Floify shares findings from survey of 150 top-producing loan originators

BOULDER, Colo. -- Floify, the mortgage industry's leading point-of-sale (POS) solution, commissioned an independent study of 150 high-performing loan originators (LOs) in 2023 to gain recruiting and retention insights. "High-performing" LOs were defined as being in the top 20% of closed loan dollars or volume.

"With potential borrowers waiting on the sidelines because of high interest rates and rising home prices, it's never been more important to have high-performing loan officers on staff to bring in every last possible dollar. Our goal with this survey was to understand how employers can recruit, engage and retain top-producing loan officers in the context of current market conditions," said Sofia Rossato, Floify's president and general manager.

"From the survey results we see a disconnect from what employers may be offering their top producers and what motivates top producers to stay or look around for greener pastures," said Rossato. "Sometimes it's the simple things - healthcare, a fun work environment or a good work-life balance that LOs find motivating - but again and again we found support with the best technology available, training and the ability to customize their tech stack to be very important."

The survey found 89% of high-performing LOs said that not having access to digital mortgage tools is a reason to consider moving to a different company, while 95% said that flexibility to customize the technology they use is the top factor to their success. Ninety-three percent of top-performing LOs said they wanted a faster and easier way to collect documents from customers, but only 38% were "definitely happy" with their current method.

Among the survey's other key findings is that 89% of top-performing LOs would seriously consider leaving for another company if that company offered a 20% increase in compensation.
