Why do business with a CMLA member?

Financing your home is likely to be the most significant personal transaction you will ever make. It is definitely not the time to take chances on businesses or individuals of unknown reputation or standards.

Since 1956, CMLA has represented mortgage lending companies that work to maintain the highest levels of professionalism within the Colorado mortgage industry. Our corporate membership means that every employee of a member firm is considered a CMLA member. From front line mortgage originators to owners and presidents of companies, CMLA represents more than 5,000 people who work in the Colorado mortgage lending industry.

It is our mission to be an industry association, not just a trade association. We do not represent one segment of the industry, but a cross section of all types of lenders and industry affiliates. Our membership includes mortgage bankers, mortgage brokers, commercial banks, credit unions, and a myriad of industry service providers.

CMLA membership is voluntary, no company is required to join our association. We believe that the willingness of our members to seek out educational opportunities in order to better train their employees, submission to our Code of Ethics, and their commitment to cooperate with the association in resolving questions or complaints from consumers, demonstrates their desire to do business professionally and ethically.

As a consumer, it is important to recognize that CMLA is not a referral source for mortgage companies. It is not our mission to act as a conduit of business for any individual lender. While we will not generally recommend one company over another, we do strongly suggest that all Colorado consumers include CMLA members in their comparative shopping. We believe this will lead consumers to the right mortgage loan at a fair price, combined with the best possible service.  

We sincerely believe that you will receive a better mix of price, quality and speed by doing business with a CMLA member company.
