I've been in the mortgage industry for 23 years, before that I was a real estate agent. Both sides are very rewarding,but I found that the lending side is more my calling. I have borrowers that have used me as their Loan Officer two or three times and have sent family and friends to me over the years. I feel like referrals from your clients are the biggest compliment a loan officer can get. I not only help them get their loan, I will go to closing with them to answer any questions that could come up. I have even sat in for the realtor if they can't make the closing. I plan to be in the business for many more years.
