Just in time for Groundhog Day, Kent and Steve have their own forecaster on this week’s episode of What the M! But instead of predicting the weather, this guest can predict the economy.
Rick Sharga is the Executive Vice President of Market Intelligence at ATTOM Data Solutions, a provider of comprehensive real estate data for companies in the mortgage, insurance, finance, and government markets. Rick is one of the country’s most frequently-quoted sources on real estate, mortgage, and foreclosure trends, and it’s easy to see why: he has more than 20 years of experience in the real estate and mortgage industries, previously serving in executive roles for Realty Trac, Carrington Mortgage Holdings, Ten-X, and Auction.com. He is also a founding member of the Five Star Institute’s National Mortgage Servicing Association.
With Rick’s background, position, and the breadth and depth of his knowledge of economic trends, he is uniquely situated to provide accurate and meaningful predictions with regard to the financial future of the country generally, and the mortgage industry specifically.
Welcome to What the M, Rick!
