When Partners, Mike Naylor and Ashley Mills founded Direct Mortgage Loans (DML) in 2003, they wanted to create a company on the values of accountability, transparency, and teamwork. Their goal was to lead through growth and passion, while motivating successful team members. Today, the DML family stretches across 17 licensed locations and has funded over 13,000 loans for more than $3 billion in volume since 2012. Through teamwork and solution focused attitudes, the DML team has driven extraordinary results for their clients, industry partners and each other. In 2019, DML outpaced the mortgage industry growth rate by 150% and was named a National Mortgage News Top 10 Mortgage Company to Work For, NMP Top Mortgage Employer and a Baltimore Sun Top Workplace.
