Atlantic Coast Mortgage, a Virginia-based mortgage lender that offers both forward and reverse mortgage products, was named one of the best places to work in the Washington DC area in the Washington Post’s eighth annual Top Workplaces survey. The survey, conducted in collaboration with employee engagement firm Energage, LLC, asked employees in the area about the companies they work for to identify 200 of the top-rated jobs in the area.
2021 award winners include government contractors, real estate firms, professional and business services, law firms, and technology companies. Over 3,500 regional companies were invited to participate and 413 were surveyed, with the top companies selected based on survey responses from more than 65,000 employees on a variety of relevant topics.
Atlantic Coast Mortgage was founded in 2011 and operates out of Fairfax, Virginia and ranks 25th on a list of 76 medium-sized companies with between 150 and 500 local employees in the DC area.
“I love ACM because the company cares about us and shows their appreciation by sending funny gifts and making sure we have a balanced work and private life,” said one employee in the survey, according to the Post.
The post’s spotlight on these organizations is expected to include details on how these companies were affected by global and national events over the past year, particularly those related to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
“Today’s issue of the Washington Post will also feature a special Top Workplaces magazine that features a cover story about how employees and executives at the top 200 workplaces companies have been reshaped by events over the past 15 months and are returning to their offices with new attitudes on flexibility, mental health and equity, profiles of four local executives on how events of the past year have changed their organizations, and a look at how conversations in the workplace have changed following the Race Settlement and movements of the social change in the future will change last year, ”said the Post in its announcement of the award winners.

In terms of its reverse mortgage offerings, Atlantic Coast Mortgage offers conventional Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) loans as well as proprietary “jumbo” options for borrowers with a home value of up to $ 4 million.
