TULSA — Gateway Mortgage Group LLC, a Tulsa owned and operated business, is simply not your average mortgage broker. No, it is America’s 325th fastest growing private company, according to Inc. Magazine.

Each year Inc. Magazine produces an annual Inc. 500 list. This list ranks the top 500 fastest growing private companies in the United States. According to the magazine, Gateway Mortgage made the list because, “It keeps its back office expenses low so it can pay higher commissions to its brokers, allowing it to hire at a fast clip and hold on to people.” The company sells and underwrites home mortgages in 24 states, and earned a spot on the Inc. 500 list because of its 2005 $13.8 million revenue and a three-year growth rate of 414 percent.

A branch of Gateway Mortgage Group is located at 803 E. Main, Ada, and according to Michael McElroy, branch manager, “Gateway Mortgage employees go the extra mile as far as customer service.” To McElroy, this reason alone explains the Inc. 500 honor Gateway received. “We can offer the best rates on the market,” McElroy said.
