Fortune Magazine’s ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ for 2018 includes several representatives of the mortgage and real estate industries.
The highest placed in this year’s list goes to mortgage lender Quicken Loans, which takes the 14th spot, and appears in the upper third of the list for the 15th consecutive year.
"Our team members are encouraged and expected to challenge the status quo every day. In fact, it's that very attitude that led us to reinvent the entire lending landscape from scratch through Rocket Mortgage," said Jay Farner, Quicken Loans CEO.
"Eliminating bureaucracy and empowering our team members in a collaborative atmosphere makes us stronger, faster and more inventive as a company. We are laser focused on giving our team members the resources and freedom they need to innovate, which includes opportunities to grow personally and professionally," added Farner.
Also in the top 50 listings are Capital One (17), which announced last year that it was exiting the mortgage business; Camden Property Trust (24); Veterans United Home Loans (32); David Weekley Homes (36); and Navy Federal Credit Union (42).
First American, which offers title insurance and other solutions for real estate insurance, is at 63 in this year’s list.
“Earning national recognition three years in a row as one of the best companies to work for, more than anything else, reflects the integrity, commitment and teamwork of our people,” said Dennis J. Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “Our commitment to putting people first starts with our employees and extends from there to our customers, our shareholders and the communities in which we work.”
