Annual Awards of Excellence

Congratulations

to all of the 2020 Awards of Excellence Winners.
This year, NMBA celebrated 151 loan originators with over $7.1 billion of total volume in 2020.

The Awards of Excellence event takes place in the first quarter of each year and allows NMBA to recognize members who have demonstrated excellent performance during the prior year while also participating in NMBA events throughout the year.

Award Nominations are generally accepted immediately following the close of each year in order to ensure that all performance information is available for evaluation.

Stay tuned for the next Annual Awards Ceremony for 2021!
