The 2019 Ultimate Mortgage Expo was a three-day event that took place from Monday, July 8 to Wednesday, July 10 at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans and drew nearly 500 attendees. The show was packed with educational sessions from some of the biggest names in the mortgage industry.
Day one kicked off with a complete Build-A-Broker training program featuring Mortgage Educators and Compliances' Ladonna Lockhart-Ernst and Tina Minet Anderson. Together, they focused on all of the details necessary to build a successful brokerage from the ground up.
The first day also included an opening keynote session by Kelli Brookman of Genworth Mortgage. The session took place on the Quicken Loans main stage and gave attendees the tools they needed to create more business. The day of work-shop oriented programs ended with a cocktail reception on the roof of the beautiful Hotel Monteleone.
The event kicked into high gear on day two and was led by the Quicken Loans Idea Lab and a host of educational sessions. In the Idea Lab, attendees were able to learn how to further their marketing efforts, ultimately leading to more business.
Meanwhile, the Quicken Loans main stage featured sessions by industry-leading professionals like UWM's Justin Glass, RCN Capital's Stephen Ballard, Visio Lending's Freddy Colon, Quicken Loan's Tracey Cox and many more.
