About Us

Based in San Diego, California, The Mortgage Collaborative was founded in 2013 to empower mortgage lenders across the country with better financial execution, reduced costs, enhanced expertise and improved compliance, as well as helping our members access the dynamic and changing consumer base in America.

​The Collaborative is managed by our founding members, John Robbins, CMB; David Kittle, CMB; Gary Acosta, CEO of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP); and Jim Park, former chair of the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA). Robbins and Kittle are former chairmen of the Mortgage Bankers Association of America.


We are singularly focused on creating an environment of collaboration and innovation for small to mid-size mortgage lenders across the country to better themselves and the communities they serve, increase profitability, and cater to the dynamic and changing consumer base in America.
