The Top Ten Mortgage Banking/Broker Companies for 2007

Posted by Jordan Crouch on February 26, 2008

The following is a list of the top ten mortgage banking/brokerage companies ranked by total origination volume between 10/1/2006 and 9/30/2007 . I am proud to say my firm made the list (#5) via our affiliation in the Strategic Alliance Mortgage LLC .

1. WACHOVIA CORP ($57.6B)
2. DEUTSCHE BANK COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE GROUP ($55.5B)
3. HOLLIDAY FENOGLIO FOWLER L.P. ($34.5B)
4. MERIDIAN CAPITAL GROUP L.L.C. ($15.5B)
5. STRATEGIC ALLIANCE MORTGAGE L.L.C. ($14.1B)
6. NORTHMARQ CAPITAL INC. ($12.1B)
7. CARLTON ($7B)
8. Q10 CAPITAL L.L.C. ($6.2B)
9. THE ACKMAN-ZIFF REAL ESTATE GROUP L.L.C. ($5B)
10. HYPO REAL ESTATE CAPITAL CORP. ($4.9B)

If my math is correct, these top ten firms originated over 212 Billion dollars in loans last year. With current credit markets in the dumps, what will 2008’s totals be? I don’t see Wachovia, Deutsche, or Hypo  having banner years. Each of these firms had a significant CMBS portion of their respective originations. CMBS loans are completely non-existent so far this year,  meaning the above list might look different at this time next year.
