Texas Trust ranked 16th overall in the yearly compilation, which was based on 2011 full-year mortgage lending figures. Only one other credit union finished in the top 25, but ranked lower than Texas Trust.

"Five years ago, we set a pretty aggressive goal for Texas Trust, to become the largest credit union mortgage lender in our market," said Richard B. Whitman, vice president for mortgage and business lending for Texas Trust Credit Union. "We are proud to have achieved this goal, and we will continue to emphasize this part of our operation. Our focus on residential mortgages is beneficial both to our members and to the communities we serve."
