EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ (March 2, 2017) – New Jersey-based residential mortgage lender First Choice Loan Services Inc., a Berkshire Bank Company today announced that Loan Originator Paul Lanzano has been ranked among the top 1% of mortgage originators in the nation. This list appears in the Winter 2017 issue of Mortgage Executive Magazine.

The Top 100 Mortgage Originator list debuted in 1995 in Mortgage Originator Magazine. Mortgage Executive Magazine expanded the rankings to include the top 1% of the hundreds of thousands of mortgage originators in the United States in 2011. The minimum eligibility criteria are total individual production of at least $30 million in 2016, and entries cannot include loan volume of associate originators or junior originators who earn a commission on the same loan files.

This is the second year for Lanzano to make this distinguished list. He is based with the First Choice Loan Services Loan Originator team in Costa Mesa, California.

“I aim every day to ensure that my clients experience a seamless home buying journey. They are venturing into one of the largest financial investments of their lives, and it’s important to me that the path to their new home is a smooth one,” said Lanzano. “When I’m honored to appear as one of the top 1% of mortgage originators in the nation, it just reinforces to me that my attention is exactly where it needs to be – and that is on the satisfaction of my customers.”

Senior Vice President of Consumer Direct Bill Schneider is very happy to see Lanzano earn this recognition again.

“We’re extremely excited for Paul to earn this honor once again. From the excellence we witness every day from Paul, this ranking from Mortgage Executive Magazine is well deserved,” said Schneider. “We are regularly inspired by the amazing dedication he demonstrates to his clients. It is clear that the main focus of his business is to provide service beyond belief to his customers which is one of many reasons we are proud to have him on our team.”
