As a Mortgage Loan Originator, Who You Work For Matters

Choosing who you work for holds immense significance in today’s ever-evolving mortgage industry. In this article, you’ll learn more about American Pacific Mortgage, how we support our loan officers and help them grow, and why we consider APM one of the best places to work for loan officers.

who you work for matters

At APM, we’ve crafted seven pillars of differentiation that serve as the cornerstone of our company’s identity. These aren’t just abstract concepts but the guiding principles that attract people to our company and keep them engaged and fulfilled.

If you’re seeking a partnership with a mortgage lender that aligns with your long-term aspirations and actively supports your growth and development, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you’re a solopreneur charting your own course or a seasoned leader overseeing a team, we offer customizable options that empower you to cultivate the business of your dreams.

Let’s explore the traits that set APM apart as the ultimate partner for mortgage loan officers striving for success in any environment.

Reputable Lender

Change is inevitable in any industry, and it can happen quickly. That’s why partnering with a company like APM, a national mortgage lender with a long-standing reputation for strength and longevity, is crucial to your success. 

APM’s years of navigating changing housing cycles and recessions and originating in volatile interest rate environments have prepared us for this moment. Unlike many of our competitors, we’re not looking to get out of the mortgage business—we’re here to ride the waves, big or small.

When you partner with APM, you don’t have to worry about the uncertainty of a merger or acquisition. We’re a thriving independent and employee-owned company through and through, and that’s our final destination. 

Did you know that 91% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations, and 97% say customer reviews factor into their buying decisions? Rankings and reviews matter.

It’s one thing to say what we do; it’s another to back it up with results. Our 4.9-star customer service rating from 141,000+ reviews tells part of that story.

The other part is industry awards. In just the past two years, APM has received the following accolades:



Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get a bigger piece of the pie? To be part owner in a mortgage company—without all the day-to-day responsibilities but still reaping the financial rewards?

We know that planning for your future and having financial security once you leave the industry are paramount. So, in addition to our 401(k) program, we provide financial stability through our employee stock ownership program (ESOP). APM is one of a few mortgage lenders that offer this opportunity, and when you partner with APM, that opportunity is extended to you.

Arguably one of the most important benefits of an ESOP is that the company is protected in perpetuity, and you get a piece of the pie. Our move to an employee-owned company in 2021 was designed to safeguard and reward our valued employees in their retirement years.

Aside from the financial benefit, the company’s stability provides peace of mind. We control our destiny, protecting the company culture we’ve worked hard to build.

At APM, you’re more than just an employee—you’re invited to a seat at the table with all of us.

Smart and Savvy Tech 

Technology is about meeting customers where they are when they need you the most. It’s about crafting a seamless experience for what could potentially be one of the most significant financial decisions they will ever undertake. Ensuring that your customers feel supported and valued, not just during the transaction but also before and after the closing, is paramount.

The APM savvy tech suite serves as a conduit to broadcast your expertise and availability within your community, reinforcing your position as a trusted advisor ready to assist. By leveraging the right mortgage tools, you can liberate yourself from mundane tasks, allowing you to focus on what truly drives revenue—the human touch in every interaction.

At APM, we understand technology’s pivotal role in modern business operations. That’s why we’ve meticulously crafted our technology stack, with EDGETech leading the charge. This fully integrated suite of tools empowers loan originators to streamline operations seamlessly while wowing customers and referral partners alike.

From our cutting-edge mobile application to same-day approvals, comprehensive database monitoring, and beyond, APM offers a technology arsenal tailored to help you close more deals with unmatched efficiency and intelligence. With our technology by your side, you can confidently navigate the industry’s complexities.

With our comprehensive offerings, you can rest assured that no potential deal will slip through the cracks. However, should you encounter a scenario where our existing solutions don’t quite fit the bill, our open platform empowers you to broker your deal seamlessly, ensuring that your clients’ needs are always met.

APM also provides exclusive programs that add value to your business. For instance, our in-house construction lending and reverse mortgage programs cater to your market’s needs and present opportunities for you to earn referral fees. By leveraging these specialized programs, you can diversify your revenue streams and maximize your earning potential.

But that’s not all. Our loan officers can also generate unsecured consumer and auto loans, providing additional compensation. Whether assisting clients with financing a car or consolidating their debt, when you partner with APM, you can seamlessly facilitate these transactions and get paid. 

Our commitment to delivering best-in-class products goes beyond mere transactions; it’s about empowering you to thrive in an ever-evolving market. With our diverse range of offerings and unwavering support, you can confidently navigate any financial scenario, knowing you have the tools and resources to succeed.
