Stand out from the crowd business unique concept


The American Association of Private Lenders’ (AAPL) Excellence Awards is an annual program designed to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of professionals in the field of private real estate lending.

We created the Excellence Awards to showcase how our members leverage their unique resources to solve problems, advance industry/professional performance, kick-start innovation and improve community conditions. We know many of our members are involved in activities every day that make a substantial, positive impact on our lives and the private lending profession.


AAPL’s Members of the Year Award

One Lender and one Service Provider member will be recognized based on their deep expertise, unique value, a strong commitment to clients, and the fostering of a deeper understanding of excellence in private lending.
