Sammamish Mortgage’s Michael Shane Ranked as One of the Nation’s Top 40 Originators
Scotsman Guide Releases Top Originators 2011 Rankings

Sammamish Mortgage congratulates Michael Shane for his ranking on Scotsman Guide’s 2011 Top Originators list, the most intensely verified and comprehensive ranking of its kind. Michael Shane was ranked #1 in WA and OR in Closed Loans and total Dollar Volume Closed.

Scotsman Guide, the leading resource for mortgage originators, released its third annual Top Originators rankings on April 1. The list, which ranks the nation’s top mortgage brokers, originators and bankers, appears in Scotsman Guide‘s April 2012 residential edition, and searchable rankings are available online at

Michael Shane was ranked among entries from more than 800 mortgage professionals across the country. To be eligible for initial consideration in Scotsman Guide’s Top Originators rankings, originators must have had at least $30 million in loan volume or 100 closed home loans for the 2011 calendar year. Only loans and volume that originators closed personally could be considered. After receiving submissions, Scotsman Guide required written verification of top entrants’ volume from a certified public accountant. This verification process makes Scotsman Guide’s Top Originators list the most accurate ranking of top-producing originators in the industry.
