The Lender & Agent Relationship: How agents and lenders partner to win for their clients (Mortgage Master Class Episode 3)
HousingWire presents the Modern Mortgage Origination Master Class, a four-part educational series presented by Zillow Home Loans. This educational series features four classes designed to bring the HousingWire community expert-level knowledge on modern mortgage origination and how today’s homebuyer navigates the homebuying process.
This week’s episode features a conversation between Tracey Velt, Senior Director of data and content for HW Media, and two guests: Racquel Russell, Zillow’s Vice President of Partner Strategy and Operations, and Jason Mitchell, founder of the real estate team brokerage The Jason Mitchell Group.
In today’s conversation, they focus on how agents and lenders should be partnering to win for their clients, including how and where prospective buyers should start their homeownership journey, where consumers should start with financing, and some tips for agents selecting a lender. They also unpack some of the benefits and common misconceptions surrounding digital lenders, and how agents can best help prep consumers for the transaction process.
