Top originators share the key to retention at engage.talent summit

Panel unpacks the difference-making factors in choosing to stay at a company

Locking in a top originator is only half the battle when it comes to recruiting in the mortgage industry. It’s one thing to get new talent in the door, but it’s a completely different challenge to keep them there. With today’s high-stakes environment, the conversation around retention is just as vital to a company’s success as recruitment, making it a hot topic for discussion at engage.talent in Dallas on Feb. 6. 

The Recruiting and Retaining Top Originators panel features three of the highest producing originators in the industry, including the No. 1 originator in the nation, Shant Banosian, vice president of lending at Guaranteed Rate. In 2019 alone, he closed 1,906 units and funded $914 million in loans. 

The panel will also feature Movement Mortgage’s Mortgage Loan Officer Jennifer Micklos and loanDepot’s Branch Manager Sean Johnson, who has been ranked in the top 1% of originators since 2012. These three will share their perspective on how companies have supported them as industry-leading producers. 

While the industry is working together through events like engage.talent to attract more outsiders into the industry, companies still tend to look within the industry to hire their dream team, poaching top talent from their competition. Whether it’s through company-wide recognition, providing the right tools they need to compete or creating a culture they feel connected to, it’s extremely important for companies to intentionally find ways to empower their talent to succeed. 

Joel Epstein, host of The bigJOEL Show podcast and a top producer himself before becoming a sales coach for the country’s biggest companies, will moderate this elite panel, as they break apart the difference-making factors that cause talent to stay or move companies. 

HousingWire’s engage events are built upon a commitment to sharing tools and tips that businesses can use to elevate their platform. These leading panelists are providing just that and sharing the game-changing reasons that they’ve witnessed help attract and keep top talent on their team.  

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from the industry’s top originators on how to look beyond recruiting and win in the battle of retaining top talent. Register here for the engage.talent summit.
