2017 Top Producers, USA National Mortgage News & Origination News
With the countdown of the 2017 Top Producers rankings now complete, National Mortgage News is pleased to publish the entire list of this year’s best loan officers and brokers.
The results of the National Mortgage News 2017 Top Producers survey reflect a surprisingly strong year for mortgage originations. As interest rates plummeted during the summer following the Brexit vote, loan officers found themselves busy with an uptick in refinance volume.
Information submitted about 2016 loan production was used to compile this year’s Top Producer Rankings. Loan officers who submitted data for the survey represent the entire spectrum of the origination business, from banks and credit unions to mortgage bankers and mortgage brokerages, and their titles range from loan officer all the way to company president.
The 2017 Top Producers are also featured in a special section of the March print edition of National Mortgage News. Plus, additional upcoming features will provide an inside look into the careers and expertise of this year’s Top Producers, offering readers first-hand insights into what it takes to be a leading mortgage industry professional.

With the countdown of the 2015 Top Producers rankings now complete, National Mortgage News and Origination News are pleased to publish the entire list of this year’s best loan officers and brokers.
Originators who submitted data for this survey represent the entire spectrum of lender shops, from banks and credit unions to mortgage bankers and mortgage brokerages, and their titles range from loan officer all the way to company president. Many of these originators have survived and thrived despite the wild changes in the lending environment over the past eight years, and if they want to continue to do so they will have to weather more upheaval in 2015.
The 2015 Top Producers are also featured in a special section of the April 27 print edition of National Mortgage News. Plus, additional upcoming features will provide an inside look into the careers and expertise of this year’s Top Producers, offering readers first-hand insights into what it takes to be a leading mortgage industry professional.
The results of the Origination News 2015 Top Producers survey reflect a year of transition for mortgage originations, with volume for many declining on a year-over-year basis.
There were just three mortgage originators whose personal production in 2014 topped $200 million, down from six for 2013, reflecting the slower overall origination market.
As a whole, mortgage industry volume declined to $1.1 trillion in 2014 from $1.8 trillion the year before, according to data from the Mortgage Bankers Association. The share of refinancing fell to 43% from 60% the year prior. Many originators anticipated that. However, an expected increase in purchase volume that was supposed to offset it failed to materialize, further challenging originators.
The decrease wasn’t just a matter of dollar volume. There were nine loan officers who produced more than 500 units for the year, or more than 42 per month on average. The previous year, there were 14 originators in this category, including three who produced over 700 loans during the year.
The National Mortgage News family of publications began its annual loan officer rankings in 1999, with production data covering origination volume from 1998.
A new segment of this year’s list will be revealed each business day from April 15 through April 27. The list below will be updated with links when each segment is published.
