Below are my 7 areas of concern for each and every client that I come across and you can count on any referrals that I work on for you will be treated the same.
Customer Service - I believe that this is the first and foremost of all traits of being a great loan officer. You can close 15 files a month and if you do not handle your customers with the best in service, you will never get repeat business.
Follow-up skills - In my 15+ years of customer service, I have seen more laziness than what I would care to mention. Bottom line is, when you tell a customer that you will call them back in a timely manner, then do it. And this does not just stop with the customer. If you are dealing with an issue for a customer, then don't allow that issue to fall to the wayside because of neglect. Do not expect what you do not inspect.
Product Knowledge - most loan officer can get a file through because they do not know their own products. When you get to where you are done with learning, you might as well find another profession.
Time Management - too many loan officers do not now how to manage their own day. To many times have I seen loan officers that try to manage their day without a To Do List. If you are not making a plan, you are planning to fail.
Listening skills - when I mention this to new loan officers, I always get a weird look out of them. It is plan and simple, if you do not listen to your customer, how do you know what their needs are?
Management of a pipeline - I have seen so many loan officers lose a customer in the cracks because they can not manage more than a few files at a time. This is bad. I always have told my staff to have 20 files working and know each and everyone of them. It use to amazing some of my staff that as a manager of a branch and having over 100 files in the pipeline working and another 100 being solicited, that when a customers name was mentioned, I could tell you the entire file.
Honesty - this is something that I think all loan officer possess but do not always use. Here it is in a nutshell. If you are honest to a customer, in the long run, it will benefit you and them. More over, you, because the customer will trust you and refer you to people they know.
I want to say that developing my own website with R & D Art was extremely easy and very hands on. Danny worked with me on the domain that I purchased, www.eugeneloanguy.com until it worked and then taught me how to use the various features. He is always there to assist me in making certain the website works for me. Thanks Rich & Danny. F. Chamberlin
I came to R & D Art needing a banner created for EntraCard to use on my website Online sports articles and news over the net. I was blown away in how quick they were able to put something together and even more excited that it exceeded my expectations. Thanks for all you guys did. S. Drega
When I first started writing my own blog, I never guessed how much would really go into the entire process. Luckily I ran into Danny with R & D Art. He helped set up my blog and everything with such ease and precision, even showing me tips and tricks along the way. The money that I paid for this service was the best money I have spent and would do it over again.
With Danny and Rich, you never have to worry about bad customer service. Anytime I have needed anything, they are right there at my finger tips or on the other end of the phone line. Dedication is a thing you will find with R & D Art.
I have had so many comments about the appearance of Upstate SC Today and I refer them all to R & D Art.
“I am overjoyed with the increase in traffic to my website since I started working with R&D ART. The staff at R&D ART provided me with a website that is inviting, effective and easy to navigate while giving me the tools I need to be successful in this market. The experience, innovation, unprecedented customer service and support I constantly receive from R&D ART is second to none.”
My boss pushed me into taking a blogging class I must admit I had no intention of blogging, but you have to keep the boss happy. After realizing my business was going no where without a web site, I was referred to Danny & Rich. I warned them that computers and their language was foreign to me so they would have to be really patient.
They made the whole process really easy & economical for me. For the first time in my life I can call tech support (Danny & Rich) and not feel like a total idiot. The level of customer service is amazing. I will soon post my first article: yes I had no intention of blogging. The whole process was so easy and addicting. Check out my web site Oakridge Oregon Real Estate and you will see first hand what R & D Art created for me, it is a modern day piece of art. Thanks guys!!!!
