Summit’s Chief Housing Economist to be Panelist at This Year’s Five Star Conference

September 12, 2017, Washington D.C. -Dr. Eddie Seiler, Summit’s Chief Housing Economist, will be a featured panelist during this year’s Five Star Conference and Expo in Dallas, Texas.

Seiler will be participating in “State of the Industry Update”, a conversation focusing on industry and economic updates as part of the Legal League Servicer Summit. The panel will be held on September 20th at 8:05 a.m. 

John Steele, a partner at Zieve, Brodnax, and Steele, will moderate the panel. Other panelists include Kevin Brungardt (CEO, RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing), Justin Burch (Managing Director, Collingwood Group), and Joel Singerman (Counsel, Office of Regulations, CFPB).

“I’m very excited to participate with so many industry leaders,” Seiler said. “With so many homeowners facing natural disasters, the GSEs entering their ninth year of conservatorship, and the opportunity to use data in smart regulation under the new administration, there’s much to discuss with this diverse panel.”

The Five Star Conference and Expo, hosted by the Five Star Institute, brings together housing and mortgage industry professionals for a three-day conference to explore changes in the foreclosure, property management, servicing, and investment.
