National Mortgage Professional magazine named us a top employer in the mortgage lending industry.
Exciting news! In their September 2021 issue, National Mortgage Professional (NMP) magazine named us one of the “Most Loved Employers” for this year.
What earned us this impressive moniker? NMP asked their readers for feedback on their employers – in the categories of compensation, loan turnaround time, marketing support, technology, culture, long-term strategy, day-to-day management, internal communications, training opportunities, industry participation, and innovation.
The 2021 list of "Most Loved Employers" includes companies that are known for promoting work-life balance; fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion; and supporting their people. We were recognized as a Bronze winner in the "Largest Number Of Senior Employees (10+ Years)" category. Many of our team members have been here 5+ years, and several others have celebrated their 10th anniversary recently. Since our company is only 21 years old, we think this is a pretty amazing feat!
We were thrilled to find out that our employees believe we are worthy of the "Most Mortgage Employers" recognition. We strive, every day, to provide a positive, engaging workplace that allows our team members to thrive in their professional roles. Plus, we focus on fostering a family-like culture that makes new employees feel welcome and included.
To ensure that we are on the right track to provide a supportive, fulfilling workplace, we periodically gather feedback from our team members. This was especially important when the COVID-19 pandemic caused us to re-structure our work environment (as many of our employees transitioned to working remotely last year, and then settled into a hybrid schedule of on-site and at-home work this year.) Our pandemic response plan helped our team members make the transition with ease.
See what our employees had to say about working at Waterstone Mortgage in our most recent survey, completed earlier this year:
“Waterstone has done a fantastic job with transitioning their employees to work from home. Anything I have needed at home to do my job has been provided to me. I feel the communication between myself and underwriters/closers has improved because everyone is using Jabber [instant messaging] or email to communicate.”
“I was shocked when I first started two months ago with how friendly and welcoming everyone was.”
“I LOVE my JOB and it’s not just a JOB – it’s so much more to me.”
“I have been here for over 3 years now and Waterstone Mortgage has changed my life! I love it here and I appreciate all of the hard work corporate does.”
“I am extremely grateful to be part of this amazing company.”
“Best career change I have ever made in my 35 years in the mortgage business.”
