RPM Mortgage’s Sonoma Branch Named Best Mortgage Brokerage Two Years Running


Sonoma, Calif. – Aug. 4, 2017 – RPM Mortgage (RPM), the nation’s 17th largest retail mortgage lender, is proud to announce that its Sonoma Branch, led by Branch Manager Gary Umholtz, was voted the Sonoma Index-Tribune’s People’s Choice Award for Best Mortgage Brokerage for the second year in a row. This was only the second year the People Choice Awards included a mortgage category, and RPM is honored to be recognized yet again.

Each year, Sonoma Index-Tribune readers cast their votes online in an array of categories, from food and drink to businesses and professionals in the Sonoma Valley. Recipients of these awards will be recognized at the Sonoma Valley People’s Choice Award gala this September.

“It is an honor to have RPM recognized as the Best Mortgage Brokerage in the Sonoma Valley,” said RPM’s CEO Rob Hirt. “Gary exemplifies our company’s ‘Can Do, Will Do’ culture and has left a lasting impression in the community as their dedicated and go-to lender.”

When Umholtz is not helping his neighbors achieve their home financing goals, he is active in the local Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce and the Mentoring Alliance. The Sonoma branch also sponsors a community softball team and donated to last year’s Lake County fire victims.

“I love serving and being a part of this special community in the Valley,” said Umholtz. “I am grateful that our community awarded our branch this recognition. I look forward to meeting the individual financing needs of our community and continuing to make our neighbors’ homeownership goals a reality.”
