Each year, the independent Five Star Professional company team evaluates and awards its distinguished designation to only a handful of top real estate professionals, based on a careful vetting process that relies on nominations from consumers and real estate industry agents alike.
Less than 7% of the mortgage professionals in the San Diego area were deemed qualified to receive this year's prestigious award.
For 2012, Awards candidates were evaluated against five objective criteria, to include a high client satisfaction rating and a lack of history of of regulatory and consumer complaints. Evaluation criteria further included satisfying all applicable state licensing requirements, being actively employed as a mortgage professional for a minimum of 3 years, and satisfying a minimum production transaction level on a one year and three year basis. More than 20,000 San Diego households that consisted of those who purchased a home over $150,000 between September 2011 to May 2012, received surveys in the mail and were asked to rate their experiences with real estate professionals who serviced them.
Gary Cooper, President of Mountain Trust Mortgage & Realty noted: “It is tremendously gratifying to be recognized as a Five Star Professional for our work on behalf of San Diego's community and consumers. As a licensed REALTOR with more than 21 years of mortgage and real estate industry experience, my number one goal has always been to educate clients with regard to all of the options they have available and to always place their own best interests ahead of my company. Receiving this kind of confirmation makes that decision all the more meaningful.”
The Five Star Mortgage Professional program, now in its fifth year, professes to be the largest, most widely published mortgage professional awards program in North America. Five Star Mortgage Professionals publishes the names of those it recognizes in 40 local markets in each city's leading magazine and on fivestarprofessional.com. Professionals featured in the research phase and the final list of award winners do not pay a fee to be included in these aspects.
