What a community Active Rain is. Thank you so much for the input and advise given to me from my previous blog post. I really didn't expect this kind of mentorship.
Since my post the other day I have received the package from NewKey Home Lending and I've had an opportunity to talk to a leader at National Lending. Right now my brain is swimming with information and I need to spend some time processing the information that I have. I'll be reviewing it and posting my findings and observations over the next several days.
I do know that I'm on the right path and that the decision is getting closer. The big question is Should I become a Loan Broker or a Loan Officer? The advise and comments left to my previous post has helped immensely.
I couldn't sleep tonight so I spent some time on the internet searching for information on getting started in the mortgage industry. I found an interesting article about Mortgage Brokering as Freelance Opportunity. Here is the link - it's worth a read for anyone that is considering what direction to take: Article Mortgage Brokering as a Freelance Opportunity
I also found a fabulous marketing resource in an article written by Tom Domin. This is a must read for anyone getting started and his website has some great marketing information for everyone.
I am definitely leaning towards becoming more of a Loan Broker. The challenge for me is that at this juncture in my life and career I need the mentoring and face to face human interaction. I need to find a way to balance that need with the other important elements in the decision making process.
enjoy the journey,
