Top Producers rankings Nos. 26-100

Register now

The 2020 countdown of the National Mortgage News Top Producers list continues by featuring the loan officers ranked 26 to 100.

During 2019, mortgage originators started the year concerned about attracting new business. By year’s end, they were tallying up the first collective $2 trillion year since 2012.

The strength of that market is seen in this year's Top Producer results. This year, the No. 400 originator produced nearly $35 million; a year ago, the loan officer ranked 300th did $30 million. That momentum carried into the first couple of months of 2020, but with so much of the economy in shutdown mode, it’s impossible to predict with certainty what the year will bring - at least in terms of volume.

Beyond volume, some significant trends are taking shape. And in an effort to understand how these outstanding performers view those trends, participants in the program were polled on key industry issues. This year’s questions probed how artificial intelligence is affecting respondents’ jobs, what client needs are not being met by the market and how these professionals strive to move the customer conversation beyond just a comparison of interest rates.

This year marks the 22nd anniversary of the Top Producers program. The rankings are open to mortgage loan officers and mortgage brokers who work at depository, nonbank and mortgage brokerage firms in the United States.

Be sure to visit NationalMortgageNews.com for complete Top Producers content, including additional rankings based on regions and loan product type, as well as data and analysis gleaned from insights the loan officers provided about key market developments, business practices and career priorities.

You’ll also get their views on key industry trends in technology, thoughts on business strategy and insights gleaned from working with consumers on the transaction that, for many, will be the biggest they ever undertake.

The 2020 Top Producer rankings countdown will continue until the top 25 loan officers are revealed on April 3.
