Mortgage and Lending - Mortgage of Texas & Financial - 206672



The tax credit has not yet been extended.  I've seen emails, blogs you name it today, saying the 8k tax credit has been extended.  This is not accurate information.  Folks, verify before you jump the gun on this. Our GVMT is voting this Friday.  They have verbally said it will or is highly likely...
This blog deserves the attention of every person in the financial industry.  I am not a mortgage broker, but I know many folks who work for them as well.  Thankfully I am a mortgage banker, direct lender.  That is the difference between a non bank entity mentioned in the blog and you tube clip.

Let's focus my dear AR friends! "You are either at the top of the food chain, or you're food!"   Every day you should strive to be the best you can be. I mean every single day. If you educate and motivate yourself in so...
What would you do if you knew you could not fail?  Would you try harder knowing that you would succeed?  Would you stop putting off projects you thought were too difficult or may take too much time?  Would you get out there and try something new because you thought "maybe I can create something?"...
I'm on politics overload.  I cannot turn on the TV without hearing it.  I walk in my office and a huge flat screen is on Fox News, all day.  Talk radio, all politics; both sides.  I'm even tired of seeing their faces when in line at the market on magazines.  Who said this, who said that, who is l...
