Alcynna Lloyd: Good morning, everyone. We’re here again for HousingWire’s “Monday Morning Cup of Coffee,” which is a segment of HousingWire’s daily podcast that examines the most compelling mortgage, real estate, and fintech articles reported from the HousingWire newsroom. My name’s Alcynna Lloyd and I’m HousingWire’s digital media manager. Today, I’m joined with HousingWire’s managing editor, James Kleimann. Thanks for joining us today, James.
James Kleimann: Thanks, Alcynna as always.
Alcynna Lloyd: Of course. All right. So listeners, thanks for joining us on Facebook Live. Today, we’ll be discussing the hottest topics that came across our news desk this and last week. James, what stories caught your eye last week specifically?
James Kleimann: Most of you probably already know that our team is based in Dallas, and we have people in Austin and other places as well. But pretty much everybody got walloped last week, and so, you know, it was a really difficult week for the newsroom and I’m really proud of all the work that we were able to get done, despite a lot of people not having power. Alcynna, you still don’t have water, so it’s crazy. But yeah, so we still did manage to cover the news, which is our calling, of course. So one story that I thought was really interesting is that LoanDepot came out with their earnings report in a subsequent call, and I think that was on…the days blend together, but I wanna say Thursday. And a few interesting things about that.
