National Family Mortgage CEO Timothy Burke to Speak at Real Estate Connect NYC 2012 Conference

BOSTON, MA — (Marketwire — Jan. 9, 2012) — National Family Mortgage, America’s premier peer-to-peer lending solution for home loans between relatives, today announced that company founder and CEO Timothy Burke will join a panel on the future of home financing at the upcoming Real Estate Connect 2012 Conference in New York City, New York, on Friday, January 13, 2012.

Who:
Timothy Burke, CEO of National Family Mortgage
Burke has long been regarded as a consumer advocate, a peer-to-peer lending pioneer, and a disruptor of established financial service models. As the sales director of the first online peer-to-peer lending company CIRCLE LENDING (later, VIRGIN MONEY US), he was responsible for leading a team that defined the industry with over $450m in loan volume between family members and friends. This commitment to beating a broken institutional banking system and empowering consumers to efficiently build, protect, and transfer family wealth led to his founding of P2P lending website, National Family Mortgage. NFM brings a safe, easy and affordable way for families to realize the dream of homeownership, save money, reduce legal and gift tax issues, protect relationships and keep money in the family.

What:
Panel discussion, “Rethinking Lending: The Future of Financing
Innovative home financing solutions are crucial to our economic recovery. While home prices and interest rates are low, banks are not lending; today’s lenders require perfect credit, strong employment history and 20% down payments. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), 1/3 or recent first-time homebuyers received down payment help, usually from their parents. Meanwhile, the IRS has begun a nationwide crack-down on the widespread failure by Boomers to file required gift tax returns on intrafamily transactions. How can we ensure that today’s first-time buyers are not paying the price for yesterday’s failures by a broken banking system? Can peer-to-peer lending revive the real estate industry?

When:
Friday, January 13, 2012, 9:15 a.m. EST – 9:40 a.m. EST
Real Estate Connect Conference
Marriott Marquis Times Square

Produced by Inman News, Real Estate Connect is the preeminent, must attend conference that brings together the biggest names in real estate and technology to discover emerging trends and to develop innovative industry solutions for professionals and consumers.
