One week from Monday, thousands of the leading minds of the housing, finance, and mortgage sectors will converge in Dallas for the 16th annual Five Star Conference and Expo.
The Five Star Conference is the industry’s largest event, providing professionals a space to learn, network, discuss ideas, and collectively work to grow the industry.
“On behalf of the entire team at Five Star, we are honored to welcome the mortgage industry once again to Dallas,” said Five Star Global President and CEO Ed Delgado. “The professionals participating at the Five Star Conference arrive with one goal in mind, to advance and improve the industry. We look forward to the critical discussions and connections that Five Star makes possible, and to continuing our commitment to promoting and supporting American homeownership across these United States.”
One of the key features of the Five Star Conference is the lineup of educational labs featuring insights from subject-matter experts representing servicers, government agencies, and service providers. This year’s lab lineup includes sessions dedicated to Property Management, Servicing and Compliance, REO, Diversity & Inclusion, Fintech, and Foreclosure.
These labs will include subject-matter experts from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Mr. Cooper, Flagstar Bank, Home Depot, Bayview Loan Servicing, Auction.com, and more. Representatives from the Department of Housing and Development and the CFPB will also be onsite during the event.
“The Five Star Conference has increasingly become a must-go for the mortgage servicing industry,” said Courtney Thompson, SVP, Director of Default Servicing Operations at Flagstar Bank. “There is excellent, relevant content for both the starting and mid-level professional, diverse participants representing a meaningful cross-section of the industry, and of course, excellent events and event production that really enhance the value of entry for the Five Star.”
The conference will also once again play host to the Legal League 100’s Fall Servicer Summit. The Summit is an all-day event that brings together the financial services law firms with servicers and government representatives to discuss critical litigations, policy changes, new procedures, and emerging issues that could impact the industry.
Additionally, the Conference will host the Single-Family Rental and Investment Roundtable, led by RCN Capital’s CEO Jeff Tesch. Qualified residential agents and brokers are also able to attend the FORCE Rally, where they will gain insight on best practices in sales and listing strategies, REO trends, and engage with asset managers, investors, and servicers.
Also included in the Conference is the Women in Housing Leadership Awards Banquet. Five Star is honored to be sharing the stage with mPower of the Mortgage Bankers Association to honor and recognize the industry's brightest female leaders.
Five Star will award the Keystone awards for Rising Business Leader; Cultural Leader; Community Leader; Diversity and Inclusion; and the Laurie A. Maggiano Legacy Award.
Not only does the Five Star Conference host the best available networking and education opportunities, it also provides some of the best concerts.
Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and rock icons Joan Jett and The Blackhearts will take the stage to rock the Keys for Life Reception and Concert. Keys for Life is also a celebration of our armed forces, as Five Star will award mortgage-free homes to service men and women who fought to protect our nation.
