Ambassador at center of impeachment probe has deep roots in lending

In 1985, Sondland was in his late 20s and working as a commercial real estate broker in Seattle when he decided to purchase a hotel that was in bankruptcy. “Never looked back,” he said in a 2016 interview . “Quit the brokerage business and went into the hotel business.”

But as Sondland was building a hotel empire, he put his expertise in distressed assets to use as a co-founder of Aspen Capital, a private equity firm based in Beaverton, Ore.

Key business partners at Aspen included Steven Rosenberg, who brought experience in commercial real estate lending, and Lawrence Mendelsohn, a financial industry veteran whose record included a guilty plea to a felony charge of filing a false tax return.

Aspen specialized in hard money loans to commercial borrowers who might not qualify for conventional real-estate financing. Such loans are made based on value of the collateral rather than the creditworthiness of the borrower, and they typically carry relatively high interest rates.

Banks counting on GSE reform to stop mortgage share erosion

Banks have been ceding market share in home lending to nonbank lenders for years, but that could change under a Treasury Department proposal to remove Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from conservatorship.

While no one is suggesting that the plan will help banks regain the share they had a decade ago — before the Dodd-Frank Act imposed significant restrictions on mortgage lending — bankers believe that stabilizing Fannie and Freddie could at least help them keep what they have.

“The uncertainty over Fannie and Freddie has not been good for the market,” said Kristy Fercho, the president of mortgage lending at the $20.2 billion-asset Flagstar Bancorp in Troy, Mich. “I don’t see this as fundamentally changing how banks operate their mortgage business. But what’s most important for Flagstar is that it provides a path forward to stabilize the housing industry.”

The declining role of banks in the $15.4 trillion U.S. residential mortgage lending market over the past decade has been dramatic. In this year’s second quarter, bank originations of single-family mortgages held for sale totaled $134.8 billion, or 58% below the $321 billion they originated in the same quarter 10 years ago, according to data compiled by FedFis. Banks’ holdings of mortgage-servicing assets are down 42% to $37.9 billion in that same 10-year span.

Is Obama going to CHANGE the lending practices of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? ?

Privatizing these institutions is not going to make the problems go away, sooner or later the realities must be admitted and handled correctly, this is simply going to make future Americans pay for this mess.


um... They were taken over by government. That's the opposite of privatization.

Yes, it's a put off. The inevitable will happen... but off of George Bush's watch.

People are dumb. It's a fact of life.
