AUSTIN, TX (February 27, 2017) –First Choice Loan Services Inc., a Berkshire Bank Company today announced that Loan Originator Shirley Mueller 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 third year for Mueller to make this distinguished list. She is based in Austin, Texas.
“I am driven by my passion to serve Veteran homebuyers and homeowners. They bravely and courageously served our country, so it is my privilege to honor their service through helping them work to achieve homeownership,” said Mueller. “To be featured Mortgage Executive Magazine is very exciting. It motivates to me continue to provide exceptional service to my Veteran clients and reinforces that that they are my top priority.”
Executive Vice President of National Production James Iley believes this honor is a direct result of Mueller’s strong work ethic.
“We recognized Shirley last year as First Choice’s Loan Originator of the Year. It was the first year that we’ve given this honor, and she richly deserved it. With her appearance on Mortgage Executive Magazine’s list of the top 1% of loan originators, it’s good to know that what we see internally is also echoed nationally,” said Iley. “Shirley provides amazing service to the Veteran community, and we are incredibly proud to have her as a part of the First Choice Family.”
