Five Star Professional is pleased to announce Jim Baker, Summit Mortgage Corporation, has been chosen as one of Philadelphia’s Five Star Mortgage Professionals for 2016.

Five Star Professional partnered with Philadelphia magazine to recognize a select group of Philadelphia-area mortgage professionals who provide quality services to their clients. Less than 2 percent in the area were selected. Jim Baker is featured, along with other award winners, in a special section of the September issue.

“Having started in this business 25-plus years ago, I have seen significant changes. The one constant is people buying homes. They still rely on someone who can make the purchasing process as smooth and understandable as possible. Whether someone is a first-time homebuyer or someone moving up, it can still be a stressful experience. I stay in touch with my borrowers via email and phone to keep them informed throughout the process so that there are never any surprises,” says Jim Baker of Summit Mortgage Corporation.

The Five Star Mortgage Professional award program is conducted in more than 30 markets throughout North America. Mortgage professionals are measured using an objective, in-depth research methodology with significant focus on customer feedback and overall satisfaction.

“I appreciate that fact that the Realtors and borrowers trust me to assist them with the largest purchases that they can make for the families,” says Jim.

“We aim to uncover the best mortgage professionals across the country. To ensure that we recognize those with the highest of standards, we go to the source — we gather client feedback and use a rigorous research methodology to evaluate candidates and determine qualified winners.” - Josh Kimball, VP Marketing, Five Star Professional.

About the research process:

Now entering its 13th year, Five Star Professional conducts in-depth, market-specific research in more than 45 markets across the United States and Canada to identify premium service professionals.
