Insignia Mortgage’s co-founders, Damon Germanides and Chris Furie were both ranked in the Top 10 Mortgage Brokers in the country by The Scotsman Guide for 2022. Damon and Chris were ranked as #7 and #9 respectively, with a total collective volume of nearly $743 million, and a total of 309 closed loans between them. Also featured on the list of the Top 100 Mortgage Brokers is Neil Patel, Insignia’s resident CPA and broker, ranking at #73 with over $135 million in loan volume and 54 closed loans. What separates the Insignia team from other brokers in the ranking is their decade-long focus on placing niche jumbo loans with local banks and credit unions. Chris, Damon, and Neil have the largest loans by size in the rankings. The total loan volume for the company in 2021 alone was close to $1 billion.
Insignia has focused on this jumbo niche area of the market for over a decade. Damon and Chris saw a need in the marketplace to locate lenders willing to fund multi-million-dollar loans for self-employed borrowers, foreign nationals, real estate investors, and retirees. As a result, the Insignia team has helped create customized loan programs with their lending sources to meet this need.
2022 marks the 6th time Insignia’s team has had the honor of ranking within the Top 100 on this list. View the full Top Mortgage Brokers List under The Scotsman Guide’s Top Originators 2022 here. https://www.scotsmanguide.com/rankings/top-originators/2022/top-mortgage-brokers
