Scotsman Guide, the leading resource for mortgage originators, announced this week that its online wholesale-mortgage-lender search engine received the Best Original Web Database award from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE). The national mortgage magazine’s search engine at scotsmanguide.com won the bronze award in this category.
Launched at the end of 2005, Scotsman Guide’s fast and free online wholesale-lender search engine allows mortgage brokers to find wholesale lenders that fit their specified criteria with just a few simple steps. Brokers can also save their searches for future use, view program details by lender and print their results in a matrix format. When searching for residential wholesale lenders, brokers can choose from seven mortgage-product categories: Prime, Alt-A, Nonprime, High CLTV, Construction, Hard Money and Warehouse Lines.
Scotsman Guide accepted the award at the ASBPE Awards of Excellence banquet on July 20 in Chicago.
ASBPE is the professional association for full-time and freelance editors employed in the business, trade and specialty press. Its annual Awards of Excellence competition recognizes the best in editorial, design and online journalistic achievement.
