Well, Music City didn’t disappoint last week and neither did the Annual Conference! I hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as I did.
Nashville is an incredible town, and we had an incredible turnout – over 1,500 professionals from across our industry. The impressive size of the crowd seems fitting as we celebrated the tremendous growth in our industry. Yet despite the crowds, venue and complexity of the event, I was delighted when a customer remarked, “Freddie Mac is like a well-oiled machine; it never ceases to amaze me how talented the people are and how informative the conference is.” I couldn’t agree more.
Our guest speakers were tremendous, so I’d like to thank to Brian Stoffers, Kate Johnson and Jeff Blau for their time and sharing their insights at this pivotal time in our industry. And I’m still pondering some of Peter Diamandis’ comments about disruption – what an interesting, driven and successful individual. He gave us lots to think about, although, I’m a little scared now that my smartphone and laptop may plot a coup against me.
Looking forward, 2019 will be a year of transition as Debby takes the reigns at Multifamily. But be assured, we will continue our innovative leadership and will always be committed to our relationships with all of you, ensuring certainty of execution, and constantly striving to be faster, better and more responsive.
As we close out what may be another record year, I’d like to give you my heartfelt thanks. We value all our Seller/Servicers and know that our strong business relationships lay the foundation of the multifamily housing industry. That foundation is strong, but never finished, so let’s keep building.
