Independent lender ranked 26th in National Mortgage News’ annual awards program

March 1, 2021 – Danvers, MA – Mortgage Network, Inc., one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the eastern U.S., has been recognized as one of the 2021 Best Mortgage Companies to Work for by National Mortgage News and Best Companies Group. The annual survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the U.S. mortgage industry.

Mortgage Network was ranked 26th among 50 other companies in this year’s list of honorees announced by National Mortgage News in a special report on March 1. To be considered for participation, companies had to be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity operating a facility with at least 15 employees working in the U.S. for at least one year.

“Being recognized by this awards program confirms that we’re doing things the right way,” said Brian Koss, executive vice president of Mortgage Network. “During the pandemic, our company rallied to make sure everyone could work safely and continue to help borrowers achieve their financing goals. In fact, many of our loan officers were able to hit record origination numbers while working remotely. We’re proud to have created an environment where people enjoy what they do and are able to perform at their very best.”

“Joining Mortgage Network in 2019 was the best decision I could have ever made,” said Geoff Worrell (NMLS #12394), a senior loan officer in the company’s Braintree, Massachusetts branch. “Everything here is centered around delivering a fantastic customer experience. Our marketing support is unmatched, and I have all the tools I need to keep my clients and referral partners happy. We celebrate each other when we do great work, too, which motivates all of us to exceed our goals. Plus, we have a lot of fun!”

Winners were chosen based on their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics as well as the results of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

“The companies that are a part of this year’s ranking have demonstrated exemplary support for their teams during an unprecedented year of upheaval,” said Heidi Patalano, editor-in-chief of National Mortgage News at Arizent. “They’ve been nimble in adapting to circumstances surrounding the pandemic at the same time that origination demand has exploded. Each of this year’s honorees should be proud of the company culture they have fostered at such a challenging time.”
