Key Mortgage celebrated the close of a successful 2012 with the company’s annual year-end awards party on January 22. In addition to announcing record years for many of the company’s loan officers, several operational support staff members were honored as well.
“2012 was a fantastic year for us. Our total loan volume increased 67 percent from last year, and 78 percent of our business was home purchases” said Steve DiMarco, president of Key Mortgage. “Not only are we up in just about every aspect of our business, we were named Lender of the Year by Chicago Agent magazine and a top five lender for the Illinois Housing Development Authority. I’m so proud of our results in 2012, and I’m filled with confidence for what 2013 holds.”
Key Mortgage saw 90 percent of its team increase production from 2011. While in 2011 none of the company’s loan officer wrote over 80 units, nine loan officers wrote over 80 deals and four wrote over 100 in 2012. Three loan officers doubled their production from 2011.
Loan officers Dan Matas, Anthony Marinaccio and John Poast were recognized as members of the first annual President’s Club, which requires at least $24,000,000 in annual closed loan production. Dan Matas earned the title of top producing loan officer in volume and units for the company.
In addition to the top loan officers, several operational support achievers at Key Mortgage were recognized for their personal contribution. Kim Loomis was named the most productive loan processor; Jackie Redman received accolades for Most Loans Closed; Joanne Alitto was named the Top Producer, Most Underwritten Loans; and Betsy Martinez was named Top Producer, Most Post Closed/Shipped Loans.
“Key Mortgage wouldn’t be where it is today without the invaluable support we’ve seen from the Baird & Warner broker associates,” said DiMarco. “Our goals for 2013 are very simple; to serve our customers better than any competitor in the marketplace and to support the culture that has brought so many valuable employees to Key Mortgage.”
