Mark Cohen, founder of Cohen Financial Group, has taken over the top spot in the Origination News survey of the top producing loan officers of 2013. While the numbers are preliminary and have not been vetted, Cohen did $503 million in volume last year.

Submissions need to be completed by the end of the day on March 8 to appear on the list to be printed in the April issue of Origination News.

The order of top producers is subject to change as more data comes into the system.

Brian Scott Cohen of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, slips to No. 2 on the list, with volume of $326 million while Michael Warsop of BNC National Bank comes in at No. 3 with volume of $295 million.

Fourth is Brad Cohen of Capital Bank at $279 million, while Yinan Nancy Sun of Austin First Mortgage so far is the top woman producer and fifth most prolific overall with volume of $263 million.

We are accepting data for the 2012 survey at our survey website, http://bit.ly/WybTbg.

Eligible participants include bank loan officers, broker loan offers, broker/producers, mortgage banker loan officer and every other producer in the business. We also accept commercial transactions in our rankings (that is how it has historically been done and we would like to keep that continuity). We also will accept data from reverse mortgage originators.

Besides the questions about volume, we are also asking questions about your marketing.

Those providing data will have the opportunity to get a free subscription to Origination News.
