EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ (May 11, 2018) – New Jersey-based residential mortgage lender First Choice Loan Services Inc., a Berkshire Bank Company announced that it is featured on this year’s list of the “Top 100 Mortgage Companies in America” in the Summer 2018 issue of Mortgage Executive Magazine.


The publication selected companies based on their 2017 total annual dollar volume. This is the fifth year for First Choice Loan Services to appear on Mortgage Executive Magazine’s list.


This honor arrives in succession with additional accolades for First Choice Loan Services. Earlier this year, First Choice Loan Services was named for the fifth year in a row as one of the “50 Best Mortgage Companies to Work For” in the Winter 2018 issue of Mortgage Executive Magazine and was featured as a “Top Mortgage Employer” for the third year in a row in the January 2018 issue of National Mortgage Professional Magazine.

Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Norman T. Koenigsberg is very excited for the company to be recognized in this way once again.


“We are tremendously proud to once again be named one of the ‘Top 100 Mortgage Companies in America’ by Mortgage Executive Magazine. The credit for this and all our other accolades is two-fold. First, we could not achieve such greatness without the amazing and dedicated individuals who make up the First Choice Family. I’m honored to work with them every day and inspired by their commitment,” said Koenigsberg.  “Second, such milestones are only accomplished through the trust that is placed in us by those we serve. Our home buyers, homeowners and business partners have many options for their home financing needs, and we greatly value the fact that they choose First Choice for their home buying journey. Their support helps us achieve excellence.”
