Featuring Dan Balbo, Program Manager – Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae Services
Dan Balbo is Program Manager for EBI’s Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae Services group. He joined EBI 11 years ago in 2010 and brings his 14 years of industry experience. Across the country, his team of assessors provide high quality reports and work with clients to meet their goals. We asked Dan about his favorite aspects of the industry, leadership qualities, and pastimes outside of EBI.
What do you like about your industry?
Dan: I really enjoy the engineering components of Property Condition Assessments (PCAs). Incorporating costs for repairs and determining what’s needed to maintain the property over the analysis term combines the worlds of engineering and real estate.
What does a successful team mean to you?
Dan: I think the pillars of a successful team are organization, responsiveness, timeliness, and respect for all, including the clients, buyers, and sellers.
What is most important to you when considering applicants for your team?
Dan: Prior experience is important because Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae PCA’s require high-level assessors. Also, attentiveness to detail and a willingness to learn from prior mistakes.
What do you do in your free time? Any hobbies?
Dan: In the summer, beach volleyball, boating, and the beach with my wife and two kids; in the winter, hockey league and skiing.
