Bank of America Home Loans names Matt Vernon short sale and REO executive

Feb 05, 2010

Matt Vernon, a 15-year veteran of the financial industry, has been named short sale and real estate-owned (REO) executive for Bank of America Home Loans, moving to the loan servicing division from roles in the bank’s residential mortgage origination business. In his new position, Vernon will develop and implement initiatives to manage and streamline the bank’s efforts to use short sales and other property liquidation tools to prevent foreclosures and oversee the management and marketing of properties in the bank’s real estate owned portfolio. “The distressed economy is creating extraordinary volume on mortgage servicers in short sales and post-foreclosure REO activities,” Vernon noted. “We know we need to improve processes and efficiencies in these areas. We have begun taking productive steps, and I look forward to working with real estate professionals, customers, investors and our team on ways we can accelerate that progress.” Vernon’s most recent position in new loan production was as enterprise sales executive, leading mortgage origination and cross-selling efforts through Bank of America’s network of more than 6,000 banking centers. Previously, he led the bank’s consumer real estate retail sales channel overseeing 150 offices and more than 2,000 mortgage loan officers. Vernon began his Bank of America career in a banking center in Baltimore and rose through broader leadership positions to become division executive sales manager over 479 banking centers in five Mid-Atlantic states before moving into the consumer real estate financing. “Throughout his 15 years with Bank of America, Matt has demonstrated tremendous acumen in strategic planning, performance, customer focus and other areas that will serve him well in his new position,” said Rebecca Mairone, national servicing executive for Bank of America Home Loans. “This gives him a clear understanding of realty markets and the real estate professionals who play such an important role in short sales and REO marketing.”  For more information, visit
