How was the REOMAC conference?

Real Estate Agent with Oakview Realtors
I'm interested in hearing from anybody who attended REOMAC spring conference 2007, i missed it this year but have been there in the past. My questions: Was there any good education? Was there any chance of meeting asset managers? Was it a worthwhile conference for realtors hoping to expand their REO business?

I went to the REOMAX conference last week for the first time. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect but I was expecting a lot for the time and money invested. And, I actually learned more than I thought I would. I was surprised at how frank the lenders were about the current state of their portfolios and what the future will look like for the next few years--scary! I got to meet quite a few asset managers but I got the feeling that although they were friendly, it's a pretty tight club. I met several agents specializing in REOs who were extremely helpful offering me tips to make contacts and cultivate business. I'm sure it is most productive for agents who already have a substantial REO business but I will probably attend the conference in the fall in Florida.

I went to REOMAC this year and am thinking about going to 5 Star in Dallas in September. What is the difference between the two events and is one better than the other?

Hi Shari.  I have not been to either, but am strongly considering the 5 Star in Dallas.  What is holding me back is that they have not posted their education sessions yet.

A friend of mine attended and these were his comments: "I am a member of REOMAC and I just got back from their conference in Palm Springs. Big wigs from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Country Wide were there and all said they are going to be working on getting more short sales approved!!! It's about time they started thinking this way."

We are located in the Chicago area on the northside.  We have been here approximately twenty years.  The majority of our selling has been the condominiums along the lake front in the Edgewater and Rogers Park areas.  We are very much interested in becoming involved in short sales and/or forclosures.

Please supply us with any information that you can.

Nice advertisement Christine. There are so many of these $99 lists out there, and most of the banks and asset management companies are available for free, while alot of the info is no good. Why pay when you can get most of the info for free!

I'd have to agree with that one Bonita.  I was supposed to go to the Five Star Conference in September but due to an emergency could not make it.  Any more feedback on the conference?

The 5 star was very informative. I don't think they expected so many people so they were somewhat disorganized.

The best part was making the contacts. That was priceless. I met agents form all over the country, we shared our contacts, and got great tips.

I will go again.
