BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EagleBank, today, announced the addition of Mehdi Pirzadeh, another outstanding loan producer who placed #41 on Scotsman Guide 2012 Top Originators List. Ranking for this national list is based on total loan dollar volume for the year. EagleBank's Residential Lending team earned the Bank fifth place nationwide on the "Most Ranked Originators on Top Volume List."
Pirzadeh has closed over $100-million in loan volume every year since 2005, thus his continued ranking, nationwide, in Scotsman Guide Top 100 Mortgage Originators.
