What are the top 3 misconceptions people have about the home loan process?
1. It’s too difficult to get approved for a mortgage. Obtaining a pre-approval is a relatively quick process if you are prepared. Knowing the information and having documentation available makes the process much smoother. 2. The Lowest Rate is the most important part of their loan. It’s best to look at the bigger picture, which includes the loan officer, loan costs, programs available & the company as a whole. 3. That they are not in a position to stop renting and start owning. They don’t make enough money or don’t have a down payment. There are endless possibilities with the options that Guaranteed Rate has for clients.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
Every time I’m able to help someone purchase or refinance a home it’s satisfying. The times when it is the most rewarding is when I meet a client for the first time and they’ve been told no before or they don’t think they are able to purchase a home for whatever reason. I’m able to work with them step by step and get them into their dream home. The greatest satisfaction I get is when my clients refer me because I’ve provided them with an extremely easy home buying or refinancing process.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
My husband and I love to joke with and prank each other and the kids. Whether we randomly start a nerf gun war, water fight or hide with a Halloween mask on. You never know what’s next in our house.
