Gateway Named to the 2019 Top Mortgage Lenders List by Scotsman Guide

TULSA, Okla., June 8, 2020 – Gateway Mortgage Group, a division of Gateway First Bank, is proud to be named among Top Mortgage Lenders by Scotsman Guide. This year, Gateway placed 26th for overall volume and 25th for retail volume. In Correspondent, Gateway ranked 9th in volume with Delegated Correspondent also ranking 9th in volume.

Scotsman Guide‘s Top Mortgage Lenders is the industry’s most comprehensive, verified ranking of the nation’s top-producing mortgage companies. For over 10 years, Scotsman Guide has ranked top lending companies and originators based on dollar volume, most loans closed and performance in niche areas. The longevity, verification process and comprehensive scope of this list position it as a benchmark for the industry.

“We are incredibly pleased to be recognized as a Top Mortgage Lender by Scotsman Guide,” said Scott Gesell, CEO at Gateway. “Our momentum is a testament to our team’s persistent focus on families and the customers we serve. We are truly fortunate to have such an exceptional team.”

Gateway has seen record-breaking volume since 2019 and funded over $1 billion in residential mortgage loans in both April and May 2020. Hitting a new record high of $1 billion in a month for funding came just after the company celebrated the 20th anniversary and in the height of the COVID-10 pandemic. Gateway has originated more than $4.3 billion in mortgage loans year-to-date through May, putting the company on track to potentially surpass its record-breaking year of $7.7 billion funded loans in 2019.
