Denver, CO – Local Mortgage Loan Originator, Giuseppe Battaglioli with Hallmark Home Mortgage in Denver has been awarded the prestigious Top 1% of Mortgage Originators Award for 2014. Given by Mortgage Executive Magazine, the yearly accolade is awarded to the top Mortgage Originators in the United States who have hit or exceeded $30 million in volume. Mortgage Executive Magazine receives about 1,000 award nominations each year, but only 700 Loan Originators across the nation qualify for a spot on the list. In 2014, only 27 Loan Originators received the award in the state of Colorado, including Battaglioli.


Battaglioli has been in the mortgage industry for the past 13 years working side by side with his mentor, Dave Gallegos, Sr. Vice President of Hallmark Home Mortgage. “It’s a privilege to work every day with someone as dedicated to his craft as Giuseppe. The quality of the work he does on every loan is how he is able to grow his business year after year” said Gallegos. He further stated “He came to work for me in 2002, with no experience and I couldn’t be more proud to call him my friend, my colleague and my confidant. Congratulations on this very prestigious award!”


Born in Italy, Battaglioli moved to Los Angeles, California with his family when he was in 4th grade. Although medical school was on the horizon after he graduated from University of California-San Diego with a major in biology and a minor in economics, Battaglioli was looking for a way to quickly propel his career upon moving to Denver. After sitting down for an interview with Gallegos in 2002, a new path was forged for Battaglioli.


For more than a decade, Battaglioli has worked to build a solid client base, which includes repeat referrals from Realtors and past clients. With the help from the dedicated and experienced team at Hallmark Home Mortgage that handles a lot of the finite details, Battaglioli is able to spend more time with his clients and Realtor partners, allowing him to provide outstanding service as well as provide him with business growth opportunities. Battaglioli credits his staff for their support and professionalism including his Pipeline Manager, Ashley Hubbell. He also credits Hallmark Home Mortgage for the tools and environment they provide for Loan Originators to be successful in their careers, and the company’s fine tuned processing and closing department which effectively closes transactions.


“Helping others reach their dream of homeownership is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job” says Battaglioli. He does his best to keep his client’s needs at the forefront of each closing, and operates by the Hallmark Home Mortgage motto with every client – closing loans on time, under budget and with no surprises.


Battaglioli attributes his major success to hard work, dedication, and the support of his staff. More times than not, he is the last one to leave the office, ensuring that he has done all that he can for his clients before the day is done. This drive and determination is part of the reason why Battaglioli’s clients receive the best customer service possible and why Battaglioli is a recipient of the Top 1% award this year


Battaglioli balances his hard work and long hours with the immense joys of family life. He and his wife, Maureen have 3 children together, twins who are turning 5 and an 8 month old son. In his free time, Battaglioli enjoys spending his time with his family doing outdoor activities including camping and skiing. He also enjoys woodworking where making pieces of furniture for his family are special holiday projects.
