The Money Source Recognized as a Top National Mortgage Employer for the Third Consecutive Year

Jun 30 2017


The Money Source, a rapidly expanding national mortgage lender and mortgage loan servicer based in New York, has been recognized as a winner of the 2017 Bay Area Best Places To Work awards for the third consecutive year in a row.

The awards program, presented by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal, has honored The Money Source for creating an exceptional workplace valued by its employees.

Award applicants were evaluated and ranked across 5 categories according to the number of Bay Area employees.  The ranking found companies in the region whose employees rate them as the highest on such values as fun, collaborative culture, solid compensation and benefits offerings and other amenities as well as management practices.

“We’ve been working to challenge the status quo about what a mortgage company can and will do for more than a decade now,” said Darius Mirshahzadeh, CEO of The Money Source. “When you create a workplace of happy, fulfilled employees, you start a chain reaction of spreading happiness to clients and partners.”

“It’s incredibly gratifying and humbling to be considered one of the best companies in the bay, and we plan to keep up the momentum –– engaging our employees and working with them to grow The Money Source hand-in-hand.”

The recognition follows a year of awards and accolades for The Money Source. The company was recently highlighted as one of America’s Top Mortgage Employers by National Mortgage Professional Magazine.

The Money Source was also recently named a Silver Stevie® Award winner in the first annual Stevie Awards for Great Employers.

  • The donor cousin must provide a signed letter of explanation that explicitly states the familial relationship between the borrower and the cousin.
    • Stating: “Joe Smith is my cousin.” is not an acceptable explanation.

  • The donor cousin must be a first cousin only. Second cousins and beyond will not be accepted.

Top 10 Benefits of Partnership with The Money Source Inc.

Consumers Remain Highly Confident

Mar 31 2017


There were two main influences on mortgage rates over the past week. The canceled vote on the health care bill was positive for mortgage rates, while an impressive rise in consumer confidence was negative. The offsetting effects resulted in mortgage rates ending the week a little lower.

Last week, President Trump was unable to gather enough votes to pass the health care bill and the vote was canceled late Friday afternoon. This increased investor concerns about Trump's ability to deliver his business friendly policy changes in other areas. Policies which stimulate growth are good for the economy, but they raise the outlook for future inflation. Investors had pushed mortgage rates higher in anticipation of his policy changes. As a result, reduced expectations were good for mortgage rates. 

MortgageNews_3-31.pngTuesday's report on Consumer Confidence from the Conference Board showed an enormous increase to the highest level in a decade. Solid gains were seen in optimism about both present and future economic conditions. Higher confidence levels generally lead to increased future economic activity, so this data was broadly applauded, but it was not good for mortgage rates.

Encouraging news in the housing sector continued this week. In February, the Pending Home Sales index rose 5.5% from January to the second best level in a decade. There are two reports each month which measure sales of previously owned homes. The report on sales of existing homes measures closings during the month, while pending sales measure contracts signed, making the Pending Home Sales data a leading indicator of future closings.

Looking ahead, the important monthly Employment report will be released on Friday. As usual, this data on the number of jobs, the unemployment rate, and wage inflation will be the most highly anticipated economic data of the month. Before that, the ISM national manufacturing index and Construction Spending will be released on Monday. The ADP Employment Change and the ISM national services index will come out on Wednesday.
