Sep 18, 2023

InterLinc Mortgage, a Houston based full-service mortgage lender, has been awarded the Houston Chronicle's list of Top Workplaces for 2023 for the fourth year in a row. Based solely on employee feedback, the survey is gathered through a third-party technology partner, Energage LLC. Employees are measured on 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including: alignment, execution, and connection.,

"Knowing that our employees, not profits, made this award possible makes it a true honor," says Gene Thompson, InterLinc CEO and President. "Our business success would not be possible without our associates that execute with intention each and every day. The past two years have been tough, but I wouldn't have wanted to traverse them with any other team. InterLinc employees are resilient, and this award speaks to that. We've continued to experience business success because of the commitment to personal growth that our employees and company hold."

InterLinc has made an impact across Houston, the surrounding areas and beyond over the past few years, making 2023 no exception. Other recent accolades include Houston Business Journal Fast 100 award for upward revenue growth, Best Mortgage Company to Work For by National Mortgage News and recognition for being one of the fast-growing companies in the southwest by Inc. Regionals. Additionally, the company has opened new branches in The Woodlands, Kingwood, Cypress and Northwest Houston.

"The values of our company ring true to me and each employee that calls this company home," says Senior Vice President James Durham. "When hiring, we truly consider it a two-way street. Our culture hasn't been built by making flippant decisions. We aim to grow with like-minded individuals who want to take their career to the next level with us. Being named a Top Workplace by the Chronicle is an award that each of us here at InterLinc can point to and be proud of having a part in making happen."

The boutique culture of InterLinc can be attributed to the hands-on leadership of both Thompson and Durham. By placing a strategic focus on relationships and culture, the company has attracted new talent during a changing market. Production volume for loan originators have proven the strategy, as the lender recently placed #1 on the Scotsman Guide amongst independent mortgage banking competitors for highest production in volume and units per Loan Originator.

"One of the details that really caught our attention was that this is a big company with a very friendly, family environment," says Branch Manager, Arturo Aguilar. Aguilar and his branch in Kingwood, Texas brought their talents to InterLinc in 2023 after being impressed by the support and opportunities that InterLinc could provide them.

As InterLinc looks toward 2024 and beyond, their commitment to providing a "service without exception" experience for their borrowers, partners, and employees remains.
