  • On the ‘Making the Right Choice – Lessons in Ethics and Compliance’ session, sponsored by Foreclosure Solution, Inc. with Rashmi Airan:  “This was absolutely fantastic. The topic was so relevant and her speaking style was engaging. The best presentation I’ve ever seen at UTA. What a wonderful addition to our program and a great way to set the tone for the conference.”

  • On the ‘Case Law Updates’ session sponsored by Daily Journal with Stephen T. Hicklin, Martin T. McGuinn and Kristin A. Schuler-Hintz:  “Always good, because the speakers here are knowledgeable and well prepared.”

  • On the ‘Nevada Mediation Portal Update’ sponsored by ServiceLink Auction with  Shannon Chambers:  “Mediation is government so they always have to waffle. It is not their fault. They are good women.”

  • On the ‘Bankruptcy Case Updates’ session sponsored by Metropolitan News with Mark Blackman, Lee Raphael, Dean Kirby and Ben Levinson:  “It’s the knowledge and expertise of the speakers, more so than the subject matter, which holds our attention and makes this info accessible.”

  • On the ‘Differences Between Residential and Commercial Nonjudicial Foreclosures’ session sponsored by iMailTracking with Keith Attlesey, DeeAnn Gregory, Julie O. Molteni, and Randy Newman:  “Informative session.”

  • On the ‘Legislative Updates’ session sponsored by First American Mortgage Solutions with Mike Belote, Holly Chisa, Robert Finlay, and Brigham Lundberg:  “Another great session of legislative updates. Holly is always a pleasure to hear from as she is knowledgeable, articulate, and funny. I appreciate Mike’s humor and history lessons included in his presentation. It adds context and interest to the session. Thanks to all!”

  • On the ‘Trustees Roundtable’ discussion sponsored by BDF Law Group with Linda Kidder Adleson, Tammy Laird and Olivia Todd:  “The facilitators were very knowledgeable.  Great idea for a roundtable as it gets the group participating and sharing war stories.”
