8:30am: Registration; Class Hours: 9:00am - 5:00pm?(Emperors Ballroom 1) - Certified Veterans Loan Specialist (CVLS) Class sponsored by Caliber Home Loans (Cost is $149 for Members; $279 for Non-members)

Is your focus on VA loans? Would you like to separate yourself from the competition?Don't miss this opportunity to become approved for NAMB's newest certification, the Certified Veterans Loan Specialist (CVLS).

VA loans are an amazing benefit that veterans have earned, and it's our responsibility as loan originators to help them take advantage of it.? But to maximize that benefit, a veteran needs their loan officer to know all the nuances.

Lender guidelines often cover the top level information and you can do a VA deal from them. However, those guidelines miss the how for many of the subtle details of VA loans, and often include limitations that can be worked around if you know how.? With this extra information, you'll be able to get deals done that nobody else can, help more veterans in the process, and stand out to referral partners.

In case you're wondering, it doesn't matter if you're in a military town. In a non-military town, it's likely you'll be the only VA expert, which will make you stand out even more.

The certification training will cover all the basics and will also dig into super advanced topics like:
  • proving eligibility for everyone including reservists and surviving spouses
  • tips for getting DU & LP approvals, and why manual underwriting isn't something to be feared
  • the truth about VA appraisals and especially "Tidewater"
  • ways to find double the number of VA approved condos
  • new rules around refinances and being ready for when that market returns
  • weird stuff like assumptions, EEM, Rehab, non-owner occupant co-borrowers, etc.
In addition, we'll emphasize the detailed knowledge & stories that you can use to show your value to real estate agents and help grow your business with VA as your niche.

Immediately following the class, a test will be given and, upon passing, you will be presented with your certification and all the marketing materials that you need to promote yourself!

Our industry is undoubtedly in a state of rapid evolutionary change, and because of this, our collective focus and Business Planning should fixate on how to better deploy and adopt new and relevant technologies, balanced by the need to create and maintain a ?Human Connection? with our borrowers and referral partners.

The Business Planning process involves the setting of short and long-term organizational goals as well as the development and implementation of strategies and action items to achieve those goals.? Practically speaking, business planning is about achieving a competitive advantage and sustainable edge over your competition.? My intention by developing and providing you with the tools, resources, and products is to position you and your business to achieve that competitive edge and grow your business.

  • How today?s non-prime/non-agency market is completely different than the sub-prime of old
