Safeguard remains an industry leader through best practices, communication, and innovation.
Since its founding, Safeguard has developed and maintained a reputation as an industry leader to advance best practices through innovation, raise the profile of the industry, and open the lines of communication between the servicing industry and government officials across the country.
Founder and Chairman Robert Klein is known in the industry as an innovator, sharing relevant industry information, offering creative solutions to meet clients’ evolving needs, and leading efforts to create dialogue to address issues that impact the industry. Robert represents Safeguard and the industry as an active member of national associations that include the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), USFN, AFN, National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS), and the Business Council of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
Safeguard also is a prime sponsor of most industry conferences including USFN, Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), REOMAC, California Mortgage Bankers Association (CMBA), Five Star, Source Media Mortgage Servicing Conference, Texas Mortgage Bankers Association (TMBA), National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS), and dozens of local, state, regional, and national code enforcement conference events.
Additionally, Safeguard is proud to organize and facilitate the annual National Property Preservation Conference (NPPC), which is attended by representatives from all facets of the industry, including the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), field services companies and mortgage servicing corporations.
Safeguard is an industry leader in providing relevant, timely, and strategic information to clients, vendors, and the industry as a whole. Safeguard understands the challenges that mortgage servicers face to stay current with frequent changes in the industry, investor and insurer guidelines and a multitude of critical issues to assure compliance and reduce potential out-of-pocket costs. Through Safeguard’s All Client Alerts (ACA's), we provide industry updates and news on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
ACA’s include topics such as updates on local ordinances, recommended best practices to comply with investor and insurer guidelines, and information about changes to applicable guidelines, rules and regulations. Originally created to inform Safeguard clients, ACA’s have grown into an industry-wide resource for thousands of people interested in mortgage servicing and property preservation of vacant, defaulted and foreclosed homes.
Safeguard maintains close working relationships with government investors, including HUD, FHA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and VA, to remain intimately aware of all current regulations and regulatory interpretations. As advocates for our clients, Safeguard has proactively worked with investors to develop strategies to improve operational efficiencies. Safeguard’s leadership has been instrumental in assisting investors to create rules and regulations that save time and money for both our clients and investors.

This ensures that clients have timely and relevant information at all times.
