Province Mortgage Earns Top Ranking for ‘Best Places to Work in RI’ by the PBN
On Thursday, June 14th several of the Province employees joined their company president, Dave Currie at the “Best Places to Work in RI” banquet held each year at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Warwick, RI. The enormous outdoor tent was lavishly decorated and buzzing with excitement as over 500 people from some of the most successful and prominent companies in the state anticipated their company ranking. Three giant screens sported images of employees loving their work as the host for the evening shared the many hi-lights as to why each company deserved to be in attendance this special night.
The employees at the Province table were already gleaming with pride as their company had earned this prestigious honor given annually by the Providence Business News for the fourth straight year. The “four-peat” in and of itself was worth celebrating and exciting enough, as 2012 marks only the seventh year in business for Province since opening it’s doors in 2005. As the emcee read on through the rankings for the Small Companies category, it became gradually apparent to the group that Province was in the top 5 out of 12. With Province not being one of the next three companies the team began to celebrate being one of the top two! Could it be that a mortgage company like Province can in fact weather the storm known as the US economy as well as the nastiest mortgage market we’ve seen in decades? Finally, the emcee made the announcement…
In 2005, Province Mortgage Associates was just another mortgage broker in a sea of mortgage companies, banks, and credit unions based in the state of RI. Let’s just say it: a mortgage is a mortgage and anyone will give you a rate quote these days that hovers in a familiar ball park. Now, seven years later, how has Province survived to the point of now being almost 40 employees with multiple locations and the distinction of being the #1 ranked small company to work for in RI? With 100% of their business coming by referral, one word still remains as the buzz around the Province water cooler: SERVICE!
Province has built its reputation one quality individual at a time. President, Dave Currie does enjoy his corner office, but he earns it through his commitment to creating something special at Province, not only for their mortgage clientele, but for their valued employees as well. People who tend to refer their mortgage professional remember the experience they had during the mortgage process. That quality experience has always been the focus of the Province Team, but the same also applies to the experience of being a part of this team on a daily basis. They work hard, and they play hard.
Province still remains one of hundreds of options for local mortgage originators, however its employees feel that Province is definitely more than just another mortgage company. They are truly humbled by this distinction by the PBN Best Companies Group, and they will continue to rally around their collective effort to personify what it really means to love their work, their company, and their special approach to the mortgage business that is shared and valued throughout our local community.
