Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
First Time Home Buyers and Move up buyers. Most people know that the mortgage landscape has had dramatic changes over the last several years and they are looking for someone that can help them safely and quickly navigate the home loan process.
What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
We need to determine not just the type of mortgage that best fits our clients current needs, but also their longer term plans and aspirations. Purchasing a home is often the largest financial decision people make and it is helpful to have an experienced hand to help guide.
What resources could you recommend that borrowers use to learn more about the mortgage process and how to ensure a successful home closing?
I still think that a seasoned loan officer is the best resource to help answer questions, guide the process and provide information.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
After 27 years, it is still the first time home buyer that is so happy to have their new home!
