Guaranteed Rate Named Number One Mortgage Lender in Retail Volume for the Second Consecutive Year by Scotsman Guide
Guaranteed Rate, one of the ten largest retail mortgage lenders in the U.S., has once again landed on the Scotsman Guide’s annual rankings of the “Top Mortgage Lenders 2014.” It is the second consecutive year that Guaranteed Rate has placed on the top of the list of retail lenders.
Published Friday, the rankings show that Guaranteed Rate closed 42,227 loans for a total of 12.4 billion in retail volume. Earlier this year, Guaranteed Rate was also named as having the most loan originators on Scotsman Guide’s annual rankings of the “Top Originators 2014.” It is the third consecutive year that Guaranteed Rate has placed the most originators on the list of any bank or mortgage company.
Founded in 2000, Guaranteed Rate has become one of the nation’s fastest growing mortgage companies by offering low rate, low fee mortgages and superior customer service. The company has been able to expand successfully through a business model that allows top originators to join the company and close more loans faster through Guaranteed Rate’s commitment to technology, pricing, process and support. “I am pleased with our 2014 results and am looking forward to an even more impressive showing this year,” said Victor Ciardelli, president and CEO of Guaranteed Rate. “Our rank as number one retail mortgage lender for the second consecutive year is a testimony to our core values as a company, and the dedication we have to providing an unparalleled experience to our customers.”
