"I was able to work with new companies in setting up our correspondent programs due to the number of other lenders that were in the area. I have also been able to connect with several developers that were looking for capital. I always get a client out of the conference whether it is a lender we can fund deals for or an actual investor that we can directly help. When I went to the Newport conference last year, it was a great, intimate conference. I was able to meet some local lenders that had offices within a few blocks of our offices. We had a business so close, yet it took going to your conference to build the relationship. Geraci is by far one of the best conferences for building relationships and creating memories that will grow many fruitful relationships."

— James Holland, Triumph Capital
