I got to tell you that I love the new rankings page! I contacted A.R. a year ago saying that it'd be great to see.  What I always thought is that it'd be so great to see the top 10 or top 100 all over Active Rain.  I sent that in and, I forgot about it.  Needless to say, one year later.....here i...
Donny Osmond had it right when he sang that old song "and they called it Puppy Love."  It seems to me that it's the best statement ever for Tessa and Otto!  Otto is only 15 months old, but between the two of them, you're looking at two great pups!  How cool is this stuff.  You couldn't write it ...
As forwarded on to me by a trusted colleague....the bias today is toward's floating, and not locking. "Mortgage Bonds continue to push up against formidable resistance at all-time highs for the 9th consecutive session but are off their best levels. At 1:00pm ET, the Treasury will announce the res...
No doubt you have heard some chatter, some factual and some false, about how the Dodd-Frank (Financial Reform) Act will alter the way in which lenders can compensate loan officers in the future. Let's address some of the facts based on the actual language in the law, keeping in mind that the prov...
Great post by a great friend and leader in the industry, Jeff Belonger.  This is something that took a lot of effort to create.  The response, so far has been overwhelming.  Just some great folks dispelling the myths that exist in the mortgage industry today!  Meet the Members of the Mortgage Myt...
I want to blog and post more posts, but the reality is that I'm spending more and more time learning and learning and being so "damn defensive," that it's hard to serve.  Now don't get me wrong, but take a few moments and listen to my story. I am a mortgage banker, but I've always been an attorne...
I always try to dress professionally in my nine to five job.  Actually, my job is more 7:30 til 9:00 pm.  I carry myself in a professional manner and am rarely walking the streets of my local community naked.  Most of the time, I wear working casual clothes, but never anything really atrocious u...
DITKA, THE INTRODUCTION!!!! So, my sister, Linda, went to and graduated from Rosary High School in Aurora.  Her daughter, my niece, goes there as a student.  My mom and dad, a good supporters of great education, ask my wife and I, and my sister and her husband, and my other brother, Eric, and his...
You know what I love about the 4th?  It's a holiday that just doesn't have any gifts, any presents, just celebration and gratitude.  It's awesome because you get to see, right here, that my wife and Grant, or "G" as I call him, are relishing the moment!  And in this case, it's moments!  A lot of...
There was a time that Unions were necessary.  I remember reading Upton Sinclair's, book "The Jungle" and thought about how horrendous America was to let workers operate in the conditions that were so prevalent in the days of the Chicago Stockyards.  Flash forward to 2010.  The balance of power ha...

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
