranteed Rate originators who the publication selected for inclusion on the list are: Shant Banosian, branch manager, Waltham, Mass.; Shaul Betesh, branch manager and senior vice president of mortgage lending; New York, N.Y.; Jason Hunter, vice president of mortgage lending, Tampa, Fla.; and Mike Nielsen, vice president of mortgage lending, Chicago, Ill.
The publication said the list honors the top young professionals “making waves in the mortgage industry.” “Despite their youth, (the honorees are) some of the top producers in their companies, racking up tens of millions of dollars per year in sales volume,” the magazine wrote. “In a time when rapid regulatory change demands fresh ideas and new perspectives, these are the hot young originators who hold the future of the industry in their hands.”
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.
