FreddieMac-LogoMARCH

FREDDIE MAC HQ

Saturday, March 15, 2014

  • 8:00 am – Breakfast at Elly’s Pancake House, 372 E. Golf Road
  • 9:00 am – Meeting at Church in Trinity Hall
  • Presented by: Jim Zahrt

Jim Zahrt spent nearly four years at Freddie Mac as Director of Financial Communications. At Freddie Mac, Jim was responsible for all financial communications strategies and tactics, including the corporate annual report and financial news releases, served as financial news media contact, and was financial speechwriter for the CEO and Vice Chairman.

Jim will be speaking about:

  • The concept of home ownership in America
  • The history and evolution of mortgage loans and home ownership in America
  • How a modern home mortgage works and is put together, from the home buyer to the Wall Street investor
  • The creations of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and what they do
  • How the housing bubble was created and burst, including the involvement of  Freddie and Fannie, and how it led to the Great Recession

Jim will take what we should expect to be a very dry subject and turn it into a very interesting examination of how the mortgage industry affects each of us and America.

Jim is a member of the Trinity Board of Trustees and has been a member of Trinity United Methodist Church since 2010. Jim and his wife Sue Ann moved back to Illinois after having spent eight years in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC.
