The conference's first full day of training, events and networking finished a few hours ago.
It appears that most who are attending are pleased with their decision to attend.
Prior to the event, many REOPro members expressed concern over the expense required to attend as well as the sign up and monthly fee.
Many of us have spent vast sums of money pursuing the 'possibility' of receiving assignments from asset companies AND lenders/loan servicer's. Usually, the end result was/is enriching that company and their management team. So it's not surprising this issue came up with the announcement of the conference.
Those of us that set aside their concerns and spent the money to attend this event should be pleased with their decision to participate.
One fact has been made very apparent to those attending: THIS COMPANY IS FOR REAL. Their team is comprised of some of the most experienced and well-regarded leaders in the our field. They have some truly unique strategies and a business model that is unlike any company in the default industry.
The thinking is way outside of the box that REO companies spend their time in and are based upon sound business concepts that yield results.
Of particular interest to me is the humility, integrity and transparency expressed by Bridge's leadership.
In a society where the pursuit of obtaining wealth at any cost is treated with respect and admiration, it's exciting to have the opportunity to work with a company whose culture is permeated from the top down with a genuine desire to conduct business in such a virtuous manner.
One out-of-the-box idea is actually treating the agents as a valuable resource and providing tools to them that significantly raise the bar on the level of service an agent provides.
Imagine that...a client with unique needs who is willing to invest in their vendors becoming more able to meet those unique needs.
This company is very different from the rest of the default industry and that is a very good thing.
