Build-A-Broker is an in-person training event designed to help you establish the solid foundations of your business. This program is designed to show you the basics of setting up your business — from how to rent space, to what accounting programs are recommended — and will also cover topics including choosing your loan origination systems, how to pick a CRM system, and more.

Brokerage 101

Brokerage 101 focuses on the foundation for establishing your business, presented by experienced mentors. This course includes topics such as:

  • LO Compensation Basics
  • Choosing an accounting program and payroll provider
  • What is the right corporate form for you? (LLC vs. Corp.)
  • How to determine if your workers are employees or independent contractors.

Add To Your Portfolio

We have a panel of lenders to discuss innovative products you can use to set your brokerage up for success, such as:

  • Non-QM
  • Private Lending
  • Reverse Mortgages

Establishing a Competitive Advantage

Few brokerages can fully grow without offering more than the standard-vanilla residential home mortgage. We bring in product experts to discuss an array of diverse products such as:

  • Non-QM loans, and the pros and cons
  • Reverse Mortgages
  • Fix & Flip mortgages
  • and more

Brokerage 102

Brokerage 102 focuses on the additional foundational issues for establishing your business, with topics such as:

  • Policy & Procedures that every company needs, including BSA/AML, Sexual Harassment, and more
  • Marketing & Compliance — under RESPA, TILA, Reg. N, the CFPB, getting leads, co-marketing with Realtors, and more.
  • Compliance training, auditing, and testing.

This is some text inside of a div block.
Pre-registration required

Everyone in the mortgage industry is wondering: what will the rise of Artificial Intelligence mean? There's no need to guess, since there's already one company that's been running on AI-powered systems since 2018. Sun West Mortgage's sister company, Celligence, created an AI underwriting and processing platform that Sun West has been using to power its company for the past five years. Underwriting is now measured in minutes, and processing tasks are primarily automated. This has allowed Sun West to make better loan decisions, expand credit to more communities, and free originators to spend more time building business rather than babysitting files. In the past year, Sun West has opened its system -- called Angel AI -- to the origination community at large, and backs loan decisions made by its system "100%" -- meaning that if an originator gets a green light from Angel AI, Sun West will commit to closing the loan, period. Don't miss this incredible session looking inside a large mortgage lender running its operations fully on artificial intelligence. The future is already here. So now the question is: what's next?
