Hicks and Fooshee Named on Prestigious List

New Jersey-based residential mortgage lender First Choice Loan Services Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of First Choice Bank, proudly announces Branch Manager Brent Hicks and Loan Originator Michael Fooshee are featured on the “Best Mortgage Professionals” list published in the July, 2015, issue of D Magazine. It is the first year for both mortgage originators to appear on the list.
“It’s an incredible honor to be featured as one of the best mortgage professionals in Dallas,” said Fooshee. “The Dallas metroplex offers a lot of options when it comes to home financing, so it means a great deal to be recognized as the top in the industry for the community I serve.”
To comprise the list of the “Best Mortgage Professionals,” D Magazine sends ballots to over 15,000 individuals including previous Best Real Estate Agent winners, D Magazine subscribers, mortgage and title companies, and recent home buyers. Real estate agents were asked to nominate up to three professionals with whom they have worked closely. D Magazine subscribers and recent home buyers were asked to evaluate one professional with whom they have worked, based on overall satisfaction and if they’d recommend the professional to a friend. Each nominee ranking high in the resulting data was then was then screen with the Texas Real Estate Commission, Texas Department of Savings and Mortgage Lending, and Texas Department of Insurance databases; this was to verify that certain that licenses were up to date and there had been no disciplinary action against them. Those featured on this list represent just less than 3 percent of the Dallas area mortgage professionals.
“To know that this list comes from a wide array of folks including our clients, business partners and colleagues in the mortgage industry makes it mean even that much more,” said Hicks. “Our goal is to provide a ‘WOW’ experience for those we work with and make everyone raving fans of the mortgage services we provide. Being named as the ‘Best Mortgage Professionals’ by D Magazine just reinforces that we are accomplishing just that and motivates us to continue to work harder to uphold this reputation.”
