Industry Panel Discussion

 We would like to put together a panel discussion and invite 2-3 representatives from the different industries (lenders, title companies, inspectors, attorneys, appraisers, real estate agents etc.).  We will solicit questions, comments ahead of time and provide the questions to the panelists before the event.  The goal for the event is to help people understand why the different industries do things certain ways, help understanding with transaction etiquette and provide knowledge as to why things are done the way they are.  This will be good before getting into the busy summer season and hopefully create better communication.  After the discussion will put the questions into a FAQ for all the membership.


If you are interested in being a part of the panel or would like to submit questions, please reach out to one of the officers or directors of the board.


Still in early planning stages, looking at late April as a tentative time to hold this panel discussion.

Affiliate Night/ MCBR Elections

 Affiliate Night will be here before we know it – Thursday, May 10th.  We will be at Fox Hills and will be utilizing the booth/expo set up.  Affiliates can sign up for a booth anytime between now and May 2nd – call or email Diane.


We will send out more details as we get closer to the meeting date.
