Honoring 2021 Lending Luminaries

A luminary is defined as “a person who inspires or influences others.” And that type of person is exactly who PROGRESS in Lending is looking to honor. Right now the market is filled with uncertainty. We are still dealing with the impact of a pandemic. This pandemic is changing how mortgage lending is done. Increasingly more and more is moving electronic and remote.

What does this mean? The lending market will remain in flux for some time to come. But a true Lending Luminary will better handle and navigate constantly fluctuating market conditions.  These mortgage bankers, lenders, servicers, technology executives, consultants, etc. will help their companies and this industry thrive.  In exchange for their tireless effort, we at PROGRESS in Lending are looking to reward their efforts with the second annual Lending Luminary Award.  These executives deserve to be recognized for their industry vision and leadership.  So, apply now
