We are proud to announce that Seattle Mortgage Planner’s Jim Hoge was ranked in the top 1% of Mortgage Originators in America for 2015! These rankings were recently published in Mortgage Executive Magazine. Check out their list in the Winter 2015 issue.
The magazine notes that in the last decade over 70 percent of the mortgage broker companies have disappeared. Before the housing bubble burst, loan originators and mortgage brokers were far more populous, but after 2007 many had to close up shop and many left the industry due to additional regulations and compliance requirements. The brokers and loan originators who remained were typically the ones with the best reputations and the best practices. They were the brokers and originators who didn’t lead people into mortgages they couldn’t afford or arrange variable rate mortgages for clients that would swiftly become unsustainable. They were the brokers and originators who were, as a rule, most prudent, careful, honest and industry-intuitive. We’re proud to say that Jim Hoge was not only one of the brokers who made it through the housing crisis, but that his excellent practices, reputation, and integrity have helped to only grow his business over time!
If you’re hoping to purchase a home or refinance, we hope you’ll choose a loan advisor with an excellent standing in the industry who has proven his worth through his work for hundreds of families. Seattle Mortgage Planners is one of Seattle’s best and most trusted mortgage options, and we hope you’ll give us a call if you’re in the market!
