CBC Mortgage Agency On The Road

CBC Mortgage Agency went coast to coast this month meeting with new lenders, realtors, and homebuyers!

The first stop was Sacramento, CA, for our homebuyer event in conjunction with the UHOUSI project. With over 60+ interested homebuyers in attendance, there were several speakers who touched on the different aspects of making the leap to homeownership. CBCMA’s Tai Christensen spoke about how using down payment assistance makes the American Dream of homeownership possible.

Next up, the team headed to Las Vegas for the IBS (International Home Builders Show). Corporate Account Executives’ Dominique and Emenyo met with home builders from all over the country and worked with them on how to offer Chenoa Fund to their buyers. We saw heavy attendance from Ohio, Texas, Georgia, Florida, and many more states from the south.

Our final stop for the month was the Big Apple for Inman Connect. A conference built for realtors, this show was amazing! With friends like Finance of America, Direct Link, and many others, it was great to meet with realtors from all over the country and educate them on the program. We connected with Presidents from each state from the National Association of Realtors and are looking forward to working with them to provide training on how to better equip their realtors with down payment assistance options.

If you’re a realtor @inmanconnect is the place to be! We just got back from the big Apple feeling more invigorated than ever! We learned from industry leaders and made lots of new connections all over the country to help make down payment assistance more readily available. Big things coming soon!
