What is National Mortgage Brokers Day?

National Mortgage Brokers Day (NMBD) is the annual celebration of independent mortgage brokers across the country, created by the Association of Independent Mortgage Experts (AIME). Celebrated each year on July 18th, NMBD celebrates and spreads awareness of mortgage brokers as the best option for homebuyers nationwide.

This year for NMBD, AIME is inviting a select group of top brass brokers to Washington, D.C. to participate in AIME Advocacy’s efforts. You’ve been chosen. Join AIME Advocacy for three days of exclusive networking, training, and celebration, and make the broker voice heard on Capitol Hill.
