If you read our blog, you know we talk a lot about the challenges mortgage lenders are facing in the current market. These challenges really are extraordinary. Amid rising interest rates and rebounding home prices, lenders are witnessing a surge in purchase loans that hasn’t been seen for years, while the refinance market is drying up fast.
To help mortgage originators manage this shift, in August, Velocify hosted a webinar with Barry Habib, one of the mortgage industry’s leading experts, to provide some insight on how to increase sales in this new environment. The event was a huge success—so much so that we knew we had to do more.
On October 23rd at 9:00 am PDT, Velocify will host the industry’s first Virtual Mortgage Sales Summit, with a TON of new ideas and strategies to help originators sell—not just in the current market, but in any market. This time, we went all out. This is a day-long event with multiple sessions, panels and live Q&As, all designed to ensure that originators of any type and size can get all the information they need.
Barry is back, of course, brimming with good advice. But joining him will be Garth Graham, a STRATMOR Group consultant, veteran mortgage banking executive, and prominent expert in lead generation and management for consumer direct and retail mortgage origination channels. Rounding out the panel of experts is Dale Vermillion, who has trained more than 250,000 mortgage professionals and consulted more than 140 of the largest and most successful mortgage companies.
This event is very unique—there’s never been anything like it. In fact, here’s what Dale Vermillion said when I asked for ideas on describing it:
“There are enormous opportunities in today’s market,” Dale explains. Yet frankly, lenders are struggling in transition from refinance to purchase — struggling to retrain loan officers who previously spent all their time on loan refinancings, and struggling to build one-on-one relationships with the real estate professionals who are going to drive their purchase business through referrals, and struggling to figure out the right strategies and sales positioning to succeed in this market. If you sell mortgages, you need tools, differentiating ideas and best practices, and you need them now. We’ve got them, and thanks to Velocify, we are bringing them to you.”
