Mortgage Brokerage Franchise Network Honored at National Awards Ceremony

Motto Franchising, LLC celebrates the network’s top business performers and leaders at the annual Motto MILE Summit in Houston

March 30, 2022 // // DENVER - Motto Mortgage held its fifth annual awards ceremony during its 2022 Motto Mortgage Innovation and Loan Excellence Summit (MILE) last week at the JW Marriott Houston by The Galleria. The Motto Mortgage Awards & Recognition Program recognizes outstanding achievements, exceptional service, leadership and high productivity.

“2021 was a year of growth for the Motto Mortgage brand and that is a testament to the hard work, dedication and pure grit of the entire Motto network,” said Ward Morrison, president and CEO of Motto Franchising, LLC. “From reaching nearly $3.5 billion in closed loan volume to helping almost 13,000 individuals and families realize their homeownership dreams last year, there are countless reasons to celebrate our network’s accomplishments. Big congratulations to all this year's award winners!”

“Winning the Outstanding New Office award is a major accomplishment for our team, and we couldn’t have done it without the ongoing support of the Motto Network,” said Tracy Holtsclaw, broker owner of Motto Mortgage Home Group. “We had past origination experience but never thought in our wildest dreams we’d ever attempt to own a mortgage brokerage. Motto was instrumental in giving us the tools necessary to make us successful by offering a structured startup with continued support and direction including marketing, compliance, advice, and branding, which is HUGE. There is so much opportunity for growth within the Motto network and from here, the sky is the limit.”
