LINTHICUM, MD, April 8, 2022 — NFM Lending and its family of lenders, including Main Street Home Loans, Bluprint Home Loans, Freedmont Mortgage Group, and Elevate Home Loans, are proud to announce that 92 of its loan originators are on the Scotsman Guide Top Originators 2022 lists. In addition, three originators are among the very top leaders.

Each year, Scotsman Guide recognizes the nation’s top-producing mortgage loan originators. Originators are ranked in 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.” 

Out of Lynnwood, WA, Oleg Tkach made the Top Dollar Volume Category, along with Jane Floyd (Tampa, FL) and Jessica Uphoff (Westminster, CO). Tkach ranked #112 out of #8032 in the category, with Floyd at #205 and Uphoff at #256. Tkach and Floyd also made the Most Loans Closed category, along with Daniel Sa, out of Columbus, OH. Tkach ranked #110 out of #10570, Floyd at #160, and Sa at #351. 

“I watched how hard everyone worked in 2021, so it’s no surprise to see such a large list of top producers within the NFM Family,” said NFM President Jan Ozga. “I have been in the mortgage industry for over 27 years, and I have never worked with a more successful and talented group.”

To be considered, entrants must either have done at least $40 million in loan volume or personally closed 100 home loans in the 2021 calendar year. In 2021, Tkach did over $308,706,334 million in volume and closed 757 loans; Floyd did over $242,293,727 million and closed 676 loans; and Uphoff had $220,787,016 million and closed 513 loans.
