Wendy Wilcox

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ (March 1, 2017) – New Jersey-based residential mortgage lender First Choice Loan Services Inc., a Berkshire Bank Company today announced that Loan Originator Wendy Wilcox 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 Wilcox to make this distinguished list. She is based with the First Choice Loan Services Loan Originator team in Costa Mesa, California.

“It’s extremely exciting to have made Mortgage Executive Magazine’s list of the top 1% of mortgage originators in the nation for a second time. This motivates me to continue to provide exceptional service to my homebuyers and homeowners because they deserve it,” said Wilcox. “This year, I started my own family, so the importance of a home means even more. I understand on a deeper level what families need, and because of this, I work with more of my heart than ever before. Honors like this are very rewarding.”

Having Wilcox featured in this way makes Senior Vice President of Consumer Direct Bill Schneider extremely proud.

“For Wendy to earn a spot on this prestigious list the same year as having her first child says volumes about her work ethic and dedication. She carries a great passion for what she does, both as a mortgage professional and now as a mother,” said Schneider. “This honor is very well deserved.  The work that Wendy does is one reason that First Choice continues to be one of the most trusted lenders in the mortgage industry.”
