Advancing eMortgages: Fannie says Going ‘paperless’ could save $1 billion annually

June 5th, 2014 No comments

Why are we still using Paper?


For many years we have extolled the virtues of a complete electronic real estate and mortgage transaction. Many folks have taken the arrows serving as catalyst to move a deeply entrenched, paper-intensive industry forward. Having met Fannie Mae back in 2002 (I saved the souvenir access badge) a handful of experts and true pioneers continue to chip away the barriers. As the overall market continues to gain strength and with the support and recent CFPB announcement-we may be closer that you think (I really hope so) – the time is ripe!

Is This Anyway to Run a Company – Mom Says So!

May 11th, 2014 No comments

Hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day..sadly, my Mom left us way to soon but left her 6 children, grandchildren and great children a legacy of wisdom and understanding that serves us well –  today and for generations to come.

As the eldest, I was the ‘experiment’. As I look back I realize that I had the privilege of spending valuable ‘solo’ time alone as Mom, no doubt, was trying to figure out how to best in the World and along the way became my life’s CEO, teacher, coach, cheerleader, nurse, shrink, cook..well you get the picture. She was everything that she could be and that was more than enough- I’m so thankful.

Through the years, many have not had a chance to meet Mom but I always stated ‘as you know me you know my Mom’. Truth is that if I can be half of what my Mother was I would be the proudest person on the planet-Thanks Mom and to all you Mom’s that truly make a difference for generations to come.

I came across a post that captures the essence of my Mom’s wisdom …thought you might enjoy:

Long Awaited – FHA Approves e-Signatures

January 30th, 2014 No comments

It was announced today that the FHA will now accept e-Signatures. Industry pundits have said that the entire electronic real estate and mortgage transaction has been stalled to almost to a complete halt without this FHA buy-in. (E-Sign Act, June 2000)

Settleware has been advocating such advances and pioneering the effort since the late 90′s (and we have the arrows in the back to prove it)..this announcement will be well received by all Industry stakeholders, especially the consumer who has been needlessly inconvenienced, and will now open the path to e-Mortgage adoption.




Happy Leftovers – Happy Technology

December 2nd, 2013 No comments

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. I’m still enjoying my favorite  time of the year – ‘leftover weekend’. Nestled between Black Friday and Cyber Monday it’s the perfect time of the year to count our blessings while chomping away on that turkey sandwich, watching great football like Auburn upset over Alabama or catching the ’60 Minutes’ expose on Amazon and visionary founder Jeff Bezos. (Ok, so I can’t help weave in some discussion on technology but a friend told me back in the 90′s that “if you don’t get on the super information highway you will soon be  road kill along side of it”- probably the best pivot I ever made! )

If you still don’t believe that technology will have a major impact on both your personal and business life take a look at what some very smart people are already working on:

Happy Leftovers!
