Gold Star Mortgage Financial Group, Corp Announces Daniel Milstein Named Among Mortgage Professional America's Hot 100 2016

Daniel Milstein, Founder and CEO of Gold Star Mortgage, has been named among Mortgage Professional Magazine's Hot 100 2016, marking his third appearance on this prestigious roster.

​Gold Star Mortgage Financial Group, Corporation is pleased to announce Founder and CEO, Daniel Milstein, has again been named among Mortgage Professional Magazine’s Hot 100 2016. An exclusive roster of banking’s most influential contributors, MPA’s Hot 100 has been in existence for 4 years with Milstein featured consistently. Visionary Entrepreneur, Top Producing Loan Originator and Best-Selling Author, Dan Milstein’s personal achievement, industry-related contributions and inspirational best-sellers have earned him extensive recognition.

Milstein founded Gold Star in 2000, one of the nation’s fastest-growing premier mortgage bankers headquartered in Ann Arbor, MI. Included on National Mortgage Professional Magazine’s 2009 “40 Under 40” list, Crain’s 2009 “Forty Under Forty” and the 2010 dbusiness list of “30 in Their Thirties”, it’s clear Milstein’s entrepreneurial spirit and ambition left their mark early. Additionally, the Scotsman Guide recognized Milstein as the “#1” Loan Officer in the United States in both 2009 and 2010 as compared with more than 550,000 candidates. Continually asked for his formula for success, Milstein responded by publishing his first best-seller, The ABC of Sales: Lessons From a Superstar, and was named a member of the National Academy of Best-Selling Authors in 2012 as a result of record-breaking sales. 17 Cents and a Dream: My Incredible Journey from the USSR to Living the American Dream followed in 2013, a poignant, gripping memoir of Milstein’s daring escape from Ukraine in the wake of the Chernobyl disaster. In 2014 Milstein published Street Smart Selling: How to be a Sales Superstar, immediately earning rave reviews from those determined to emulate Milstein’s meteoric rise.

“I’m honored to have been included in MPA’s Hot 100 again this year,” said Milstein. “It’s an indication I’m reaching my goal of being a positive role model for others  and a contributor to an industry dedicated to providing the American Dream of homeownership.”
