Cristy Conolly is the Senior Vice President of Quality Control & Compliance at NAN, a member of the Florida Real Estate Appraisal Board (FREAB) as appointed by the Governor and serves on the AMC and Emerging Issues Committees for Collateral Risk Network (CRN.) “NAN creates a relationship with its clients and appraisers where compliance and exceeding quality standards work together seamlessly, while never sacrificing integrity or our commitment.” Making compliance easier on everyone and understood by all is one of Cristy’s core competencies that she brings to NAN on a daily basis. Cristy gained the experience for the industry-wide perspective needed for NAN’s quality and compliance by completing appraisals for wholesale and retail lenders, other AMCs, servicing companies and attorneys in the Philadelphia metro area. In addition to the many educational conferences she continues to attend, her appraisal and business background was an important factor in selecting Cristy for the chief role in NAN’s Compliance Task Force in 2013. “NAN understands that compliance must be solid, simple, and fast. NAN’s ‘Compliance Portal’ is a reflection of our deep understanding of the rules and regulations of our industry. “I love working with a team that works to make the industry better for appraisers, lenders and consumers alike”.
When Cristy is not traveling the country attending seminars and meeting with industry leaders, she enjoys spending time with her young children. They can often be found boating and swimming in the beautiful Tampa Bay area. While not a Grammy-award winning singer, Cristy also loves singing along at live music events with family and friends and is a self-professed Parrot Head.
