ABA Conference: Lenders Gain Insight into the Future of Mortgage Lending

Conference set for March 29-31 in Orlando

​WASHINGTON — Real estate lenders will explore ways to broaden their competitive edge and enhance their lending potential at the American Bankers Association’s Real Estate Lending Conference in Orlando, March 29-31.
 
This year’s conference, titled “20/20 Vision: Building for the Future,” will offer lenders foresight into the evolving mortgage industry and provide a backdrop for critical conversations around lending culture.
 
The three-day event will cover a diverse range of lending topics, including the convergence of technology in the real estate industry, the business of mortgage lending, customer engagement and the competitive trends driving commercial real estate finance.
 
Real estate icon Rob Chrisman, capital markets consultant at Chrisman, Inc., will address the challenges facing the industry and offer insight into upcoming mortgage trends in a session titled “The Chrisman Report: Live.” In addition, Lawrence Yun, chief economist and senior vice president of research at the National Association of Realtors, will present an economic outlook for 2017.
 
Attendees will also hear from Rich Karlgaard, publisher, editor-at-large and global futurist at Forbes and representatives from the FDIC, OCC and Federal Reserve.
 
Conference sessions will be broken up into two tracks — residential and commercial — and focus on the major drivers of growth and production, customer engagement and lending potential. Featured sessions include:
  • Using Technology to Overcome Real World Challenges;
  • Enhance Mortgage Production and Reduce Post-Closing Stress;
  • CRE Trends and the Competitive Landscape;
  • The State of the CRE Industry;
  • Update on HMDA and Impact on Residential Mortgage;
