Envoy Mortgage’s Michael Nasserfar Awarded Mortgage Industry Professional of The Year Receives 2016 Texas Association of Builders Star Award

Austin, TX – August 8, 2016 — Envoy Mortgage, a full-service mortgage banking firm operating retail branch locations across the U.S., announces that Michael Nasserfar, branch manager of its Austin, TX branch has been awarded the Mortgage Industry Professional of the Year award by the Texas Association of Builders, as part of its 2016 Star Awards. The awards offer tribute to excellence in home building industry projects throughout the Southwest, recognizing the outstanding work of builders, remodelers, architects, designers, sales professionals, marketing professionals, construction professionals and industry leaders in Texas and the Southwest.

Nasserfar was nominated by Centerra Homes (Austin), for which he is a business partner as a preferred lender. Centerra received a Grand Award in the Volume Builder of the Year (100 – 299 Home Volume) category. Additionally, the company won awards for Sales Professional of the Year, Best Radio Ad and Best Special Promotion. Builders nominate different individuals who help support their businesses and the homebuyers with whom they work.

I have been in the mortgage business since 2001 and am honored to receive this prestigious award,” Nasserfar said. “The award is really geared toward the builder industry. Yet, it’s not only about building superior homes that stand out for their quality design and construction, but in the case of the lenders, it’s about serving the builder’s clients. To me, it means helping the builder and making sure that they are partnering with someone who is servicing their clients and promoting homeownership.

Over 500 entries were submitted for the 2016 Texas Association of Builders Star Awards. A distinguished panel of industry experts visiting from across the nation spent two days judging the outstanding entries, of which only one was selected in each category for the awards.

Winners from around the state were announced on Thursday, August 4 at the 2016 Star Awards Cocktail Reception and Presentation which was held in conjunction with the Sunbelt Builders Show™ at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas. For more information, visit
