Inlanta Ranked a Top Mortgage Lender Again

Top-Mortgage-Lender
Inlanta Mortgage, Wisconsin’s largest independent mortgage lender, has once again been named to the Scotsman Guide’s Top Mortgage Lenders list.

Top Mortgage Lender 2013

The Scotsman Guide’s Top Mortgage Lender list is one of the mortgage industry’s most respected ranking reports. Similar to the Scotsman Guide Top Originators award bestowed upon individual originators, Top Mortgage Lender volume must be verified by a CPA or a company’s chief financial officer. Only verified loan volume from one-to-four unit residential properties within the U.S. was included.

“2013 was a transitional year for mortgage professionals, and a year that required all of us to dramatically change our thinking about the business,” said Inlanta Mortgage President, Nicholas DelTorto. “The robust refinance business enjoyed in the 1st quarter started to decline in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. This caused problems for many companies as they failed recognize the importance of relationships or the referral source of their business until it was almost too late.

“Inlanta has remained focused on the purchase market, our referral sources, and the buyers we serve. Mortgage companies like Inlanta, with operational flexibility and a sales relationship focus, flourished. Our inclusion on the Scotsman Guide Top Mortgage Lender list is a testament to the strength of both our operations support teams and our sales professionals. It is an honor to be recognized.”
