SAN RAMON, Calif., May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CMG Financial, a well-capitalized, privately held mortgage-banking firm headquartered in San Ramon, California, congratulates Carey Ann Cyr and Jill Lyons for ranking on Scotsman Guide's inaugural list of the Top 200 Women Originators nationwide. Carey Ann Cyr, area sales manager, Franklin, Tennessee placed fifth overall with a $147.4 million production volume. Jill Lyons, sales manager, San Ramon, California placed 113th overall with a $60,915,147 production volume.
In 2018, the National Association of Realtors reported 63% of their agents were women. However, on the mortgage side of the real estate transaction, women are still underrepresented. The STRATMOR Group reported only 39% of mortgage originators were women in 2017. To highlight women originators and their substantial contributions to the industry, Scotsman Guide compiled its first list of the Top Women Originators based on data from the thousands of submissions to the annual Top Originators Rankings published last month.
Carey Ann Cyr and Jill Lyons are both members of CMG Financial's prestigious President's Club and elite Chairman's Club because of their outstanding production volume and commitment to customer service. They are consistently recognized by trade publications as top producers. Cyr also placed in four Scotsman Guide categories, including #39 Top Dollar Volume, #16 Most Closed Loans, #26 Top Purchase Volume and #3 Top FHA Volume. Lyons also placed in two other Scotsman Guide Top Originator categories, including #467 Top Dollar Volume and #3 Top HELOC volume.
