Tools for Home Buying

Why should you use a mortgage broker?

Did you know that two out of three Americans use a mortgage broker to purchase a home? They do this because mortgage brokers offer home buyers with more options and a wider selection of loan products.

Use a certified mortgage broker!

The National Association of Mortgage Brokers (NAMB) is a not-for-profit organization committed to promoting the highest degree of professionalism for its members and providing ethical and professional standards against which mortgage brokers can be measured.

In order to achieve this goal, NAMB has developed a rigorous certification program to recognize brokers who have attained the highest levels of professional knowledge. Developed through extensive research by mortgage industry professionals, a NAMB certification is gained only once the candidate has met certain requirements of experience and knowledge to practice mortgage brokering and has passed a written examination.

When combined with our code of ethics and best business practices, a NAMB certified mortgage broker is your guarantee that you are dealing with a recognized professional in the mortgage origination field.
