  • Guaranteed Rate Again Has Most Top Originators in National Rankings from Scotsman Guide

    Guaranteed Rate, one of the ten largest retail mortgage lenders in the U.S., has once again landed the most loan originators on Scotsman Guide’s annual rankings of the “Top Originators 2014.” It is the third consecutive year that Guaranteed Rate has placed the most originators on the list of any bank or mortgage company.

    Published today, the rankings are intended to “celebrate the excellence of the industry’s top performers… and offer valuable insight into the status of the mortgage industry,” the magazine wrote. Guaranteed Rate placed 31 loan originators in the Top 300 rankings, nearly double the second-place company, including five in the top 25. Guaranteed Rate also had five originators among the top 50 in total number of loans closed. 

    It is the second recent national honor for Guaranteed Rate’s loan originators. In February, the company had the most loan originators named to Mortgage Executive Magazine’s annual list of the “Top 200 Mortgage Originators in America.” In addition, Mortgage Executive 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. In the past 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.
