MBA Education

Real estate finance is always about change. The change can be legislative, regulatory or economic. MBA helps us anticipate change before it occurs.

– E.J. Burke, 2014 MBA Chairman, Co-President, KeyBank Mortgage

We get an opportunity to actually meet with legislators, decision makers and regulators.Those are the folks who are formulating what the future of our industry is going to look like. It is fantastic to have a voice in that process.

– Chris George, President, CMG Financial

I love being part of MBA because it's given me the chance to meet and work with folks who have the same passion for this industry as I do. MBA provides the framework for all of us to work together toward common goals. And with such strength in numbers, we can move our industry forward.

– Debra W. Still, CMB, 2013 MBA Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Pulte Mortgage LLC

Through active member engagement, you can lend your expertise to MBA's grassroots and national policy and legislative agendas to truly be the voice of the industry, as the future of real estate finance in America is determined.
