The Great Northwest Mortgage Expo kicked off on June 14, 2018 at the Embassy Suites Washington Square in Portland, Oregon. Folks from all over the great Northwest area came out for an event filled with educational sessions and over 25 exhibitors from some of the top mortgage companies across the U.S.
After an early-bird session on why companies need Account Executives from Jon Laolagi, VP of Sales for The Money Source, National Mortgage Chair Don Frommeyer officially kicked off the event with some opening remarks.
DFBS Program Manager Kirsten Anderson gave attendees the Oregon State Update to provide clarity and share licensing and regulatory updates. The exhibit hall was then opened for attendees to network with some of the top mortgage companies such as United Wholesale Mortgage, Freedom Mortgage, The Money Source, Franklin American, Carrington Mortgage Wholesale and many more.
One of the newest educational sessions from this show included a look at The
Future of Mortgage and the possibility of Predictive Analytics and Artificial Intelligence. This one of a kind session was led by Chris Drayer, CEO of Revaluate.
In addition to all of the networking and educational programs offered at The Great Northwest Mortgage Expo, a complete 10-Hour NMLS course was available to attendees who pre-registered for the class by adding the option on the event registration page.
The course was instructed by MEC's Marty Lough and also covered both Oregon and Washington electives at no extra cost to attendees of the show.
