Mortgage Lending Services' Thomas Jussila Recognized as Best in Minnesota

PLYMOUTH, MN--(Marketwired - May 9, 2014) - Mortgage Lending Services, LLC., a TruStone Financial company, announces top honors to senior mortgage consultant, Thomas Jussila for his second consecutive year being recognized as one of Scotsman Guide 2013 Top Originators. 

Jussila was the only loan originator from Minnesota to make the top 150 list. He ranked #1 in Minnesota (#140 in the country) for closing 308 loans in 2013. Scotsman Guide, which released its fourth annual Top Originators rankings on April 1, ranks the nation's top mortgage brokers, originators and bankers, and presents the mortgage industry's most comprehensive list of its kind.

Jussila was ranked alongside the top 1,500 mortgage professionals across the country. To be eligible for the Scotsman Guide Top Originators recognition, originators must have had at least $30 million in loan volume or 100 closed home loans for the 2013 calendar year. Only loans and volume that originators closed personally could be considered.

This is Jussila's second consecutive year being recognized in the Scotsman Guide. In 2012, he was ranked #1 in Minnesota (#203 in the country) for Top Dollar Volume for closing more than $90 million in loans. He was also ranked #1 in Minnesota (#77 in the country) for Most Loans Closed at a staggering 442. 

"With the housing market still recovering, refinance market slowing down and less inventory than ever before, this recognition is very commendable," said Nathan Grunzke, senior vice president of Mortgage Lending Services. "Being a two time recipient of this honor is a testament of his passion for helping borrowers make a house their home."

This honor comes on the heels of being named the Top 1% Mortgage Originators by Mortgage Executive Magazine in February. Regarded as one of the most comprehensive mortgage lists, eligibility is for those who had personal production of at least $30 million in 2013.

"It's gratifying and humbling to be part of such a talented group of people," Jussila stated. "My position affords me the opportunity to build relationships with a diverse group of people, expand existing connections and create referral relationships that last, no matter the housing market challenges."
