AMC is Fastest-Growing Mortgage-Related Firm

Inc. ranking based on revenue growth

Aug. 23, 2012

By Mortgage Daily staff

The latest list of America's fastest-growing companies is in, and an appraisal management company ranked highest among mortgage related firms. In all, three appraisal firms held top-10 positions among mortgage-related companies. Default service providers also had a strong presence.

Among all industries, Unified Payments is the fastest-growing U.S. company, according to the Inc. 5000. The North Miami Beach, Fla., firm, which provides payment processing services for merchants, generated $59.5 million in revenues last year with just 31 employees.

Unified Payments only had $0.3 million in 2008 revenues, putting its three-year growth rate at 23,646 percent -- the highest rate of any company covered in Inc.'s report.

But when it comes to companies that are tied to real estate finance, it was Valuation Management Group that ranked highest. The Marietta, Ga.-based AMC increased its revenues by 6,267 percent over the prior three years to $34.3 million in 2011 -- landing it in the No. 29 spot overall. The 62-employee firm, however, fell from No. 22 the prior year.

No. 80 on the overall list and the second-highest ranking mortgage-related entity was 43-employee Innotion Enterprises. The Arlington, Va.-based company, which provides property management, marketing and sales services for real-estate-owned assets, had 2011 revenues of $35.8 million and a three-year growth rate of 3,500 percent. Innotion was No. 194 the previous year.

Next was Sherman Oaks, Calif.-based Landmark Network, which provides residential real estate appraisal management, alternative valuation and post-closing quality control audit services for community banks, mortgage companies and credit unions. While last year's revenues at the 36-employee firm were only $4.3 million, its 2,751 percent three-year growth rate was enough to rank it No. 108 on the overall list.

Matt Martin Real Estate Management, which specializes in property marketing and management and component servicing, ranked 116. Operating from Arlington, Va., the 110-employee company saw its revenues shoot up 2,669 percent over the prior three years to $31.4 million in 2011. An announcement from founder Matt Martin said that "all indicators point to continued expansion ahead."

The fifth-highest ranking mortgage-related firm, and No. 122 overall, was Maitland, Fla.-based Digital Risk -- where revenues were up 2,614 percent to $79.7 million last year. The mortgage compliance service provider has added 839 employees over the past three years, and headcount now stands at 921. Among its former employees is George Zimmerman, the confessed killer of Trayvon Martin.

"We are proud of our growth and our ability to quickly scale yet maintain stringent quality and performance standards, and we are already prepared to tackle the problems in future market cycles," Digital Risk Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Peter Kassabov said in a statement.

With a three-year growth rate of 2,540 percent and 2011 revenues of $10.6 million, Loan Resolution grabbed the No. 126 spot. The Scottsdale, Ariz.-based company, which has 207 employees, "specializes in the purchase of distressed mortgages and real property, resolving delinquent mortgages, auctioning short sales and REOs, selling bank-owned homes and providing property management services."

No. 128 on Inc.'s list and the highest-ranked mortgage originator was New American Mortgage in Charlotte, N.C. The 415-employee mortgage banker generated $35.7 million in 2011 revenues, putting its three-year growth rate at 2,478 percent. New American says that it is a "realtor-centric mortgage company."

Motivity Solutions followed with a 1,736 percent growth rate and $2.4 million in revenues. The mortgage technology service provider ranked No. 210 on the overall list. Denver-based Motivity has just 18 employees.

Columbia, S.C.-based Resource Financial was next at No. 227 on the overall list. The 49-employee company has increased its revenues 1,600 percent to $7.0 million last year. Resource Financial provides mortgage banking and insurance services to real estate professionals, builders, and individual homebuyers.

No. 10 among all mortgage-related firms and No. 273 on Inc.'s overall ranking was ACT Appraisal Management. The 30-employee AMC had a 1,317 percent growth rate and $4.0 million in revenues last year.

Other organizations that didn't rank among the 10 fastest-growing mortgage-related firms but did announce that they were among the 5,000 fastest-growing companies overall included No. 1,449 AmeriFirst Home Mortgage, No. 1,509 Guaranteed Rate Inc., No. 1,633 USA Mortgage, No. 2,430 Total Mortgage Services LLC, and No. 2,730 Nationwide Title Clearing Inc.
