Lastly, for loan originators, Shashank Shekhar, founder and CEO of InstaMortgage in San Jose, Calif., was the number one loan originator, with 400 closed mortgages in 2022.
In order to submit an application, AREAA expected individual agents to have generated at least 15 transaction sides or $6 million in sales volume in 2022. Teams needed to have at least 25 transaction sides and $9 million in sales volume, plus the team lead had to be an AREAA member. On the other hand, loan officers could simply submit an application directly to AREAA.
