Dear Mortgage Brokers, Real Estate Professionals and Consumers,
I believe it is that time again where I spend some time out of my busy day to inform you of another bad experience that I just had with a lead generation company called Lending Universe http://www.LendingUniverse.com As you have read my previous blogs, I have no shame in coming out and blogging about a bad company because as a good person that I am, I want to save you from losing money and the headache that I got from Lending Universe. I actually spoke to my rep at Lending Universeand I told him that I am a very important mortgage professional and I blog so please make sure that you send me better leads or I will have to blog about your company and the disaster that I've been through so far. I have become a very popular mortgage professional on the web and people in the same line of work as me listen to what I have to say. People really enjoy the honesty, integrity and professionalism that I bring to the table, day in, day out.
Lending Universe Experience:
I have been with Lending Universe for maybe 18-22 months. I requested leads that were fresh and loans that were in Connecticut only. Guess what, I received no new loans or anything worth time consuming. I am not even sure if they do generate leads because I have never seen their advertising on-line. The only thing I do know is that once I did receive leads from them, they were all 2-6 months old.
Here are some responses that I got from Lending Universe consumers:
1.) I don't even know how to use a computer so I didn't fill anything on-line for a rate request, etc.
2.) Yes, I did want a mortgage but I applied on-line 4 months ago so please remove me from your phone list.
3.) You are the 20th person that has called me so please remove me from your list.
4.) I even had a consumer scream and use foul language with me since I was probably the 40th person calling her in the past 2 months.
5.) I already funded and refinanced 4 weeks ago.
Lending Universe even has a BBB symbol on their website. Is it real? Are they really a good company but I just got burnt? What is the truth? We may not know the truth but I do know that I will never, EVER do business with Lending Universe again. This is my way of venting and letting others know about this fraud portal that took about $600-$800 of my own hard earned money.
Please comment on this blog and share your good experience or bad experience with the rest of the readers. I doubt there will be any positive feedback and I am sure there will be a ton of nightmares shared here.
Bottom line: STAY AWAY FROM LENDING UNIVERSE! http://www.lendinguniverse.com/
CONSUMERS: Stay away from Lending Universe! Not a good company to give your information to or you will be bothered for the rest of your life.
MORTGAGE PROFESSIONALS: Look for another way of picking up leads, this is not the way to do, trust me.
REALTORS: Stay away from Lending Universe because if they are giving me bad business, what will they give you?
I complained about the old Lending Universe leads and they gave me more old leads! Not a good way of doing business with a person like me who is willing to purchase your product/leads for the rest of my career.
Thanks for reading my blog today and I look forward to hearing some comments from consumers, realtors and most importantly the mortgage brokers/mortgage professionals who had bad experiences with Lending Universe.
***Note: I rarely ever talk negatively about someone or in this case "Throw Them Under The Bus" but this had to be done. Every single day I strive to be the best mortgage professional and best human being that I can be and for people to be out there taking advantage of good people like myself just bothers me a whole lot. My goal is to have this blog read by as many people as possible so they won't fall a victim to Lending Universe.
