DALLAS, Texas, Dec. 27, 2017 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Cooksey Team, a top producing retail branch of Mid America Mortgage, Inc., announced today that its founder Michael Cooksey has been named one of “The 40 Most Influential Mortgage Professionals Under 40” for 2017 by industry trade magazine National Mortgage Professional.

Mike Cooksey
In selecting Cooksey for this honor, the magazine noted his accomplishments as founder of The Cooksey Team, specifically citing the success his loan originators (LOs) have enjoyed under his tutelage and leadership. While the Mortgage Bankers Association reports that LOs, on average, achieve 2.4 closings per month, Cooksey Team LOs average nearly three times that, achieving six closings per month, while also earning at least $250,000 annually.

“My philosophy has always been that helping the people around me grow to become the best versions of themselves is how I will achieve success,” Cooksey said. “Individual awards like these are always gratifying, but I would be remiss if I didn’t note the role my staff plays in helping me achieve these honors. This is just as much their award as it is mine, and I’m deeply grateful for the team I have working with me.”

According to the magazine’s December issue, this year’s class, “exemplif[ies] professionalism and top production in today’s housing market. Despite the rough waters of the U.S. economy and the ever-shifting landscape known as the mortgage industry, these 40 professionals have persevered in a time of regulatory uncertainty.”
