Appraisal Logistics, a leading provider of high quality appraisal management and compliance solutions for the residential/commercial mortgage industry, has found in Michael Matz a new National Director of Sales.

Matz has nearly 30 years of industry experience, with 12 years at Freddie Mac and 17 years at Fannie Mae. Matz has worked with hundreds of banks, credit unions, and mortgage companies throughout the past 29 years.

Within his roles at the GSEs, Matz coached dozens of organizations on selling their first loans into the secondary markets as well as on negotiating large portfolio loan sales with the industry’s biggest originators. His compliance- and efficiency-focused experience and perspectives will likely be a great benefit to the appraisal sector.

In the press release, Matz said: “This is a welcome opportunity to get closer to the front end of the mortgage origination process. The collateral valuation process is still a struggle for lenders and a source of confusion for consumers. Appraisal Logistics empowers the originators it serves to improve the consumer’s experience at the same time they ensure compliance and efficiency. I’m very pleased to be joining this team.”
