CLARKSTON, Mich., March 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The mortgage industry's newest group, the Association of Independent Mortgage Experts (AIME), is kicking off its series of workshops on April 11, as independent mortgage professionals from around the country will unite in Irvine, California. A full-day event for AIME members only, the workshop will feature speakers and panels that are focused on a variety of industry topics that are vital to the independent sector.
The workshop will include keynote sessions by mortgage industry expert Barry Habib and nationally renowned motivational speaker Eric Thomas. Additionally, a series of speakers and panel discussions will focus on broker-centric topics, featuring Nima Ghamsari, CEO and Founder of Blend, Mat Ishbia, President and CEO of United Wholesale Mortgage, Phil Shoemaker, COO of Caliber Home Loans, Brian Vieaux, SVP of TPO at Flagstar Bank, with discussions moderated by Clayton Collins, CEO of Housing Wire, and Laura Brandao, COO of American Financial Resources Wholesale.
"We're excited to kick off this series of value-adding workshops for AIME members to gain exclusive insight, tips and best practices focused on growing their business," said Anthony Casa, Founder and Chairman of AIME. "AIME has caught on like wildfire in its first four weeks and has seen more than 6,000 members sign up to date."
AIME is operating with a growth-focused strategy, providing tools and resources to propel the wholesale channel beyond 20% share of the mortgage market by 2020.
Part of that strategy is consumer-focused, as AIME plans to implement an aggressive campaign to rebrand mortgage brokers as "mortgage advisors" in the public eye. The campaign will target homebuyers, realtors, builders, financial advisors and real estate attorneys to effectively tell the story of why independent mortgage experts are the best choice for getting a mortgage.
The AIME Mortgage Expert Workshop is being held from 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. PST at Hotel Irvine at 17900 Jamboree Road in Irvine, California. The cost is $50 per member and includes breakfast and lunch.
