The 2017 countdown of the National Mortgage News Top Producers list continues by featuring the loan officers ranked 1-10.
The results of the National Mortgage News 2017 Top Producers survey reflect a surprisingly strong year for mortgage originations. As interest rates plummeted during the summer following the Brexit vote, loan officers found themselves busy with an uptick in refinance volume.
Information submitted about 2016 loan production was used to compile this year's Top Producer Rankings. Loan officers who submitted data for the survey represent the entire spectrum of the origination business, from banks and credit unions to mortgage bankers and mortgage brokerages, and their titles range from loan officer all the way to company president.
The 2017 Top Producer rankings countdown appeared online and the entire list is published in a special section of the print edition of National Mortgage News.
