Southern Trust Mortgage wins Best Mortgage Companies to Work for 2021

With continued momentum after winning in 2020, Southern Trust Mortgage climbs to new heights to be named a Best Mortgage Company to Work for in 2021, marking back-to-back selections.

Virginia Beach, VA (March 1, 2021) – Southern Trust Mortgage has been named as one of the 2021 Best Mortgage Companies to Work for by National Mortgage News and Best Companies Group. This annual survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the U.S. mortgage industry. National Mortgage News honored all the winners and revealed the final rankings in a special report published in March 2021.

“Being recognized in back-to-back years as a Best Mortgage Company to Work is both humbling and encouraging,” said Jack Lane, President of Southern Trust Mortgage. “It’s no secret that lenders everywhere asked a lot of their people this year and we made a commitment to equally pour back into the lives and health of our team members. Building a great team is done on purpose, no matter the market climate.”


Companies from across the United States entered a two-part survey process to determine the National Mortgage News’ Best Mortgage Companies to Work for. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

“The companies that are a part of this year’s ranking have demonstrated exemplary support for their teams during an unprecedented year of upheaval,” said Heidi Patalano, editor-in-chief of National Mortgage News at Arizent. “They’ve been nimble in adapting to circumstances surrounding the pandemic at the same time that origination demand has exploded. Each of this year’s honorees should be proud of the company culture they have fostered at such a challenging time.”
