AnnieMac Home Mortgage is once again sponsoring a team to participate in the 2017 Philalympics, which will take place Aug. 23 at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center.

The annual Philalympics is a corporate challenge pitting teams from area companies against each other in a series of fun events such as tricycle races, slingshot games and Philadelphia trivia.

But the real competition starts before the event, when different teams try to raise the most money for the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House. And the true winners of that competition are the families of seriously ill kids receiving care in area medical facilities, who get accommodations and resources for the duration of their children’s treatment.  Last year, participating teams raised $40,000 for the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House.

AnnieMac’s team has set a goal of $5,000, and they’re a little more than halfway there with two days of fundraising left. They’d really like to go into the event as winners of its most important competition. So if you can donate anything to help them reach their goal, even if it’s just $5, they would greatly appreciate it.

Here’s the link to donate. The AnnieMac Team members, the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, and the families members of seriously ill children who benefit from it all thank you in advance.

Joal Tallant said the recent Presidents Club outing at Crystal Springs Resort included some team-building events. They included a miniature golf tournament, a scavenger hunt, a trivia contest, and a “mixology” competition to see who could develop the best cocktail (the results of which are still being debated).

“Despite all of the fun team-building activities, the best team-building came from when they handed out the Presidents Club Award, and the presenter spoke to what made each individual such a valuable contributor to the AnnieMac family,” Joal said.

The outing took place from May 31 to June 2 for 70 recipients of the Presidents Club Award, given to AnnieMac employees from operations and support as a thank you for their exceptional work. Joal said it was a scenic setting in the mountains of North Jersey, amid rolling hills overlooking a beautifully landscaped golf course.

According to Joal, the AnnieMac team members proved to be a sociable group who enjoyed the chance to spend some time together outside the office.

“You see the faces in the halls, you see the names in email, but you don’t always get to see and feel the impact that the individuals have,” he said.

The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals has recognized AnnieMac’s Rudy Benitez of Casa Grande, Arizona, as one of the top Latino mortgage originators in the country. The organization’s annual ranking of the top 250 Latino mortgage originators – based on the number of mortgages closed in the previous calendar year -- put Rudy at number 26 in retail overall, and at number 14 for non-depository lenders.
According to the NAHREP, the mortgage originators on the list are contributing to the association’s mission of sustainable Hispanic homeownership.
The NAHREP report that includes the rankings states: “The success of the Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators is a demonstration of the growing influence Latinos demonstrate in the industry both as a profession as well as in the volume of home buyers driving the housing economy.”


For the fourth consecutive year, AnnieMac Home Mortgage has won Philadelphia Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” award.

AnnieMac was one of the winners in the “large companies” category, for companies that employ from 100 to 499 employees. That category included a variety of companies, including firms that specialize in financial services, technology, legal services, consulting, real estate development, and daycare services.

Philadelphia Business Journal sponsors the awards, along with Quantum Workplace.

According to Philadelphia Business Journal, the contest is based on employee surveys and contains various levels of safeguards to protect the integrity of the process.

Employees were asked to rate their companies according to the following categories:

  • Work environment
  • Personal growth
  • Professional development
  • People
  • Embracing change/new ideas


Christine Beckwith, National VP of Realtor and Sales for AnnieMac Home Mortgage, will be featured in an upcoming issue of Mortgage Professional America for the magazine’s 2017 Elite Women in Mortgage feature. The women considered for the recognition are nominated by their peers. The magazine’s researchers then sift through the nominations and poll readers to narrow them down to finalists.

“I consider this a huge honor and one that I will not squander.” Christine said.  “To know that this award is a nominated one and that my colleagues want to nominate me for something this special means the world to me — more than you realize.” 

Last year’s Elite Women issue of MPA magazine pointed out that  women make up nearly 60 percent of the global financial services workforce, yet only 14 percent are board members, and only 2 percent hold CEO positions.

“All of these women are shaping and changing the face of the mortgage industry, shattering barriers along the way,” the magazine states. “Collectively, their achievements are nothing short of staggering.”

“I have been so fortunate to have the opportunity to be amongst a small percentage of women in the industry who are given the authority to lead a sales force,” Christine said. “It is not lost on me how unique and special it is to have an entire organization trust me with that title and job.”
