Closing Success Story

Mortgage and Lending with Larry Bettag - Cherry Creek Mortgage

So a couple of days ago I wrote a post entitled When You Care, You Often Times Become the Hero!!!!.  It was about a client who was denied by two other lenders.  The clients then found me on Active Rain and we got the deal done.  Well, today was the closing!  When I got there....issues abounded.  Thankfully most of the issues were between buyer and seller.  There were some ancillary issues that got scrubbed up during the closing.

The real estate agent was thrilled with the closing.  She said she'd been in the business 14 years and had never seen a deal pulled off like this.  She called me two hours after the closing and said that she was still "pinching herself" as she just couldn't believe it.  She said

"from now on I'm referring all my clients to you.  You were professional, and backed what you said.  I didn't believe you at first because I had already heard the same thing from both other lenders.  You will get all my business from now on!"

What a great way to start a weekend!

Congratulations on pulling off a deal when other lenders couldn't.  You obviously made a positive impact and 2011 will be bringing you new business as a result.

Congrats!  As a lender, that's like hitting the lottery when a good agent says they are going to refer all their clients to you.

Other than the "you were professional" comment... I don't have any trouble believing that you were the hero, and pulled them all through to the end.  Nicely done, my friend.  Nicely done.
