As I mentioned I would be back on the first of February, I am now in Pasadena, California, speaking at ARELLO’s (Association of Real Estate License Law Officials’) MidYear Meeting. David Marsh, ARELLO’s Law and Policy Consultant, and I are here presenting “Protecting Mortgage Consumers: The Latest on Real Estate Fraud and Legislation.”
If you’re unfamiliar with ARELLO, the organization founded in 1930 to facilitate the exchange of information and cooperation among regulators and policy makers in the area of real property. Today, the organization has grown in stature and in recognition by growing its membership, attaining financial stability, and formulating and adopting uniform policies and standards in the fields of education, administration and enforcement. From everything I have seen thus far, it is clear to me that the association’s membership is sincerely committed to the effective administration and enforcement of the license laws and of the importance of regulation in a healthy marketplace.
David will lead off our presentation by providing conference attendees with an update on current and pending state and federal laws, while I’ll be sharing information about the latest trends in real estate and mortgage fraud.
