The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP®️) released its fifth annual Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators Report recognizing the top producing Latino mortgage professionals across the United States. This year's report, sponsored by Freddie Mac, ranks individual originators based on both number and dollar volume of transactions, and represents over $8.14 billion in combined sales volume in 2018. For the fifth consecutive year, Wells Fargo led the way as the company with the most honorees.

NAHREP salutes the men and women among the Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators for their hard work and contributions in assisting thousands of individuals to realize their dream of homeownership. The Hispanic homeownership rate has increased for four consecutive years, and access to affordable mortgage credit is essential for those gains to continue.

“Top real estate agents only work with mortgage originators who can get deals done and match their commitment for exemplary service,” said 2019 NAHREP President David Acosta. “NAHREP is proud to recognize the top Latino loan professionals in the country who make the dream of homeownership a reality for thousands of families each year.”

The Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators Report was compiled through a self-nomination process reflecting total transactions closed during the 2018 calendar year, then validated by NAHREP through the nominees' respective companies.
