Highlands Residential Mortgage, a Dallas-based mortgage lender, is excited to announce that Mortgage Executive Magazine has included us in its 2016 Top 100 Mortgage Companies in America list in the Spring 2017 issue.
Each year, the magazine compiles a list of the nation’s top 100 closely held mortgage companies and publicly traded banks as ranked by their total yearly mortgage volume. In creating the list of the top 100 companies, the magazine aims to recognize the dedication and hard work put in by top mortgage originators, managers, and executives in building their companies and serving their clients. This is the second year in a row Highlands has made this list.
Mortgage Executive Magazine also published the 100 most influential mortgage executives list to recognize executives for their contribution in building their companies and in serving their employees and clients. Highlands President, Brian Bennett, was recognized in the 2016 top 100 for the third consecutive year.
The magazine asked executives: “1) What is the biggest opportunity in the mortgage industry today? 2) What is the biggest challenge facing the mortgage industry today?”
“There is great opportunity in our industry today with an expanding economy and a forecast for increased purchase money business in the years ahead,” Brian Bennett responded. “As a growing, retail only mortgage banker, we believe our focus on simplicity, execution, delivery and serving others will continue to be the keys to success today, tomorrow and beyond. All of these combined with an evolving technology platform will play major roles in overcoming the challenges of attracting new, young talented team members and future millennial home buyers.”
In addition to making these two prestigious lists, Highlands has received many awards and recognition for our commitment and service to our company, employees, and clients. Mortgage Executive Magazine has named us as one of “50 Best Mortgage Companies to Work for” multiple times and The Dallas Morning News named us as a one of the top 100 places to work.
We were also honored to be recognized by SMU Cox School of Business Dallas 100™ Awards as being one of the top 100 fastest growing privately owned companies in the Dallas area. Our Highlands team is proud of these accomplishments and after four consecutive years of strong growth, we continue to rise up the list of America’s Top 100 Lenders. We look forward to building on the great success achieved thus far and serving the home buying needs of our customers across the country.
