Over 300 loan brokers and lenders gathered at the Red Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada for the first annual National Alliance of Commercial Loan Brokers (NACLB) conference on Sunday, March 8. The conference was organized by Commercial Capital Training Group (CCTG) and BoeFly. The buzz at the conference? It exceeded all expectations of both the lenders and the participating brokers.
“Kris Roglieri, founder of CCTG, and David Nayor, COO of BoeFly, did an outstanding job organizing this event,” commented Michael D. Sneden, Executive Vice President of ValueXpress. “Usually first-time events encounter a number of snags, but this conference ran perfectly, right from the moment when Kris and David quickly moved to take the opening cocktail event to a beautiful outdoor space from the less-exciting exhibit hall.”
“I am extremely pleased that ValueXpress stepped up to be a Platinum Sponsor of this event,” stated Sneden. “Our investment in this conference will pay off in spades, and we look forward to an opportunity to sponsor at the Platinum level again next year, particularly since Kris and David expect to double participation from both loan brokers and lenders.”
“While Mike was moderating the Real Estate Lending panel, our booth was five deep with brokers who wanted to learn more about CMBS conduit lending. Most were very excited about the unrestricted cash out and non-recourse features of CMBS conduit lending,” commented Jim Brett, Senior Underwriter at ValueXpress. “In addition, we received loan requests from other participating lenders who wanted to refer to us their bank clients that either were seeking cash-out refinances or were interested in non-recourse loans.”
“I was very pleased when Terry Luker received the honor of ‘Rookie Broker of the Year’ as I am guessing a transaction that we completed with him — Lees Condos Apartments in Bowling Green Kentucky — was helpful in Terry winning this award.”
