LINTHICUM, MD, January 5th, 2015— NFM Lending is proud to announce David Silverman, CEO of NFM Lending, has been named one of the 100 Most Influential Mortgage Executives in America by Mortgage Executive Magazine for 2014. This is the second year in a row that Silverman has received this honor.

“I am extremely humbled to be included within such an amazing group of high achieving Industry pioneers and innovators,” said Silverman. “My team has worked very diligently together to create optimal opportunities for our Company to achieve new heights and healthy growth opportunities for all of our employees.”

Mortgage Executive Magazine recognized and celebrated mortgage executives that built their companies and service their clients and employees through service, dedication and hard work. The winning executives were asked to provide their insights on the mortgage industry’s opportunities and challenges today. The following is the response by Silverman:

“The biggest opportunities in 2015 are still in the area of recruitment of top originator teams, training your existing staff from good to great and increasing servicing portfolios. The biggest challenges are managing shrinking margins as the cost of compliance continues to rise and differentiating your company or brand from the competition.  We are all basically working with the same product line and pricing range so service and the “X” factor become the areas of more focused energy.”

NFM Lending, formerly NFM, Inc., was founded in March 3, 1998 by David Silverman and his wife Sandy. The company started as a small brokerage shop with 4 loan officers; and it’s now a multi-state lender with more than 250 employees, over 35 operating branches, and is licensed in 30 states.

NFM Lending has been listed as one of the “Top 100 Mortgage Companies in America” and one of “The 50 Best Companies to Work for in America 2013” by Mortgage Executive Magazine. It also ranked one of the “Top Mortgage Lenders” by The Scotsman Guide for 2012 and 2013; ranked as one of the “Fastest-Growing” and one of the “Largest Private Companies” by the Baltimore Business Journal for 2012; named a “Top Workplace in Baltimore” by The Baltimore Sun in 2012, 2013 and 2014; and numerous other awards.
