Family First Funding LLC Named A 2022 Top Mortgage Employer
Posted By Lindsay Byrne on Sep 22, 2022

Tom’s River, New Jersey — September 22nd, 2022 — Family First Funding LLC has been named a Top Mortgage Employer by MPA Mortgage Professional America.

To determine the top US mortgage employers, MPA invited organizations to describe their offerings and business practices through a survey. They then asked employees from the nominated companies to fill out their own anonymous survey to rate their satisfaction with a number of key factors such as compensation, employee development, culture, and work environment. Companies with a satisfaction rating of 80% or greater were included in the Top Mortgage Employers list.

The past year was filled with various challenges for mortgage professionals. Family First Funding made a tremendous effort to provide its employees with the resources, training, and support they needed to navigate through the volatile market.

“In a perfect world, market changes would never happen, and there would never be a need to have layoffs, with the exception of poor performance,” said Gabe Gillen. “Businesses have a responsibility to their staff and key stakeholders to work efficiently, produce a profit, and provide services at a level that will create repeat and future business referrals.

Gillen believes in prioritizing and developing technology within systems and processes to automate some time-consuming manual work.

“I think technology will continue to play a larger role within our industry,” he says. “Artificial intelligence and computer programs will handle a larger percentage of the non-sales functions within the mortgage application process. This should create much greater efficiencies for companies and allow them to close more loans with their existing staff and scale without having to outsource. Many lenders have adopted these technologies already and have seen the rewards of making these changes. Those that have not yet done so are quickly surrendering to tech and now see why this is the new way of originating a mortgage.”

The team’s ability to pivot its business structure and integrate new innovations has allowed the independent mortgage banker to make it on this prestigious list of employers for the 3rd year!
