Independent Bank congratulates Matt Adler on his ranking in Scotsman Guide’s 2011 Top Originators list, the most intensely verified and comprehensive ranking of its kind. Adler was the first Michigan loan officer on the "most loans closed list," ranking #132.

Matt was ranked among entries from more than 800 mortgage professionals across the country. To be eligible for initial consideration in Scotsman Guide’s Top Originators rankings, originators must have had at least $30 million in loan volume or 100 closed home loans for the 2011 calendar year. Only loans and volume that originators closed personally could be considered. After receiving submissions, Scotsman Guide required written verification of top entrants’ volume from a certified public accountant, the chief financial officer at the originator's company or a similar source. This verification process makes Scotsman Guide’s Top Originators list the most accurate ranking of top-producing originators in the industry.
