Wendy how did you get in? Did you call? Did you first sent a letter and then got invited? Are the open to the public? Are the held at a special place? Do you announce your coming?

Thank you. Sorry for to many questions, I'm trying to do some marketing research.

Jose,

The best way to attend is as a member. In other words, join the organization!! REALTOR membership is available to licensed and certified appraisers.

I met 2 lenders at my area's Chamber of Commerce meetings. Good place to network.

I'm not sure I would want to deal with the largest MB in town. They probably didn't get to be the biggest because they are just really nice people. :lol:

I say this because I met a few MBs as a result of a Chamber of Commerce meeting, sponsored by a large local mortgage office, about 2 years ago. One loan officer there bragged about how the old appraiser lost his job to the great new appraiser because the old appraiser could not find a way to make the needed value on a duplex (hint hint). You can bet the willing new appraiser hit that value. NO problema. Now Skippy, I mean the new appraiser, does work for most of the loan officers in that office.

I worked for a different loan officer in that office for a few weeks. On one sale assignment, I mentioned a huge gaping trough in the yard (new construction) caused by rain runoff. I made the appraisal subject to repair prior to closing. A drain system needed to be installed to correct the problem. Miss MB didn't like a condition on her appraisal and she dropped me like a hot potato. Allowing a snag in a mortgage broker transaction is like getting between a hungry tiger and fresh kill. <_<

If you stay in the residential mortgage business, you'd better get used to this kind of crap and expect even more of the same to come. It ain't gettin' better.
