National Mortgage News recently announced its rankings for the 2021 Best Mortgage Companies to Work For - ranking Atlantic Bay #1 for large companies.

The months-long program is focused on recognizing the industry’s premier employers through a series of company questionnaires and employee surveys. Companies are ranked both overall and by company size.

“I’m very proud of our team. It really is all about them,” Brian Holland, CEO of Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group said.

Receiving top honors for large mortgage companies to work for (500+ employees) and #2 nationally overall is humbling and we believe that it’s our team of wonderful people that set us up for success.

After 24 years in business and a 97% employee satisfaction rate (based on National Mortgage News employee survey results), it’s unlikely to find an unhappy team member.

“I’m allowed to be me,” replied one employee during the survey process. “I’m allowed to voice my opinions. I never feel like it’s profits over people or that my clients are just a number. Everyone that I have ever interacted with at ABMG bleeds genuine care for one another, for their job, and for our clients. I’m proud to work alongside the best in the business and love my ABMG family.” 

Since 1996, we’ve been privileged to serve more than 130,000 families - and that requires a “one-team” approach to lend; meaning that each of our mortgage bankers is matched with a dedicated operations team consisting of an underwriter, processor, compliance specialist and a closer.

While that approach might not mean much to an outsider, it means an awful lot when you know exactly where your borrowers’ paperwork is every single time. And that’s just it, we value our team, we believe in our mortgage bankers and we grow with our clients.

"It’s a family vibe. We really support one another, we work hard, we play hard. If you want to be part of something that you feel like you’re truly part of something, we’re the place to be," said Christopher Brown, Market Leader in Charlotte, N.C.

200+ Atlantic Bay Team Members Have Been with ABMG for More Than 10 Years.

There’s a reason that more than 200 of our employees have been here for more than 10 years, and that more than 90 have been here for five. Then, you meet someone who is new to the family and truly feels the Atlantic Bay difference.

“I have only been here 3 months and this organization has made me feel more wanted than any job I've had to date. From the customer service and treatment by all fellow employees, the extra time each person spends just to help one another, little things DO go a long way,” according to an Atlantic Bay employee who participated in the employee survey.

Each team member here at Atlantic Bay has their own story to tell, some have children at home while others have furry friends. We take time to hear each of their stories because we’re one big family. Atlantic Bay provides a culture surrounding the happiness of our team. And while large, we still take time to get to know each and every person.

“We just have an amazing team, and it transcends throughout our organization,” Holland said. “I look at our employees/our team as my clients; I want to keep them happy and make sure we are giving them opportunities to grow and have a work/life balance.”
