Thought For Today: The Law of Giving! - 01:24 PM
Do you want success, help others succeed. Do you want good friends, be a good friend. Do you want the respect of your peers, respect them. In life, what we send out is what comes back to us. Smile at a stranger, in most cases they smile back. Focus on uplifting, appreciating and helping others with no agenda, and soon others will be looking for ways to uplift, appreciate and help you. The real key is no agenda. We all know people who are nice to us when they are trying to get something from us, this never works. On the (0 comments)

Many times our first actual face to face meeting is the morning that we go out to look at homes. During the course of our initial conversations, I always (5 comments)
FHA Changes ... yes... MORE! - 12:27 AM
FHA Changes. Two FHA changes happening right now that aren't related... or are they? There is a proposal (scheduled to go into effect Jan 1, 2010) that indicates one of the FHA changes is that brokers will no longer be approved by FHA to participate in FHA mortgages without going through an approved sponsoring lender.

Net worth for FHA mortgage lenders is going from $250,000 to $2.5 million! What does that mean? Long story made short: FHA is expecting sponsoring mortgage companies to create a sort of (10 comments)
