RJ Crosby Ranks in the Nation’s Top 1% of Loan Originators

SCOTTSDALE, AZ (March 1, 2017) – New Jersey-based residential mortgage lender First Choice Loan Services Inc., a Berkshire Bank Company today announced that Vice President and Branch Manager RJ Crosby 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 Crosby to make this distinguished list. He leads the First Choice Loan Services Loan Originator team in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“Being ranked on Mortgage Executive Magazine’s list of the top 1% of loan originators in the nation is something that could not have been achieved without the amazing support from my customers. I’m thankful for the trust they place in me as I work with them on one of the largest financial investments of their life,” said Crosby. “Every day, my goal is to provide my clients and business partners with a home loan experience that far surpasses what they might have imagined.  When this is accomplished, I hope to be their mortgage lender for life.  That is an honor that cannot be beat.”

Executive Vice President of National Production James Iley is very proud of Crosby’s most recent accomplishment.

“I’ve had the pleasure to work with RJ for many years now, and I can tell you that he is definitely one of the most well-respected mortgage professionals in the industry. He provides exemplary leadership to his team in Scottsdale while at the same time providing personalized and attentive service to all of his homeowners, homebuyers and business partners,” said Iley. “RJ is a major contributor to the good name and trusted leadership that First Choice Loan Services is now known for within the mortgage field. He’s one of our star players, and we are so grateful he calls First Choice his professional home.”
