Ok, so rates drop, and the refi calls start coming in earnest. What's the first thing the typical Loan Originator does? Forgets about the Real Estate Agent. Classic mistake, yet I see it all the time in our industry. If you are a full time Realtor working your butt off in this market, the last th...
I am contemplating joining a service that will allow potential buyers to request information to be texted to them from a sign rider. Is there anyone using this service, and if so is it working?

Yesterday, one of my long term and trusted referral sources asked me the question "What the hell is going on in the mortgage market?".

How come mortgage rates did not come down yet? Should I refinance now?Before I continue, pls note that I have...
There's no reason to be confused in this "new mortgage market" we find ourselves in. Experienced Loan Officers, like myself and many others, have always understood the market and have worked hard to deliver the highest quality service our Realtors and attorneys, and thier clients deserve. Yes, th...
I've been in the mortgage origination business for over 20 years, and it still amazes me that our industry continues to hire un professional and unknowledgable people. I make it a point to educate my business partners, co workers, and clients about the benefit of working with a quality company wi...
