Current mortgage situation-interview with Kathie Lattin - 01/24/08 05:39 PM
As a REALTOR® operating in Pagosa Springs, my business is tied very closely to the mortgage industry. The shifting tides of rates and corrections have left me dependent on my "daily fix" via the Internet to try and maintain some understanding of current mortgage conditions. Thankfully, I don't have to go this alone. Recent news of fairly significant rate changes whet my appetite enough to seek out someone who really knows what's going on. Kathie Lattin of First Southwest Bank was gracious enough to give me a few minutes of her time this week. Kathie is the vice President of First (6 comments)

Before I bought my first house or obtained my real estate license I was definitely in that category. I often get sideways looks when during conversation someone finds out that I am not a salaried employee of my broker, and that I indeed do not get a paycheck until I successfully help someone buy or sell real estate. Additionally, there is a lack of understanding when it comes to who pays who upon the (9 comments)
