Topics for the Five Star Labs include compliance, foreclosure, property management, REO, servicing, and investing.”The talent level—the Bill Glasgow’s of the world, Marion McDougall from Caliber, PennyMac and Steve Bailey, every single panel is loaded,” said Wes Iseley, Senior Managing Director at Carrington Holding Company. “Compared to any other servicing conference, speakers here are of the highest quality. Attendees are going to hear directly from the people that are running these companies and servicing platforms.”Tyler Smith, Wells Fargo VP of REO Asset Management and REO Lab Director, said in the current housing climate, his lab is an important one for agents who are interested in REO.“Even though inventory is down, the focus on this area is as great as ever,” said Smith. “We’re expected to do things better and faster, so the real estate agent that’s going to continue to focus on REO needs to be aware of and truly understand the varying approaches that servicers are taking in this space.”On the evening of Monday, September 18th, Five Star will honor veterans of the U.S. military with the annual Military Heroes Keys for Life event, which will include the presentation of five mortgage free homes to veterans and their families with the support of Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit whose mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families.”The Five Star Conference provides Operation Homefront with a unique platform to connect our mission with the mortgage industry,” said Operation Homefront President and CEO John I. Pray, Jr., Brig Gen, USAF (Ret). “We’re grateful to be part of this important [Keys For Life] program.”In light of Hurricane Harvey, Five Star President and CEO Ed Delgado has also called an emergency meeting to take place at the Five Star. Among invited attendees are senior-level mortgage industry executives and federal officials. The goal of the meeting is to formulate responsive initiatives and an action plan to protect homeowners impacted by the wide-spread devastation of the storm.“The Five Star has always been about bringing together leaders in the mortgage industry to discuss issues that are most impacting American homeowners,” said Delgado. “The calling of policy meetings to discuss the impact of Hurricane Harvey is another extension of the way our industry comes together to protect the American Dream.”The conference will conclude on the afternoon of September 20th with the Women in Housing Leadership Forum where women leaders in the mortgage industry will deliver inspiring keynotes on promoting inclusion throughout the industry. One speaker, Kimberly Neff, Principal in EY’s Financial Services Advisory Practice, will discuss some of the ways women leaders can be more successful in an already thriving field.“Women say ‘I’m sorry’ quite frequently,” said Neff. “We need to stop apologizing and start to think in terms of our strengths, instead of our weaknesses. One of the momentous things about the Women in Housing Forum is it gives women an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and to learn from each other.”To register or to find more information on the 2017 Five Star Conference and Expo, click here.Editor’s note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of DS News and DSNews.com.
