AREA Awards 2012: Mortgage Banker Of The Year

The Arizona Real Estate Achievement (AREA) Awards — selected by a panel of industry experts — honor the state’s best and brightest real estate companies, real estate agents, real estate brokers, mortgage companies, bankers, home builders, individuals who give back to the community, and those in the real estate business whose careers have left an indelible mark on the community and on the industry.

AREA AWARDS: MORTGAGE BANKER OF THE YEAR

Winner: Bill Rogers, Homeowners Financial Group

AREA Awards: Bill RogersHomeowners Financial Group is led by President and CEO Bill Rogers. On a collaborative leadership level, HFG created a program to help with the current housing and economic crisis for Valley employers called the Homeowners Benefits Program (HBP). It was apparent that Valley employees were and still are struggling with issues such as credit repair, foreclosure prevention and debt management, along with traditional home financing. The HBP provides Arizona companies a web-based solution with the education, tools and resources to help employees with their real estate and financial needs. Rogers and COO Bob Kennedy have also lobbied as part of the Mortgage Bankers Association, pushing to implement new laws to help stabilize housing in Arizona.


Honorable Mention: NOVA

Personal commitment to professional excellence and a strong desire to help others is the common thread among the loan officers at NOVA. Loan officers pride themselves on the relationships they forge with clients and their families. NOVA has served its customers since 1980 and are able to originate loans in 19 states. In 2001, the company merged its flexibility as a mortgage broker with the efficient service of a mortgage bank to create a better way of lending. Efficiency and teamwork are the keys to the company’s accelerated loan delivery. Loan applications are handled in-house from start to finish — eliminating the need to ship applications around the country for underwriting, approval and document preparation.
