Most recently, Jones was a member of the Collateral Policy and Strategy team for Fannie Mae, where she led broader outreach, including appraisal process modernization. She forged relationships through an open line of communication, collaboration and transparency. In her tenure at Fannie Mae, Jones also served as a national review appraiser and as a subject matter expert for Collateral Underwriter, appraisal policy, as well as internal applications and procedures.
“The company is strategically investing in industry veterans that can help shape the future of the valuation industry, and Julie is an important part of that effort,” said Rose. “In her new role, Julie will help develop innovative solutions and facilitate market adoption of those solutions through training, education, and engagement with all stakeholders.”
