Mortgage Bankers Take Their Annual Peek into the Future

Last month, the the Mortgage Bankers Association of New York and the Fordham Real Estate Institute co-hosted the 4th annual Strategic Real Estate & Lending Summit.

According to an article in, “Over 150 professionals including appraisers, brokers, lenders, legal firms and other stakeholders got insight into the residential and commercial real estate markets, regulatory and compliance challenges, and emerging trends that are influencing the industry.”

Topics covered included:

  • Alternative Lending
  • Death by Cliché & Building a Successful Business
  • Federal Home Loan Bank lending activities in Housing & Secondary Markets
  • Freddie Mac Origination & Securitization
  • Mid-Year Market Update
  • Tech & AI in Real Estate.

Some of the high points were the real-time, high-tech demonstrations of artificial intelligence, a drone, and a voice-activated robot. The full-day conference also offered seven hours of (catered) continuing education credits to appraisers and Realtors.

It was an eclectic group in attendance. “A broad spectrum of firms and individuals choose membership in the MBAofNY, including mortgage bankers and brokers, commercial and investment banks and other institutional lenders, title companies, attorneys, accountants, appraisers, environmental and construction advisory firms.”
