The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP®️) released its sixth annual Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators Report today, recognizing the top producing Latino mortgage professionals across the United States. This year’s report, sponsored by Radian, ranks individual originators based on both number and dollar volume of transactions, and represents over $10 billion in combined sales volume in 2019.

NAHREP salutes the professionals among the Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators for their hard work and contributions to sustainably growing intergenerational wealth through homeownership. The Hispanic homeownership rate has increased for five consecutive years, and access to affordable mortgage credit is essential for those gains to continue.

“Congratulations to this amazing group of loan originators who continue to break ground in helping people achieve their dream of homeownership,” said 2020 NAHREP President Sara Rodriguez. “A lot of new homeowners were created thanks to their hard work, passion and excellence!”

The Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators Report was compiled through a self-nomination process reflecting total transactions closed during the 2019 calendar year, then validated by NAHREP through the nominees' respective companies.
