Washington Business Journal Lists Apex Among Region’s Leading Lenders

Rockville, MD – May 2, 2017 – Apex Home Loans has ranked 16th on Washington Business Journal’s (WBJ) list of the Top Home Mortgage Lenders in the Washington-metro area. The ranking, which is determined based on annual loan volume data, marks the 11th year Apex Home Loans has been recognized by the publication. Among the other independent mortgage banks on the list, Apex ranked 6th in terms of loan volume.

“We’re continuing to strive for better, not bigger, and our growth in the metro area is a clear sign that our approach is having an impact,” Apex CEO Craig Strent said. “We’re extremely grateful to our customers and partners for making us a permanent part of this community.”

Compared to the loan volume that awarded Apex Home Loans a ranking on this list in 2016, the company has experienced an over 70 percent increase in metro-area volume. Putting that in perspective with the company’s overall growth, the branch locations at Apex have doubled in the last three-and-a-half years, and the staff grew to over 100 in the last fiscal year.

The recognition arrives on the heels of local and national outlets taking notice of the company for its culture, workplace perks, and community-driven approach. Apex was selected as one of Washingtonian’s 50 Great Places to Work in March, and it was featured in SmartCEO magazine as one of the best-run companies in the mid-Atlantic and a Future 50 award winner.
