In a statement, said that the partnership will also provide a new member benefit “aimed at preparing loan originators to compete more effectively, both today and in the coming purchase money mortgage market.”

“For as long as I’ve been a part of this industry, loan originators have struggled to find good new business leads and to forge strong partnerships with their partners in real estate sales,” president John Stevens (pictured) said. “We will change that by putting consumers at the center of the transaction and giving loan originators the opportunity to build out strong referral relationships easily. I’m very proud to be partnering with NAMB to bring this to the industry.”
