LINTHICUM, MD, July 31, 2015— NFM Lending is proud to announce that it was ranked #4 of 50 Best Companies to Work For by Mortgage Executive Magazine. This is the second year in a row that NFM Lending has been recognized as one of the 50 Best Companies to Work For.
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 total MLO votes and average rating score. NFM Lending was ranked #4 of 50 based on average score given by employees.
“Of all the awards, the Best Companies to Work For award means by far the most to me,” said David Silverman, founder and CEO of NFM Lending. “It’s not about numbers or profitability; rather, it’s about how we treat each other and what we stand for as a company. It’s one thing to feel you have a great culture, but when you continue to have your fellow employees vote over and over that they love where they work…that’s real!”
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 this most recent award, NFM Lending has been recognized many times in the last few years for its exceptional company culture. It was named one of the Washington Post’s Top Work Places in the Washington, D.C. area in 2015; a 2015 Top Mortgage Employer by National Mortgage Professional Magazine; and a Top Work Place in the Baltimore area by The Baltimore Sun in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
