Defendant's wire fraud and money laundering sentence is affirmed in part where the district court did not clearly err in finding that defendant was an organizer of the fraudulent scheme.  However, the sentence is remanded where the record included no evidence to support an inference that the foreclosure sales prices at issue were appropriate estimates of what the original lenders received when they sold the loans to the successor lenders.
