For the third year, Tech Trendsetters is honoring the individuals behind the technology that is driving mortgage and real estate. From automation to AI, these visionaries are helping to push the housing industry into the future and away from outdated processes.

Last year’s impressive list of winners used the challenges of 2020 to propel the housing economy into a digital era and made some industry-changing advancements along the way.

Take a look at some of the 2020 honorees:

  • Maxwell co-founder John Paasonen has grown the company to serve more than 250 community lenders since 2015 and the Maxwell platform has now facilitated over $100 billion in loan volume, helping its customers enhance the borrower experience by closing loans 45% faster than the national average.
  • Lindsay Bhandari, VP, Capital Markets and Treasury Technology Management at Fannie Mae stood up the MBS Trade Portal and increased revenue by $20 million, saving 63 hours per month in the trade confirmation process. The portal received a 2020 Stevie Award for Top FinTech solution. 
  • Wyndham Capital Mortgage CEO, Jeff Douglas, has driven the company’s investment in robotics, bringing it into the forefront of efficiency, speed and growth. In 2020, Wyndham Capital was processing loans almost 30% faster than the mortgage industry average, with nearly three times the number of loans per full-time employee.
