Rachel has been in the mortgage and real estate industry for over 20 years and in that time has seen many changes in lending and real estate processes. Her focus has always been on providing the best information that she can to make the industry better.
Rachel's vast experience in the industry allows her a broad background from which she provides excellence in real estate and mortgage education. She has offered compliance awareness, pre-licensing and CE hours to many hundreds of mortgage professionals through authoring and teaching courses, including at many conferences. She also oversees the online education program offered for mortgage and real estate education.
As a Real Estate Agent, her real estate clients benefit from her educational background because she spends the time to ensure that her clients get not just top quality service but understand the service that they are getting including understanding the entire process from loan qualifying, finding the right house, contract negotiations, closing the loan on the home, and even what happens after closing.
For over 15 years, she has provided mortgage compliance consulting services, bringing extensive experience in compliance plan development, pre-audit inspections, and post-audit resolution. She began originating mortgage loans as a banker for two years before moving into mortgage brokering as a TX Mortgage Broker. Many years ago, she saw a need and opened the first Texas contract mortgage loan processing firm and later sold the company as education became the primary focus. Rachel is still a licensed Loan Originator.
Additionally, she spent 8 years as a Project Manager of a web-based mortgage lending software platform. She led her team through designing and overseeing the development of the software, creating workflow efficiencies, compliance, and other initiatives in addition to training, testing, and implementation. Her extensive background in mortgage compliance and mortgage technology allows her to design and implement software and compliance processes for Underwriting, Closing, Retail, and Wholesale Origination as well as QC procedures.
