“In 2006 I was introduced to the mortgage industry and little did I know I’d find my passion, confidence, business partner, best friends, and my life would never be the same again”
One hundred wholesale mortgage professionals were celebrated for their achievements and seven individuals were inducted into the inaugural class Hall of AIME. The award categories included Sparking Change, given to the preeminent wholesale brokers serving military, minority, and female consumers. The Impact award was granted to members providing substantial improvements in education, leadership, culture, industry, and consumer protection, and the Visionary award highlighted those that have trailblazed innovative new methods of lead generation and unique resources enlivening the wholesale mortgage sector.
