LINTHICUM, MD, April 16, 2019 — NFM Lending is proud to announce it was ranked as one of the 50 Best Companies to Work For by Mortgage Executive Magazine. This is the fifth time NFM Lending has been honored with this accolade.

Mortgage Executive Magazine conducted an extensive online survey of more than 10,000 Mortgage Loan Originators (MLOs) from over 200 mortgage companies and banks. The survey was limited to licensed MLOs who were presently employed by the companies they were rating. The survey asked participants to rate the company’s culture, loan processing, underwriting, compensation, management, marketing, and technology. The winning selections were based on average rating and total MLO votes. NFM Lending ranked #5 on the list with an average score of 4.97.

“It’s no surprise that our focus on company culture and the individual employee is the recipe for our success,” said Jan Ozga, President of NFM Lending. “We are successful because we have incredible employees… end of story. Culture is the main ingredient behind any thriving company that continues to grow – both in scale and in profit – year after year. Within the last 12 months, we’ve grown our workforce by 27% and our volume numbers have increased by over 35%; we expect that number to climb to 50% within a short period. Our employees have all the answers and all we need to do is listen intently and act as a team. For NFM, it’s not about the destination, it’s about making the most out of the journey. Before you can build great relationships with your customers, you need to build great relationships with the employees.”

NFM Lending prides itself on its exceptional culture. The company has an open-door policy which allows an open line of communication between management and staff. Employees are encouraged to voice their questions and concerns directly to management, so that they can be addressed promptly and correctly. In addition to a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package, NFM Lending Loan Originators receive ongoing support and assistance from qualified support and operations staff, and opportunities for trips and giveaways.

NFM Lending has been recognized many times for its exceptional company culture. In 2018 alone, it was named one of The Baltimore Sun’s Top Work Places in the Baltimore Area for the seventh consecutive year; one of the Washington Post’s Top Work Places in the Washington, D.C. area for the fourth year in a row; and a Top Mortgage Employer by National Mortgage Professional Magazine for the fourth time. NFM Lending is proud of each member of its team, and the work they do to make NFM a Top Workplace.
