According to NAHREP, the Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators Award is an annual report by the NAHREP® that recognizes the leading Latino mortgage originators in the U.S. as ranked by the number of mortgages they closed the previous calendar year.
“NAHREP is proud to recognize these top performing individuals for their contributions toward the association’s mission of sustainable Hispanic homeownership,” according to the report. “The Top 250 Mortgage Originators Award was conceived in 2014 after the continued success of the Top 250 Latino Agents Award created a demand for recognition of success in other parts of the industry.”
