LINTHICUM, MD, April 11, 2019 — NFM Lending is proud to announce three of its loan originators, Jane Floyd, Daniel Sa, and Jessica Uphoff, have been ranked on the Scotsman Guide’s Top Originators 2018 lists.

Each year, Scotsman Guide recognizes the nation’s top producing mortgage loan originators. Originators can be ranked in any of ten categories, including Top Dollar Volume, Most Loans Closed, and Top Purchase Volume. Each set of rankings is thoroughly audited, making Scotsman Guide the mortgage industry’s “most intensely reviewed, accurate and substantiated rankings of its kind.”

Jane Floyd, out of Tampa, FL, made both Top Dollar Volume and Most Loans Closed categories. She ranked #171 out of 500 in Top Dollar Volume and #127 out of 300 for Most Loans Closed.

They are skilled professionals who continue to reset the gold standard for both loan originators in the NFM Family and the mortgage industry in general.”

Over 4,500 Originators applied for consideration, with only 670 making the ranks. To be considered for the rankings, entrants must either have had at least $30 million in loan volume, or personally closed 100 home loans in the 2018 calendar year.
