Delayed Financing in Lenoir City, TN Many of our clients come to my team due to our expertise in delayed financing.  Recently, we got a call from a potential customer that was working with another lender who couldn't quite figure it out.  Many lenders struggle with delayed financing or don't know...

The Fed Raises Rates .75 - June 15, 2022 The Fed has announced that they are raising the Fed funds rate by .75 as a result of this week's meeting.  This rate hike represents the biggest single increase since 1994, and comes on the heels of a hotter than expected inflation report last week.  The F...
Will Inflation Continue? The question of inflation is a tricky one for several reasons, perhaps the biggest being that the Fed is in damage control mode.  They're playing catch up in reckoning with their ignorance and incorrect actions based on their belief that the inflation we're knee-deep in w...

1. What was your first job and what did you learn from it?My actual first job was shoveling snow and mowing lawns in elementary school. A friend and I started "J & B Yard Services" and went door to door with flyers. My first "real" job was slave labor (I'm only partly kidding!) at a dry cleaners....
Celebrate Your Wins When I first started in the mortgage business in 2006, it was a different world in a lot of ways.  I didn't have a 'business', I had leads.  10/day, which turned into 50/week, which turned into 200/month.  Leads about as cold as they come.   A name, and a phone number, and tha...
