The Houston Mortgage Bankers Association held a Distinguished Producers Panel Discussion recently at Stewart Title on Post Oak Blvd. HMBA invited four highly-regarded top producers in the lending industry to share their experience and advice at the breakfast event with more than 100 mortgage bankers and their guests.
HMBA president Greg Burkett introduced Joe Thompson, president-elect of HMBA, who moderated the discussion with panelists Debbie Cash, VP and Branch manager at Starkey Mortgage; Chad Helmcamp, Senior Loan Officer at Legacy Mutual Mortgage; Chris Kelso, Branch Manager/Loan Officer at Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation; and Paul Vincent, Mortgage Banker at Sente Mortgage.
Panelists offered insights on building and maintaining repeat and referral business; adjusting to changing customer demographics, particularly millennials; innovative loan and office procedures; effective community outreach activities; personal "down-time;" and the future of the mortgage industry.
"We at HMBA are reaching out to our fellow mortgage bankers, realtors, and the public to provide informative programs. This was a great panel, and the information presented was extremely helpful for everyone who attended," said Burkett. “We plan to have more such events in the near future.”
