Scotsman Guide proudly presents Top Originators 2015,
the rankings of the nation’s top-producing mortgage brokers and bankers.
This year’s lists are the largest and most comprehensive that we have produced
since we began these annual rankings seven years ago.
Many new faces apparently have seen the value of being recognized on the
industry’s most reputable listings. As a result, during our 25-day submission
period this year, we received more than 2,400 entries — more than double the
number of entrants who participated last year.
This increased interest has helped us expand several listings this year.
The Top Dollar Volume list presents the top 500 originators, and the Most Loans
Closed list presents the top 300 originators. Each of the Top Purchase Volume,
Top Refinance Volume and Top VA Volume lists has been expanded to rank
We still followed the same rigorous verification procedures in making sure
that each and every set of data is closely verified and as accurate as possible.
Inclusion of any individual on these lists does not constitute an endorsement of
that individual by Scotsman Guide or Scotsman Guide Media, however.
Does this increased interest in our rankings reflect a broader positive
sentiment in the market? For more insights on what this year’s Top Originators
numbers tell us, read BackSpace on Page 186.
