    'The Revitalization of Detroit: A Conversation with J.P. Morgan's Jason Tinsley'

    in Business

    Pervasive blight, crime, neglected school systems, and bankruptcy...terms that have all been used to describe the condition of Detroit, MI. Once the Mecca of the American automotive industry, where French architecture was as common as the Coney Island restaurants speckled across the city, where the sound of 'Motown' left its mark on history, and where the prosperous middle class owned homes with yards and nice cars...Detroit, the history rich city that serves as the poster child for a nation in turmoil. However, the city is seeing a revitalization much like the progressive metropolitan cities many people have flocked to. Where there once was dilapidated and long forgotten factories now stands lofts and condos that rent for thousands of dollars per month. Entrepreneurs are flocking to the city and the onset of promising businesses is spreading like wild fire, Foreign investors are buying Detroit homes in bulk, and J.P. Morgan has agreed to invest $100 million dollars over 5 years into the city....is this the reset button Detroit has been longing for? How long will it take to see a complete revitalization of Detroit? Are you willing to invest? Join us as we discuss the revitalization of Detroit with Private Banker, Jason Tinsley of J.P. Morgan...

    A GREAT "COMEBACK" STORY: Wholesale Lending & the Mortgage Broker

    in Finance

    It wasn't that long ago that many were saying that WHOLESALE LENDING and the MORTGAGE BROKER were going to go the way of the dinosaur.  Today's   resurgence of the Wholesale Channel and those that participate in the channel are doing very well.  It is one of the great "come back" stories of our industry.  


    To talk about this, we have as our special guest, GREG MURRAY, CEO of Wholesale One™.  On today's broadcast, we will be discussing the following and much more:  



    How will the revitalization of the wholesale market benefit the industry overall?
    What will be some of the keys in your mind for brokers to succeed in the today’s market?
    Is a more purchase focused market a good thing for brokers? 
    What is the key - or perhaps couple of keys – to succeeding in wholesale as a lender?
    Some brokers have begun operating as non-delegated correspondents.  Is this a good thing?


     I encourage you to tune into this important broadcast and tell others to do so as well.  Encourage you to email me in advance of this broadcast any questions that you would like me to ask our guest.  Our guest, Greg Murray, is very experienced and knowledgeable about the trends related to the Wholesale market and the potential it has.
