Thankful For My Team Katerina, Erica, and Corliss.  You may not have seen these names on ActiveRain, but if you've worked with our team in the past 12 months, odds are good you're familiar with at least one of them (most likely my right hand woman, Erica).  In 2020, I decided it was time to grow ...

Ever wonder why the phone won't stop ringing after applying for a loan?  Does it seem like your mailbox gets a little more full of junk mail and refinance solicitations from lenders you've never heard of (usually showing off loan terms that seem 'too good to be true')?  If so, you've been turned ...

The Infinite (Mortgage) Game This month's ActiveRain Challenge was to write a book report.  As an English Literature major who spent 4 years of college doing that, I'm a bit rusty, but couldn't pass up the opportunity for "easy" points.  It so happens I was in the middle of reading Simon Sinek's ...

Let A Pro Handle It This is a post about referrals.  I'm licensed in 20 states, and my team has an additional 3 (Idaho, Hawaii, and Washington).  Because of that, we see a lot of referrals from folks that don't cover as wide a range of states.  We get a lot of referrals from other loan officers t...
