Congratulations to the Newest Top Producing Loan Officers
Congrats to our lending partners who made the list of Top Producing Loan Officers for the second half of 2016!
The Minnesota Housing Top Producing Loan Officer Program awards outstanding loan officers biannually at three levels: Platinum, Gold, and Silver. Loan officers meeting the threshold for each level based on regional production are recognized as top producers, and demonstrate a deep understanding of Minnesota Housing’s homebuyer loan programs.
We want to see your name on the next list! Whether you're shooting for Platinum level or working to become a Top Producer for the first time, you have until June 30 to commit your loans for the period of January 1-June 30, 2017. Just make sure you're taking these steps: 
  1. Contact your Web Administrator to be set up as a contact in the HDS SF Web Application system if not completed already.
  2. Claim your loans with your name in the Loan Officer field. Instructions on how to claim your loans can be found on the Minnesota Housing website.
  3. Get your loans purchase approved by Minnesota Housing in the HDS SF Web Application system.
