Mortgage and Lending - V.I.P. Mortgage
You know the story.  You're at a party or a networking event and someone says to you "So what do you do?" For the last couple of years when I answer that question with "I'm a mortgage loan officer" I can see the person look a little funny and say "ohhhh - It must be tough for you right now".  Or,...
I love this song!  A friend sent this to me over the weekend and I just LOVE it!  It's Called Christmas with a capital C!!!I hope every radio station in the country plays this a lot for the next six weeks. It's okay to say "Merry Christmas" and I for one, will not be giving it up.
