Relocating?  Well do I have a niche for you     There's been an accident.  How it happened I don't know, and why the only result from this terrible accident is that I've lost my leads, database, and past sales, I'm not sure.  But that's what Thomas Nelson imagined us to envision in this month's A...
How D1C can improve your client's experience       What's most important to a real estate agent when referring a buyer to a lender?  Communication?  Cost?  Cobranded marketing offers?  NOPE!       The #1 thing (get ready for the 'duh' moment) a real estate agent wants when referring a buyer is fo...
Recently Closed - USDA Manual Underwriting in Bluff City, TN       What a month.  After years of putting together a national footprint, relationships from coast to coast, and refusing to establish a "niche", my gameplan is all coming together.  In no other month has it been as evident as this one...
Hoping 900 Comes Faster        800,000 points.  5 years ago, that seemed like a lifetime away when I entered the world of ActiveRain and slowly learned my way around.  100,000 came as a struggle.  200,000 came faster.  Then I hit some momentum.  Lots of featured posts, the phone was ringing with ...

New Loan Program Helping Agents       Over the past few weeks I've talked with a couple agents living and working in crazy markets.  Low inventory seems to be the common theme in most markets coast to coast.  The problems this is causing for real estate agents are multifold.  For one, when listin...
Rebranding my Brand       The JM Loans team is in a state of change (good change, the very best kind).  While my team previously consisted of myself and a few individuals that made the magic happen (specifically my processor and assistant), we're in a state of growth.  We're not just licensed, bu...
Eave Mortgage       Disruption.  It's a term thrown around the real estate industry to the point where it's unclear what the term even means.  To break it down to the simplest form, the dictionary definition: dis·rup·tiondisˈrəpSH(ə)n/ noun  disturbance or problems that interrupt an event, activi...
