NAMB—The National Association of Mortgage Professionals has announced the results of its monthly member survey

NAMB—The Association of Mortgage Professionals has announced that Troy, Mich.-based lender United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM) has become NAMB’s first Double Diamond Industry Partner under the association’s recently re-launched Industry Partnership Program.
 
“United Wholesale Mortgage is a big supporter and advocate of independent mortgage brokers and NAMB,” said Fred Kreger, president of NAMB. “We value their partnership, and this Double Diamond Industry Partnership, NAMB’s highest level of sponsorship, will help the association deliver more resources and platforms to our mortgage broker members so they can most effectively grow market share.”
 
UWM, the nation’s top lender for the past two years, also committed $500,000 to NAMB in 2016 to help the association launch its new KickStart program and become a founding sponsor of the program. NAMB KickStart is an initiative aimed at helping entrepreneurial-minded loan originators defray some of the costs of opening their own independent mortgage broker shops by providing approved applicants grants in amounts up to $10,000.
 
“Our partnership with NAMB and KickStart, along with all of our efforts to streamline the loan process, have been designed to accelerate the success of mortgage brokers nationwide and educate borrowers on why brokers are the best option,” said Mat Ishbia, president and CEO of UWM. “It’s an honor to have this prestigious partnership with NAMB.”
