Mortgage industry veteran and former Landsafe exec to oversee business growth in Southwest

January 29, 2016 Sugar Land, TX – Valuation Partners, a national appraisal management company with access to over 20,000 independent fee appraisers in all 50 states, announced that Denise Neely has joined the company as Southwest Region vice president. In her new role, Neely will be responsible for overseeing business development and new client services in Arkansas, Alabama, Colorado, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.

Neely has more than 25 years of experience in sales and operations in the real estate and mortgage services industry. Most recently she served as assistant vice president of internal sales and relationship management at Landsafe Inc., where she worked as a liaison between Landsafe’s product fulfillment team and Bank of America’s branch leadership. In this role, Neely developed new valuation reporting that reduced turn times and helped branches consistently obtain final approvals for purchase loans before their contingency dates. Neely also served as a senior account executive at Landsafe, where she twice won Countrywide’s Presidential Award for top sales in her region.

“Denise is an exceptional talent and is one of very few professionals capable of serving such a large and diverse client base,” said Bill Fall, CEO of Valuation Partners. “Right now, the mortgage industry’s demand for stronger appraisal quality and third-party compliance is more stringent than ever. Given her track record of results, Denise is the perfect choice to accelerate our business growth in the Southwest and help greater numbers of lenders access the valuation products and services they need to excel.”

Neely’s roles prior to Landsafe include vice president, loan administration for First Horizon Home Loan Corporation, assistant vice president of the operations team at Citicorp Mortgage, and general manager for Total Credit Services. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in journalism and advertising.

“I am thrilled to join Valuation Partners, a true industry leader that is unequaled in the areas of appraisal quality and customer service,” Neely said. “In my 25 years in the business, valuations have never been so critical to the success of mortgage lenders as they are today. I look forward to leveraging Valuation Partners’ innovative products and services to help lenders regain confidence in the appraisal process and take their businesses to the next level.”
