OTTAWA – Linda Taglia of 1st Farm Credit Services has been chosen as a Five Star Professional for 2014.

The Five Star Professional award program is the largest and most widely published award program in North America. Mortgage professionals are measured using an objective, in-depth research methodology with significant focus on customer feedback and overall satisfaction.

Taglia, a vice president focused on rural home loans at 1st Farm Credit Services, joined the association in 2007. She has more than 20 years of experience in the real estate industry.

During her career, Taglia has closed more than $575 million in mortgage loans, and remained a top producing loan officer for 18 years.

Less than 2 percent of Chicago-land area mortgage professionals are given this honor by the Five Star Professional organization.
