The annual awards program is dedicated to recognizing the industry's premier employers


KALAMAZOO, MI (March 1, 2021) - Amerifirst Home Mortgage announces that it has been named one of the top 50 Best Mortgage Companies to Work For in 2021 by National Mortgage News and Best Companies Group.


National Mortgage News honored all the winners and revealed the final rankings in a special report published today (March 1, 2021).


Amerifirst ranked #48 on the list; in the large employer category (500 or more employees), it ranked #14 out of the top 16 companies.  


“The companies that are a part of this year’s ranking have demonstrated exemplary support for their teams during an unprecedented year of upheaval,” said Heidi Patalano, editor-in-chief of National Mortgage News at Arizent. “They’ve been nimble in adapting to circumstances surrounding the pandemic at the same time that origination demand has exploded. Each of this year’s honorees should be proud of the company culture they have fostered at such a challenging time.”2022_logos_NMN_BMCTWF (002)-1


“This is a tremendous honor,” said Mark Jones, Amerifirst Co-CEO and Co-Founder. “We are proud of our people-first culture and our strong set of “Core Values” that we have honed and refined over nearly 40 years in business. Culture is so important to us – it’s why we do what we do, it makes our workplace better, and it empowers our team to truly make a meaningful difference in the lives of our customers and communities. Our team is simply the best in the business.”


Companies from across the United States participated in a two-part survey process to determine the rankings. The top 50 companies were identified based on the evaluation of each company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics and through an employee survey that measured the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
