Wednesday, February 5 at Spring House Brewing Co, Residential Mortgage Services Inc (RMS), a leading independent, purchase-focused mortgage lender, serving primarily the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Eastern Seaboard markets, presented a $10,000 check to Adopt-A-Wish program during an employee appreciation event to celebrate the Mid-Atlantic region reaching a record $1.3 billion in mortgage loan volume in 2019. The check was mostly made up of employee contributions from the Mid-Atlantic region.

The Adopt-A-Wish program helps to ensure that the Make-A-Wish foundation has the funds to grant the wishes of every eligible child. RMS has raised $80,000 total for the Adopt-A-Wish program since 2016. “Our employees are committed to and actively involved in giving back to the communities that we live and work in,” said Bob Johnson, Executive Vice President of RMS. Bob Johnson and James Seely, President and Chief Executive Officer of RMS, presented the $10,000 check at the event to Dennis Heron, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia, Delaware & Susquehannah Valley.

Employees from the RMS Lancaster regional operations center were treated to a night of games and refreshments as a thank-you for all the hard work in 2019 that lead the Mid-Atlantic region to reaching the $1.3 billion milestone. Jim Prieto, Executive Vice President, Retail Production and John Gaglia, Area Manager, made the trip to attend the festivities from the RMS Bedford, NH regional operations center.

2019 was a record year for RMS company-wide. RMS generated record mortgage loan volume of $5 billion in 2019, a 27.4% increase compared to 2018, when RMS originated $3.9 billion. “We are excited to have reached the $5 billion origination growth milestone,” said James Seely, President and Chief Executive Officer of RMS. “More importantly, we are extremely proud of the continued commitment and dedication of all our team members, who are the driving force behind our culture of collaboration, industry-leading customer experience, and our company’s overall success.”
