Steve, Vice President of Mortgage Lending at his corporate office in Chicago, recently earned recognition from the National Association of Mortgage Brokers (NAMB), and became one of only a small percentage of mortgage professionals to attain the standing as a nationally recognized Certified Residential Mortgage Specialist (CRMS). This credential is only gained once a candidate has met certain requirements of experience, and knowledge of the mortgage industry, and has passed a rigorous written examination, covering the entire field of mortgage and real estate finance. To maintain the validity of the CRMS certification, a program of continuing professional development is required of the designee every three years. Thus, this prestigious national credential is neither easily achieved nor casually retained.
