How I Got Business from Builders: My Story

Karen Deis

Written By: Karen Deis, Publisher

When I was in the mortgage biz, at first, I considered myself to be all things to all people. 

VA loans, I can do them. FHA loans, no sweat. Fannie and Freddie, piece of cake. I knew all the UW rules.

Why You Should Care About Compliance Training

Compliance is like a web that sits over and through all aspects of your company. Each position is touched by it, but not all positions need to understand it the same way. Regulators are not asking lenders to check a box on a checklist. Instead, they are asking lenders to provide an environment where the culture of compliance starts at the top and infiltrates through the ecosystem of the company. Read what regulators expect!
