    in Business

    Heidi Feemster and Tamara Leigh TREND ON Don Hallmark founder of Impedium Advisors. As Don says, "Many companies today are surviving, but not thriving. What if you could reduce expenses and recover overcharges? What if you qualified for state and federal government programs? That's precisely where Impedium Advisors come in." Don has worked in sales and marketing for more than 20 years, both for Fortune 1000 companies and startups. Prior to his business career, Don served in the U.S. Army, where he was promoted to the rank of Major before leaving the service after the first Gulf war. Don started Impedium Advisors in 2010 to help companies to recover revenue that they are entitled to but have lost because they are not familiar with changing tax laws or are being overcharged on complex vendor contracts. Impedium Advisors has two offices, one in Madison and one in Appleton.
    Don is married to Lynn and resides in Appleton.

    Short Refinances, Everett - Cairn Advisors

    in Finance

    In November, FHA extended the principal reduction loan program for two more years.  The FHA short refinance program was first authorized by Congress in 2008 to assist non-FHA borrowers that are underwater. It has evolved over time and is now being extended through 2016.

    The short refinance is an under-utilized tool for investors who are looking to monetize their performing loans at a higher yield than a sale of the re-performing note.

    Joining the broadcast to discuss short refinances is Craig Everett, principal at Cairn Advisors.

    Craig has over 20 years’ experience in the mortgage industry in a variety of lending environments.  Craig’s previous positions include Vice President of Distressed Originations for Lime Financial/Credit Suisse and Founding Partner of Wealthbridge Mortgage a 50 state originator and special servicer. Craig has spent the last 5 years as principal of Cairn Advisors working in the distressed origination space where he has helped hedge funds, servicers and other clients maximize the return on their assets through unique loss mitigation strategies.
