OLDSMAR, Fla.--(Nationwide Appraisal & Settlement Network recently had the opportunity to meet and greet new and existing Credit Union clients at the CUNA Government Affairs Conference that took place last week in Washington D.C.)--
“Credit Unions need to have a plan of action for 2013 and avoid waiting until the last moment, as there is a good chance there will be additional regulatory changes in the fall”
“We received an overwhelming welcome from attendees and exhibitors alike. I can see that many Credit Unions have a real need for the appraisal management piece. Working with NASN will help our Credit Union clients to alleviate time and pressure on different departments that may not necessarily have the tools and/or resources to carry it out to the fullest extent of compliance,” says Cari Burris, Director of Operations at Nationwide Appraisal & Settlement Network.
NASN is unique in their appraisal management approach as they recognize the importance of educating clients on compliance points with regards to the Dodd Frank and Interagency guidelines put forth by the CFPB. “With the high number of regulatory changes coming out in 2013 from the CFPB it is imperative that credit unions are aware of what exactly applies to them and how best to approach these new regulations,” says Kevin Johnson, Sales Associate at NASN. “Credit Unions need to have a plan of action for 2013 and avoid waiting until the last moment, as there is a good chance there will be additional regulatory changes in the fall,” continued Johnson.
When we asked Joni Pilgrim, Director of Sales and Marketing, why her company is putting a direct focus on targeting Credit Unions, she stated, “Credit Unions seem to be a perfect fit for our organization. Many of the concerns we hear from the executives involve issues surrounding geographic competency of the Appraiser, appraisal report conflict and resolution procedures, or simply not having the man power to recruit, qualify, retain, order, manage, track, and review the appraisal reports internally and with compliance at the forefront of each appraisal. That is what we do for our clients and so much more. We have laid the groundwork by defining our role within their organizations and offering them solutions that will increase their productivity while saving them time and money by utilizing our services. We’re excited for the opportunity in this sector.”
When asked if the appraisal management company will continue to attend this conference or any other Credit Union opportunities in the future, the resounding ‘YES’ was heard loud and clear. “We want to be where we are needed, and we are needed among the Credit Union community. We serve a purpose for those organizations and working with our team of professionals at Nationwide Appraisal & Settlement Network is a positive experience for their members,” says Burris.
As a national appraisal management company, NASN has been able to assist credit unions from coast to coast with their appraisal needs, maintaining compliance and offering national appraisal services with their footprint of over 10,000 appraisers in all 50 states. Nationwide Appraisal & Settlement Network positions themselves to assist their clients with their lending needs now and as they grow.
If you missed them in Washington, don’t worry. You can also look to speak with them at the ABA Real Estate Lending Conference in New Orleans on April 10th - 12th. Booth #217.
