I am a licensed mortgage consultant with over 10 years of experience residing in the Owings Mill, MD area. Over the past 10 years, I have seen and done just about all there is to see and do in the mortgage business. On my road here, I attended Woodlawn High School where I was quite the athlete if I do say so myself. My favorite sport was and is wrestling. As a wrestler in high school I broke records in my weight class that were good enough to buy me a full scholarship to Morgan State University, where I majored in Chemistry and minored in Physical Ed. After college, I worked in my degree field as a lab technician in the food and beverage industry, where I would hang my hat for the next 15 years. My chemist career came to a halt when i was laid off due to a major company restructuring.....I saw it coming but I wasn't afraid........
I was given enough of a severance to last 3mth and believe me, I used the entire three months. With no one knocking my door down in the food and beverage industry asking me to come work for them, I gave into my fear of tackling a sales position. I figured I was broke, and I had nothing more to loose, I was behind on everything possible, and owed everybody I knew money. As I said I had nothing more to loose.
I started working as a loan officer on September 2, 2000 and 90days to the tee, I made $12,000. Some of you mortgage professionals out there understand exactly what I was feeling on that day.....However, at the end of the day and when the smoked cleared, The mortgage industry fell into the abyss and I was out of a job yet again. I fiqured it was time for me to start working for myself....The rest as they say is history.
