He is a strong advocate of “networking” with other licensed brokers, and is actively involved with the commercial division of the National Association of Mortgage Brokers.
Currently, Mr. Gramza serves on the commercial mortgage placement and educational liaison committees for the National Association of Mortgage Brokers as well as being a member of the Board of Directors of the Educational Foundation for the National Association of Mortgage Brokers. He is an approved instructor for the National Association of Mortgage Brokers, and the New York State Division of Licensing. Because of his longevity and experience in the commercial mortgage industry, he is called upon as an outside consultant for both lenders as well as clients.
