Association president speaks at Chattanooga Mortgage Bankers luncheon

If laughter can bridge the gap between two points, then Great Chattanooga Association of Realtors President Vicki Trapp built the equivalent of the Golden Gate Bridge between her Association and local mortgage bankers Thursday, March 13 Food Works. Trapp was invited to speak at the Chattanooga Mortgage Bankers Association’s annual installation of new officers, and had her hosts in stitches with her list of “simple demands” from Realtors. “We want the underwriter’s phone number,” she said, causing the bankers in the room to burst out laughing. “We don’t want to hear that the nice couple we’ve been showing houses to doesn’t qualify for a loan. We just want you to make it happen!” (David Laprad)
