Shaping the Future of Our Industry

Inlanta Mortgage recently attended an educational seminar focusing on the differences between Generation X and Generation Y and how the mortgage and real estate industry must recognize how these generations are influenced with regards to home buying and financing. The training session was presented by Matthew Ferrara, organized by the Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Education Foundation, and sponsored by Inlanta Mortgage.  Inlanta is proud to be a supporter of the Education Foundation and their efforts in support of the future of the Mortgage Industry.

The Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Education Foundation(WMBEF) is dedicated to promoting, conducting, and creating educational activities for the mortgage banking industry. In addition, the foundation seeks to encourage, recruit, and promote the advancement of minorities in the real estate finance industry. Furthermore, the foundation provides scholarship funds to students focusing on real estate finance at accredited colleges, universities, and technical schools.  Since 1989, the Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Association has awarded over 35 scholarships to men and women pursuing careers in the mortgage banking and real estate industries.

It is important to make sure we are helping those currently in the mortgage industry and those who will be the future. The WMBA does a great job of keeping current mortgage professionals up-to-date on the latest legislation, reforms and industry news. This kind of support helps our professionals provide the best services to their customers and business partners and keeps the industry strong and reputable. By raising funds for the professionals of the future, we are helping ensure the industry will remain solid and educated. Furthermore, supporting industry professionals in training, we encourage a seamless transition from generation to generation and guarantee the sharing of new technology and products with future homebuyers.

“As a member of the WMBA and a supporter of the Education Foundation, it brings me great pride in helping shape the future of our industry,” said Nick DelTorto, Inlanta Mortgage’s Executive Vice President and Treasurer of the WMBA. “We as mortgage and real estate professionals need to work together to keep our industry at its best and that starts with the education of current professionals and the young people that are on their way.”
