San Ramon, CA — National mortgage media group HousingWire announced the 2021 Women of Influence. CMG Financial’s Eastern Divisional Sales Manager, Tammy Turner, was honored on the 11th installment of this annual list of leading women in the mortgage, real estate, and fintech industries.  Tammy was recognized for her passion for promoting homeownership, her intuitive mentorship, and her proven success growing the Eastern Division. 

In her past five years at CMG Financial, Tammy has grown her division from 5 offices, primarily in 2 states with less than 100 employees, to 50 locations in 16 states, with over 600 employees.  Total production has increased from $600 million in 2016 to $5.2 billion in 2020, a nearly 900% growth rate.

"Another way to describe our Women of Influence honorees this year would be the women who are making an impact, which is something we saw woven into each of these amazing award winners,” Brena Nath, HW+ managing editor, said.

In 2020, Tammy’s division led the way in finding efficiencies.  From origination to underwriting, Tammy and her leadership team created better reporting and a feedback loop on file quality.  Through the changes she implemented, she was able to increase her loans per employee by 50%, and underwriting decisions per day by 40%.  60 days after her pilot program, Tammy’s strategies were adopted by the entire Retail Channel, leading to a record 2020 with total originations doubling from $7.5 billion to $15 billion.   

“The winners of the Women of Influence award are truly remarkable! The contribution of these incredibly accomplished leaders to our industry is hard to overstate,” HousingWire Editor in Chief Sarah Wheeler said. “We’re excited to honor them and shine a spotlight on their achievements.”
