Beyond the Title Company: How will the New CFPB Rule Affect the Way Your Clients Do Business

The CFPB rule will affect the entire real estate market. You should prepare not only yourself and your title company, but also your clients. During the next nine months, you have a unique opportunity to teach your realtor clients, your lender clients and your attorney or law firm clients about how this rule will affect them. Arm them not only with your expertise but also the tools to prepare them for questions and situations to come. This session will address how to effectively train lenders, realtors and attorneys for these coming changes. If you train them now, the transition will be smoother for all parties involved – including the consumer!

Linda Grahovec NTP (VP, Fidelity National Title Group)

Improving the Consumer Experience with Digital Closings

With the CFPB final rule on integrated mortgage disclosures, much of the focus has been on forms, but the real estate industry will begin to see a shift of focus to the closing process and improving the consumer experience. As the Bureau initiates its eClosings pilot program, it's safe to assume that eClosings will become a fixture in the industry. Come to this session to learn how digital closings work and how each party in a transaction, including the consumer, benefits from a digital closing.
