Loan Originators

Who are the Top Loan Originators?

All over the state, loan originators have worked hard in the face of increased demand and increased regulatory burden; they are to be commended for their well-deserved success and their contributions to helping families achieve their dreams of homeownership. 

The Warren Group, publisher of The Registry Review, has compiled the following list of the top loan originators of 2017. The originators are ranked by number of loans and loan volume statewide, and by the institution with which they are most closely affiliated (credit unions, banks and mortgage companies).

All loan totals in these rankings are for loans closed between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018. Totals include purchase loans for single-family and condominiums, and refinances and HELOCs for all residential property types (single-family, condo, two- and three-families). The lenders listed here are the ones for which the originator made the majority of their loans within the year’s timeframe. Data sourced from public records may contain errors.
