The national association that represents the real estate finance industry. The Mortgage Bankers Association, headquartered in Washington is frequently referred to as the MBA.

A mortgage banker is an institution or individual who closes and funds mortgage loans in their own name. This is opposed to a mortgage broker who facilitates a mortgage transaction between a mortgage banker and a borrower for a fee. The MBA represents mortgage bankers. The National Association of Mortgage Brokers (NAMB) represents mortgage brokers.
