The firm has been growing rapidly for the past several years. In 2012, Mortgage Master increased its originations to a record $7.3 billion, up from $5.5 billion in 2011.
Mortgage Master also reports that it was the leading lender, in terms of volume, for 2012 in Massachusetts. In addition, the firm maintained its number one position in the state for the first half of this year, with volume for Massachusetts alone reaching $2.17 billion.
