APM Moves Up In Rankings

We are proud to share that American Pacific Mortgage has moved up to #12 in the Scotsman Guide Top Mortgage Lender rankings, up two spaces from last year!

While we’re now licensed in 32 states, we achieved this honor while being licensed in just 26 states, whereas nearly every other top 15 Lender was licensed in all 50 states. With pending licenses in 5 more states we’re growing strong.

It looks like our customers agree, with over 33,000 published consumer reviews and an average rating of 4.96 stars –we couldn’t be more thrilled!

In 2018, we served over 25,155 customers and funded over $8.2 billion in home loans, growing our market share while others contracted.

Among other awards, APM has also been voted a top mortgage employer for 5 years running by NMP Magazine and one of the 50 best places to work by Mortgage Executive Magazine.

APM was launched in 1996, with a group of 30 people and now employs over 2,000 employees in nearly 200 branches. The one thing that has never changed is our unwavering commitment to support our branch managers and loan officers. We give our originators the culture and resources to provide a unique and superior customer experience for our borrowers.

Our growth is proof positive that each and every one of us is busy every day Creating Experiences That Matter™ in delivering homeownership. Look out top 10 – we’re coming for you!
