EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ (May 1, 2019) – New Jersey-based residential mortgage lender First Choice Loan Services Inc., a Berkshire Bank Company, today announced that it has been ranked among the “50 Best Mortgage Companies to Work For” by Mortgage Executive Magazine. This list was published in the Spring 2019 issue.
To pick the 50 Best Companies to Work For, Mortgage Executive Magazine conducted the most extensive loan originator survey in corporate America. Over 200 mortgage companies and banks participated. More than 10,000 loan originators were surveyed. The online surveys are limited to licensed mortgage loan originators who are currently employed by the companies that they are rating. The survey asked the mortgage loan originators to rate the company’s culture, loan processing, underwriting, compensation, management, marketing, and technology. Any company with a minimum of 30 mortgage loan originators is eligible. The winning companies are selected based on a combination of total mortgage loan originator votes and average rating score.
Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Norman T. Koenigsberg is very proud that First Choice Loan Services once again earned this recognition.
“This year, First Choice Loan Services celebrates a decade in the mortgage industry. During these 10 years, we’ve helped thousands of families achieve the dream of home ownership. We deeply value the trust they place in us to work with one of the largest financial investments they will make in their lifetime,” said Koenigsberg. ”We are extremely excited to earn a ranking on the list of the ‘50 Best Mortgage Companies to Work For’ in Mortgage Executive Magazine for the sixth year in a row. Achievements like this would not be possible without the amazing support of our borrowing families and incredible business partners. Our commitment in the past ten years, and in the years to come, is to continue to provide them with service beyond belief as we help guide them on the exciting journey home.”
Koenigsberg continued, “Of course, the hard work and dedication of each member of the First Choice Family is what keeps us going. This ranking is a demonstration of their excellence!”
Additionally, First Choice Loan Services is featured in the same issue of Mortgage Executive Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Mortgage Companies in America.” This is the sixth year to earn this accolade. In the January 2019 issue of National Mortgage News, First Choice Loan Services ranked among the “Best Mortgage Companies to Work For.” Over the last four years, National Mortgage Professional Magazine has named First Choice Loan Services a “Top Mortgage Employer.” Since 2013, the company has also earned a ranking for “Top Overall Volume” by the Scotsman Guide.
