CMG Financial Celebrates Record-Breaking Month in May 2024, Demonstrating Remarkable Growth Amid Industry Contraction

News posted On June 26, 2024

SAN RAMON, CA – CMG Financial, a leading privately-held mortgage banking firm, is proud to announce record-breaking growth in May 2024. CMG Financial achieved a monthly funding of $2.61 billion last month, with a record-breaking $1.96 billion coming from its retail division, CMG Home Loans. In addition to the company's overall growth, hundreds of loan officers have broken their personal production records in the past three months. This success – both individually and organization-wide – underscores CMG’s ability to thrive and grow in an environment where many mortgage companies are contracting.


Factors Behind CMG’s Growth

Recently, CMG Home Loans went from the #13 lender in the nation to the #6 retail lender in the nation according to Scotsman Guide. It also was the top growth lender of 2023, climbing 19.9% while other top lenders were losing ground. CMG has seen notable growth in size over the past year with the addition of three new companies and retail acquisition of Homebridge Financial Services. While this has certainly been a contributing factor to the company’s increased production levels, it’s not the only factor. Originators are breaking their own records at CMG, thus contributing to the company’s overall success.


Celebrating Record-Breaking Originators

Out of the loan officers who have been at CMG for more than a year, 291 have broken their prior CMG production records in the past three months:


  • 156 originators had record breaking production of at least $2 million
  • 94 originators had record breaking production of at least $3 million
  • 49 originators had record breaking production of at least $4 million
  • 29 originators had record breaking production of at least $5 million
  • 19 originators had record breaking production of at least $6 million
