REMN Wholesale is known for hosting some of the most exciting, entertaining and educational networking events in the housing industry. This year has proven no different for REMN, and the lender is pleased to announce it will be providing free, on-site workshops coinciding with each of National Mortgage Professional’s upcoming Holiday Networking Parties. In addition to the fantastic food and beverage options REMN events are synonymous with, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in complimentary Certified Military Home Specialist or Renovation Lending workshops, two areas REMN is forecasting increased demand for in 2017.

The NMP Holiday Networking Parties will be held in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. on Thursday, Dec. 8 and in Uniondale, N.Y. on Thursday, Dec. 15. The workshops will begin promptly at 3:30 p.m. and will end by 5:00 p.m., just in time for attendees to make their way to the NMP Holiday Networking Party being held in the same facility at each location.

The Fort Lauderdale event will feature a Certified Military Home Specialist workshop taught by Beverly Frase of Boots Across America. Frase is a recognized expert in training housing professionals on how to work best with military personnel and their families. During the workshop, Frase will educate attendees on the best ways to communicate with VA loan applicants and help them hone the skills needed so they can become a trusted source for the retired and active military personnel in their area. Completing this workshop also qualifies attendees to later take an exam to become a Certified Military Home Specialist.

The Uniondale will feature a workshop focused exclusively on renovation lending products. Led by Damon Richardson, REMN’s renovation lending specialist, the workshop will educate attendees on how reno loan products can become powerful referral generators and strengthen the relationship between brokers and their local real estate agent. The workshop will also cover procedural information regarding the FHA 203(k) program, the Fannie Mae HomeStyle program and the enhancements added to the HomeStyle product by HomeReady.

“I often hear from brokers and originators that they already know how to market VA loans or that reno products aren’t applicable in their market. In almost every instance, these people are wrong,” said Carl Markman, director of national sales for REMN Wholesale. “With the pending decline in refi applications, brokers and originators are going to need to be ready to market to, and work with, borrowers who have other needs. There will be a heavy demand for both VA and reno products in 2017, and the most successful brokers in our industry will be the ones that know how to use them.”
