MA Broker Only Meeting  
Tuesday, March 9, 2021 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Virtual via Zoom

My name is Anne Antonellis and I am the owner of Duxbury Mortgage Services in Duxbury, MA. I was recently elected to serve on the Board of the Massachusetts Mortgage Bankers Association (MMBA).  

I joined the Board because I felt that licensed mortgage brokers here in Massachusetts needed a vehicle to connect, gain support and have access to education that is pertinent to the broker community Through MMBA, I am hoping to focus on how the MMBA can assist Brokers in doing their business

I invite you or one of your staff members to attend a meeting (using zoom) on Match 9th at 11:00 AM. Here is what I want to discuss: 

  • What do you need assistance with to either be more successful or to comply with business regulations? 
  • What type of assistance is needed to access the DOB and their resources?
  • Would you be interested in participating in a quarterly conference call or virtual meeting with other MA brokers? 

 All together we are stronger and the MMBA is excited support and partake in this endeavor. 

 I hope you will join me on March 9th
