Not Your Average Market: A Modern Economist’s Perspective of Housing in 2021
Forget the “same old, same old” economic blah blah and understand today’s housing market in a new and meaningful way.
Dr. Skylar Olsen, one of her generation’s leading voices in housing economics, gives a fresh take on today’s unique housing market. This millennial star economist is passionate about the housing industry, from the economic impact of climate change on housing, to the ways different markets impact various communities.
Skylar is Principal Economist at ClimateCheck.com, a startup that allows users to get a climate-related risk assessment based on property address, Founder of consultancy Reimagine Economics, and Principal Economist at Tomo, the mortgage startup founded by two former execs at Zillow, where she worked for eight years.
In 2019, Skylar testified before Congress’ Housing Financial Services Committee, based on the hearing of “The Fair Housing Act: Reviewing Efforts to Eliminate Discrimination and Promote Opportunity in Housing.”
Skylar is frequently sought after for commentary in both local and national print and broadcast media.

C-Suite Conversation: Leadership in a Time of Digital Transformation
The pandemic pushed companies out of their comfort zones and into much-needed technological advancement. It also left many mortgage companies in a state of “tech overload” exhaustion — in a market where technology use could mean the difference between success and failure.
In this session, two of the mortgage industry’s most admired C-suite leaders discuss the challenges of leading teams in the Covid-19 era; strategies for promoting innovation, productivity and continued technology adoption; and reasons a continued focus on technology is so important going forward.
- Suzy Lindblom, COO, Kind Lending
- Shelley Leonard, EVP, Chief Product Officer, Black Knight
Mortgage Compliance in 2021
A panel of Chief Compliance Officers discuss lenders’ biggest compliance concerns, from evergreen challenges like MLO compensation, to recent changes like QM rulings and APOR guidelines, to post-election topics, like CFPB rule making and direction of the agency — and more.
- Laura LaRaia, Chief Legal Officer and Chief Compliance Officer at Sprout Holdings

Three noted exec experts dig into the real impact this market is having on communities of color in 2021. Find out why it’s so important to consider this issue as we move forward, and how the industry can work together address these challenges.
