Mortgage Master has announced the kick-off of its 25th anniversary year, marking its many years of providing borrowers with mortgage solutions and unmatched customer service. This week, Mortgage Master invites each of its 33 branches across the country to take part in the celebration by participating in a week-long series of employee appreciation events held at the Company’s newly expanded Walpole, Mass. headquarters.
“We are proud and excited to celebrate Mortgage Master’s 25th anniversary in a way that allows us to recognize the number one source of our success—our people and the leadership of our founder Leif Thomsen,” said Paul Anastos, president of Mortgage Master. “We have always had a terrific business model; however, it is our culture that has exceeded the mortgage industry standards for the last 25 years that truly sets Mortgage Master apart. Our talent, combined with consistent responsible lending practices, has been the driving force behind Mortgage Master’s success for the past 25 years. As we continue to expand, we look forward to many more years of success.”
Mortgage Master’s 25th Anniversary kick-off week will consist of daily events to celebrate the employees and remarkable growth the company has experienced over the last 25 years. The group celebrates the same traditions, with unique events involving a clam bake, scavenger hunts, local charity donations, as well as an office tailgate party.
Mortgage Master’s founder, Leif Thomsen, moved to the U.S. nearly 26 years ago as a young entrepreneur from Denmark. At that time, he began his career in the mortgage industry and started Mortgage Master out of the basement in his home. Today, Mortgage Master has 600 employees and is projecting 2012 originations to increase to over $7 billion, from $5.5 billion in 2011.
“Mortgage Master was established with a goal of providing customers with a level of service unlike any other mortgage company in the industry,” said Thomson. “This philosophy is one that is held by every employee at Mortgage Master, from senior management, loan officers, our top operations team, right down to the first person a borrower interacts with when they contact us. Mortgage Master remains focused on delivering the dream of homeownership through our dedicated employees, superior product and pricing, and unparalleled customer service.”
Mortgage Master is currently licensed in 22 states and the District of Columbia, with a significant presence in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. The Company employs more of the top 200 loan officers in dollar volume than any other lender in the U.S.
