Note from the Founder by Robert Pegg

by 07 Mar 2009
Stunned, outrage, disbelief ? These are just a few emotions you may feel when reading about Christopher Warren. He is the subject of our feature article this month titled USA vs. Christopher Warren. While this article may elicit anger it may also have you wondering how the heck he got away with what he claims. We have all heard about stories and rumors of fraud within our beloved industry but never on this level. His story of corruption, flight from justice and subsequent capture at the Canadian border while trying to re-enter the U.S. is both despicable and fascinating. This issue of TNR also brings back some notable authors such as George Marentis, our ?go-to? guy for compliance issues. He writes on a number of topics such as the SAFE Act, National Licensing and HVCC. Stewart Mednick comes at us with Part II of his most popular column to date - Should I Stay or Should I Go, Part II. Tom Ninness writes an inspiring article on how Mohammed Ali can help you close loans (really!). And Andy Bogdanoff, founder of Remington Financial Group, discusses a popular loan among commercial lenders - Multi Family financing. We would also like to invite everyone to visit us at our booth (we are attending both the residential and commercial expos) for the 26th Annual Regional Conference of Mortgage Bankers Associations. The conference will be held March 15 ? 17th at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The folks at the MBA NJ have worked extremely hard in organizing this event. Come out and show your support. Keep up the fight, Robert Pegg
