We are a mortgage fraud analytics firm offering expert services related to residential mortgage transactions from the consumer protection standpoint. As an industry leader it is our mission: To raise the standard of truth in lending through mortgage loan auditing, education, and advocacy.
McDonnell Property Analytics is a recognized thought leader and innovator with over thirty (30) years’ experience in the evolution and practice of consumer-centric transactional analysis, mortgage risk assessment, forensic mortgage auditing, and mortgage fraud investigation. McDonnell Property Analytics also advises, trains, and performs services for county registers of deeds, attorneys general, courts, and other governmental agencies.
The origins of the firm date back to 1987 when founder, Marie McDonnell, identified a critical knowledge gap in the real estate market that left consumers vulnerable to exploitation by rogue creditors who stood to profit more by steering consumers into high risk mortgage transactions than into safe and sound products that promoted long-term, sustainable homeownership.
In 1991, when no off-the-shelf mortgage auditing software existed, McDonnell programmed her own analytical tools and developed mathematically-based technologies that enabled her to detect a massive mortgage fraud scheme perpetrated by the Dime Savings Bank of New York which prompted attorney general investigations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Connecticut and resulted in multi-million dollar settlement awards and relief programs for consumers in 1996.
On June 28, 2011, McDonnell Property Analytics completed the first audit of a Registry of Deeds in the country commissioned by the Honorable John L. O’Brien, Register of Deeds, Southern Essex County, Massachusetts. One of the by-products of the McDonnell/O’Brien collaboration is a list of robo-signers which remains active to this day.
McDonnell Property Analytics’ accomplishments since then have been legendary and have contributed to precedent setting decisions by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in U.S. Bank v. Ibanez and Eaton v. Fannie Mae; to the $5.38 million jury award for a Texas couple in Wolf v. Wells Fargo Bank; and to a successful result for the homeowners in Wells Fargo Bank v. Juza where the presiding judge in Green Bay, Wisconsin vacated a 7-year-old judgment of foreclosure and voided a $900,000 Mortgage due to McDonnell’s finding there had been fraud upon the court.
