Mortgage 1 Loan Officers Recognized as MSHDA Top Producers for 2019

11 Mortgage 1 loan officers were recognized as MHSDA top performers in 2019.

Eleven Mortgage 1 Officers Among the Best in the State 

We’ve always said Mortgage 1 has the best loan officers in Michigan. Now it’s confirmed. 

Eleven Mortgage 1 loan officers were recognized recently by the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) as “top producers” for 2019 for the MI Home Loan program. Top Loan Officer status is determined by the annual mortgage production per region. 

The 11 Mortgage 1 honorees, in alphabetical order, are:

• Steve Caldwell
• Dawn Conners (Symington)
• Scott DeWolf
• Dan Grzywacz
• Amy Hendrickson
• Dave Lehner
• Joseph Migliaccio
• Scott Reilly
• Lisa Whitman
• Michelle Wilson
• Hayley Woodworth

Mortgage 1 had the largest contingent of MI Loan top producers among all lenders in the state. Mortgage 1 was the MSHDA’s top overall lender for 2019 and has been MSHDA’s number one lender each year since 2013 — seven straight years!

“When it comes to helping first-time home buyers, we like to think we are the best. This recognition proves it. Mortgage 1 has been Michigan’s top MSHDA lender for seven-straight years now. It is something we pride ourselves on. These 11 loan officers deserve the individual accolades they earned. They exemplify everything we strive for every day,” says Mortgage 1 CEO Mark Workens.


Each of the honorees will be listed on a special MSHDA web page and will be able to display an icon on their website, on social media and in email that recognizes them as a top MSHDA lender for 2019. They will also receive certificates and plaques signed by the Governor.
