NMP invited mortgage companies to let their employees vote on how well they’re doing. In this edition, we tally what those workers had to say about the Most Loved Mortgage Employers. Plus, columnist Lew Sichelman lays out why originators are missing a lucrative payday with renovation loans; we look at how to differentiate your company when recruits focus only on your commission plan; how to build a brand based on emotion; and whether mortgage conferences for women are getting better.
