Since 1952, the Mortgage Bankers Association of Florida has represented the state’s real estate finance industry. The institutions, the people, and the industry itself have changed radically in the last five decades, yet through it all the MBAF has adapted and found new ways to serve its members.

By joining the MBAF, you gain access to:

  • Successful legislative representation

  • Industry leaders and peers

  • Specialized, high-quality education in mortgage finance, the secondary market and annual convention

  • Professional and personal leadership opportunities.

 

By joining the MBAF and your local chapter, you connect yourself to other professionals and the broad spectrum of the mortgage banking industry in Florida. You improve your professional knowledge, make valuable business contacts, and give back to the industry that provides your livelihood.

 

The MBAF connects major national banks with a presence in Florida to small, single-proprietor shops. We welcome conventional mortgage lenders, wholesalers, correspondents, credit unions, savings and loan institutions, and commercial banks. Our associate members include companies providing legal services, title insurance, statistical data, credit scoring, appraisal, and other services to the mortgage banking industry. Allied vendors have a place on the executive boards of both state and chapter associations and play a major role in the life of the organization.

 

The Annual Convention provides networking, industry updates, motivational session, agency roundtables, and many other up-to-date and relevant seminars that help members refresh what they have already learned and keep abreast of changes.

 

Above all, the MBAF guarantees that your company operates on a level playing field in Florida. The association negotiates with state legislators, the Comptroller’s office, the state Insurance Commissioner, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and other organizations such as the home builders, the title industry, and the mortgage brokers to make sure that the business environment is as fair and hassle-free as possible. The MBAF has saved mortgage lenders millions of dollars by working to preserve our priority of liens, fight frivolous TILA suits, worked hard within the mid-2000’s to resolve difficult issues to get us back on track. No one company can fight these battles alone, and the MBAF provides you with a strong, highly respected organization dedicated to protecting the industry’s interests.

 

Join the Mortgage Bankers Association of Florida, and your membership dues will be repaid many times over.
