The Top Ten Things We As People Don't Think About!?! - 04/24/07 09:28 PM
Things you won't find in this top ten may or may not be highly debated on Capital Hill, around the water cooler, on talk-shows, in your local prison, on Fox News, or even at the local pub over beers and Jaeger Bombs. In No Particular Order: 1) Real Estate Professionals need more education.

What if I had to start all over tomorrow? - 04/13/07 08:24 PM
Today, the 13th of a Friday, I wondered just that. What if I woke up Monday morning as a (Gosh, I hate this term) loan officer, and started all over? Where would I start? What would I do?

I often wonder that. I'm not talking life itself(That is a whole different ball of complex wax), but here on Active Rain. How did Mr. Sardi end up on this Great Forum? I'm not sure if I was invited...if I was, not sure by who? I'm not sure if I stumbled across this fine establish by mere cyber-chance. I'm not real sure at all.
Now, without the glasses and lipstick....I'm a man in the mortgage biz. I've found this forum to be a very insightful look into all aspects of my chosen profession. Of course, garnering business was my motive. Yet, (11 comments)
