Attendees kicked off the holiday season in grand Texas fashion, as more than 2,400 brokers came out to the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Irving, Texas for valuable education seminars, networking with lenders and colleagues, and simply to celebrate a truly successful year for the industry. Best of all, admission was free for mortgage brokers and their loan originators. The day started out with a series of education sessions. CampusMBA offered a presentation on the importance of your client base in creating new business and increasing production, sponsored by Option One Mortgage. National training consultant Ron Vaimberg was on hand to discuss lead generation, referrals and how to improve your purchase-based business. Gary Hoyer of Warehouse One explained the benefits of the broker-to-banker relationship during his session, while Art Ski Swiatkowski of InterBay Funding LLC outlined the benefits of small commercial lending. American Brokers Conduit also presented a seminar on their Choice Series Program. With the education sessions completed, attendees were then invited to the Phoenix Ballroom for the First Annual Holiday Networking Party. Nearly 100 exhibitors displayed the very latest in loan products and programs, and two hospitality suites were hosted by IndyMac Bank and SouthStar Funding LLC. A buffet of delicious food and holiday music added to the holiday atmosphere, and the U.S. Marines were also on hand to collect donations for Toys for Tots. Thanks to the generosity of those in attendance, the Marines collected more than $1,200 and a truckload of toys for children in need. The First Annual Texas Mortgage Broker Holiday Networking Party was a huge success, so much so that the Sheraton Grand Hotel had to direct brokers to alternate parking lots when theirs was filled to capacity. There is no doubt that next years party will be even bigger and better. More information will be available in future issues of The Texas Mortgage Press.
