Phillip Achille Olson Named a Minnesota Housing Top Producing Loan Officer

Cottage Grove, Minn. – Phillip Achille Olson, Senior Mortgage Planner at CrossCountry Mortgage, LLC, was named a Minnesota Housing Top Producing Loan Officer by Minnesota Housing at the Silver Level for his loan production during 2019.

Homeownership builds equity and is the primary driver for building wealth for American families. Each year of successful homeownership adds nearly $10,000 in household wealth. It also creates stability for families and stronger connections within our communities. 

Minnesota Housing supports and strengthens homeownership by partnering with local loan officers like Olson to provide affordable homebuyer loans. First-time and repeat homebuyers can access programs with fixed interest rates and downpayment loans up to $17,000. More information and eligibility requirements are available at In addition to homebuyer loans, Minnesota Housing also offers home improvement loans and finances single-family and multifamily housing across the state.

The Minnesota Housing Top Producing Loan Officer Program recognizes outstanding loan officers biannually at three levels: Platinum, Gold and Silver. Loan officers meeting the threshold for each level based on regional production are recognized as top producers.

“We applaud these Top Producing Loan Officers for demonstrating a deep understanding of Minnesota Housing homebuyer loan programs and helping Minnesota families realize the dream of homeownership,” said Minnesota Housing Commissioner Jennifer Leimaile Ho.
