Bruce Norris is joined this week by David Kittle. David began his mortgage banking career in 1978 with American Fletcher Mortgage Company. As a top producing loan officer, he moved to the management side in ’86. He opened his own company, Associates Mortgage Group, in 1994 and sold it in 2006. David is founding partner and vice-chairman of the Mortgage Collaborative, the nation’s premiere mortgage cooperative. David is past president of the Louisville and Kentucky Mortgage Bankers Association. He is the past chairman of MBA’s political action committee MORPAC and former vice chair of MBA’s residential board of governors. He served on MBA’s board of directors from 2004-2010. David is past chairman of the Mortgage Banker’s Association in Washington, D.C., completing his term in October 2009. David’s principled and straight-forward approach served him well in the industry. He testified 14 times before Congress and lead the industry during the most tumultuous period he has ever had.
Bruce and David discuss when he first got started in mortgage banking, common sense underwriting and whether it could come back, the job of the Mortgage Collaborative and what they do for their clients, his upcoming conference August 20-23, the mood in the industry right now, the role of technology, the percentage of the loans that are refis, and much more on this week's Norris Group real estate radio show and podcast.
