Head of Wells Fargo Lending Provides Update on Mortgages During COVID-19

Michael DeVito, Executive Vice President and Head of Wells Fargo Home Lending, debunks common misconceptions surrounding banks and mortgages during the COVID-19 pandemic in an exclusive interview on The Brian Buffini Show podcast

CARLSBAD, Calif. (April 23, 2020) — In a recent interview on The Brian Buffini Show, Executive Vice President and Head of Wells Fargo Lending, Michael DeVito, shared how the mortgage industry has adapted to support homeowners during the COVID-19 pandemic. DeVito follows guests like Dr. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist with the National Association of REALTORS®, and Dr. Ben Carson, U.S. Housing Secretary, who have also appeared on The Brian Buffini Show podcast in recent weeks to provide clarity in these unprecedented times.

As the world grapples with what the new normal will be post-coronavirus, DeVito says the major banks are constantly working on ways to adapt, like processing loans and appraisals remotely. Unlike the housing crash of 2008, DeVito explains that the COVID-19 pandemic happened at a time when the financial system could support those economically impacted. Once this crisis passes, DeVito believes that there will be new opportunities for the banks to step up: “The most adaptive of us – the most adaptive companies, the most adaptive teams, the most adaptive people – they’re going to be the winners.”

Brian Buffini, a real estate industry influencer, engages DeVito in a compelling discussion, getting answers to questions on many borrowers’ minds. Buffini agreed with DeVito, explaining the significance of assessing the situation then adapting. To help individuals adapt to their new normal when coronavirus subsides, Buffini also mentioned his 5 Circle Fit Challenge, a new free wellness program from Buffini & Company.
