Associated Bank mortgage loan originator Ed Currie from Chicago was recently recognized by Scotsman Guide for ranking as a 2015 Top Originator. Currie has made this list consecutively since 2010.


Currie was ranked #31 in Top Dollar Volume and #10 in Top Purchase Volume. His top dollar volume rose to more than $174M with 242 closed loans, and his top purchase volume reached nearly $143M with 185 purchase loans.


“Ed continually demonstrates exceptional sales performance and achievements as a mortgage lender and is very deserving of this recognition,” said John Horton, senior residential loan manager, Associated Bank. “Associated is proud to have such an elite mortgage professional delivering outstanding service to our customers.”


Currie was ranked among entries from more than 2,400 mortgage professionals across the country. To be eligible for initial consideration in Scotsman Guide’s Top Originators rankings, originators must have had at least $40 million in loan volume or 100 closed home loans for the 2015 calendar year. After receiving submissions, Scotsman Guide required written verification of top entrants’ volume data from a certified public accountant, the chief financial officer at the originator's company or a similar source.


Scotsman Guide, the leading resource for mortgage originators, released its seventh annual Top Originators rankings on April 1. The list, which ranks the nation's top mortgage producers, appears in Scotsman Guide's April 2016 residential edition, and the rankings are available online at
