"Our loan volume increased from $2.8 billion in 2004 to $4 billion in 2005, which is a 43 percent jump in just one year," said Daniel Jacobs, CEO of 1st Metropolitan. "Existing branch originations alone were up 19 percent in 2005, compared to 2004. We remain optimistic about the market, and we expect our loan volumes to remain stable in 2006. We attribute this consistency to our strong branch development efforts, which have continued to fuel our growth despite industry-wide predictions of lower overall production in 2006." 1st Metropolitan Mortgage, a subsidiary of Empire Equity Group, is a national mortgage brokerage based in Charlotte, N.C.
