Houston-based home loan specialist ranks 16th in nation by the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Churchill Mortgage, a leader in the mortgage industry providing conventional, FHA, VA and USDA residential mortgages across 36 states, announced that Franky Bonilla was recognized among the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals’ (NAHREP) 2016 Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators, ranking 16 in the country.

Published annually by NAHREP, the report recognizes the leading Latino mortgage originators in the U.S., as ranked by the number of mortgages closed in the previous calendar year. The final 250 individuals, who were selected from nearly 700 nominations, represent a total of 32,783 closed mortgages and more than $8.1 billion. Bonilla, who is a home loan specialist for Churchill Mortgage’s Houston branch, was ranked 27 in the inaugural Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators report in 2015.

“It is an honor to be ranked among other Latino mortgage originators, all of whom are part of the ongoing effort to bring positivity and growth to the industry,” said Bonilla. “Our success as mortgage professionals is rooted in our ability to identify and meet the needs of each borrower – something that is increasingly critical in an ever-diversifying homebuyer population.”

“In addition to being an incredible accomplishment, Franky’s inclusion is a reflection of his involvement with and dedication to the Latino community, as well as his commitment to borrower education,” said Mike Hardwick, president of Churchill Mortgage. “We’re proud of his work here at Churchill and in the communities he serves, and look forward to his continued work to help make the American dream of homeownership equally accessible to everyone.”
