BISMARCK, ND – North Dakota Housing Finance Agency (NDHFA) has been designated one of the Best Mortgage Companies to Work for in 2024 by National Mortgage News.

“We are honored to receive this recognition three years in a row,” said Dave Flohr, the agency’s executive director. “In 2023, 1,752 households successfully purchased a home through NDHFA’s programs. From acquisition to servicing, the work our staff does every day to go above and beyond for our borrowers does not go unnoticed.”

Through its FirstHome™ program, NDHFA primarily assists first-time homebuyers in achieving homeownership by providing low-cost mortgages along with down payment and closing cost assistance. Single parents, veterans, and families with disabled or elderly household members can qualify for similar help through HomeAccess. The agency’s North Dakota Roots program assists households who require assistance to buy again or whose income exceeds the limits of the agency’s FirstHome program. Additional information on agency programs, participating lenders, and FirstHome Certified Agents can be found online at www.ndhfa.org.

“We couldn’t be prouder of our team. It is a testament to the incredible people we have at NDHFA. Beyond the commitment to our mission of affordable housing, it’s our team’s passion and camaraderie that sets us apart,” said Brandon Dettlaff, NDHFA homeownership division director.

National Mortgage News and Best Companies Group’s annual survey and awards program identifies, recognizes, and honors the best employers in the U.S. mortgage industry. This year’s list included 33 companies who were identified as the winners with the final rankings revealed in a special report published in National Mortgage News on March 4.

According to National Mortgage News, “The mortgage companies in the market today are survivors and those that landed in the Best Mortgage Companies to Work For are especially worthy of commendation. Not only have they persevered amid some of the toughest conditions we’ve seen in a while, but they’re also considered by their staffers as being supportive employers of choice. National Mortgage News congratulates these lenders for maintaining a strong company culture at a time of less-than-optimal conditions.”

NDHFA is a self-supporting and mission-driven state agency dedicated to making housing affordable for all North Dakotans. The North Dakota Industrial Commission, consisting of Governor Doug Burgum as chairman, Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring and Attorney General Drew H. Wrigley, oversees the agency.
