LINTHICUM, MD, June 5, 2023— NFM Lending and its Family of Lenders are honored to announce they have made the Scotsman Guide’s annual Top Mortgage Lender list for 2023, ranking #18 for Top Retail Lenders and #24 among Top Overall Lenders. This is the fifth time the company has been included in this prestigious list.

Based on sales data from the previous year, NFM had a total volume of $6,997,853,234 with 19,548 closed loans. They moved up from being ranked #31 nationally in 2022. Additionally, NFM led both lists as the #1 Maryland-based mortgage lender. Since 2019, NFM has been the leading lender in its home state.

“What an amazing accomplishment by the NFM Family of Lenders despite all the headwinds the mortgage industry has faced over the last few years,” said President and COO Bob Tyson. “We continue to move up the ranks of top lenders in the country due to our commitment to our clients, business partners and of course our employees.  We are well-positioned moving forward to continue to ascend and I’m excited to see what the future holds.”

Each year since 2013, Scotsman Guide compiles a list of the nation’s top-producing mortgage companies and publicly traded banks by their total yearly mortgage volume. According to their website, “Top Mortgage Lenders is the mortgage industry’s most comprehensive, most intensely verified list of its kind.”
