realtors: Now that Astronaut Scott Kelly is back home, he better buy one NOW ! - 03/02/16 02:12 AM
Have you not been amazed by the ongoing exploits of American Astronaut Scott Kelly ?   We have all seen his unbelievable photos from orbit showing everything from lightning storms, to the Aurora Borealis to his comical bits on late night TV.   He has been a scientist, a pioneer and an inspiration to people all over the world.   It has been an amazing journey for sure.
After being isolated from the earth for a year, some things have surely changed for Scott Kelly though.   As soon as he landed, procedures began to test the reaction of his human body … (11 comments)

realtors: Half a million in the bank and a 500 credit score, How can that be ? - 02/29/16 10:18 AM
Does this not sound impossible or at least ridiculous ?   People are getting BAD  advice out there and every time I come across someone like this, it scares me.   I don't want to see anyone in financial hardship but when you're no where close; why would your credit score by so low ?   BAD  advice !
I work with people who are not financial scholars.   I work with ordinary folks, like me; but some of this is just wrong.   Another bank, which shall remain nameless, but it's a big one; got this person in such a deep … (3 comments)

realtors: Today is BOAT SHOW day in Roanoke, Virginia. Come by our booth - 02/26/16 12:57 AM
It is Saturday, February 27th and it's the day of the annual Southwest Virginia Boat Show in Roanoke, Virginia at the Berglund Center.   It is an annual event because when spring hits, everybody wishes they could be out on the water cruising along with the wind blowing through their hair.   That's right, we can all dream of a fun day off but sometimes you need to have the right vessel to make that dream come true.
Of course, a new boat doesn't do you much good without a matching body of water to insert it into.   Around here, there's … (4 comments)

realtors: It was my birthday but my husband was the star of the show ! - 02/25/16 02:09 PM
I was born on February 24th so yesterday was my birthday.   I intended to have a good day because I deserve to feel better about myself and my life.   Some people may not understand that seemingly self centered comment but those who have read my previous blogs will understand.
Over last weekend, I marked the one year anniversary of my mother's passing.   I still catch myself reaching for the phone when I have a thought that I would like to share with her or want to get her wise consultation on a subject.   Mom and I were very … (7 comments)

realtors: Does Your Marketing and Writing a Blog Really Work? You Bet It Does ! - 02/24/16 06:30 AM
The other day, I got a phone call from a very nice woman.   She asked me, "Do you do manufactured home loans?"   "I certainly do", I said.   She then asked me a number of other questions about manufactured home mortgage loans.   She confirmed she was needing financing for a double wide home.
I asked a number of general questions to determine whether this particular home fit program guidelines.   I also asked routine questions about her and about her spouse and their income situation.   With these questions asked, I was able to narrow down her mortgage loan … (2 comments)

realtors: Woooo Hoooo, It's my BIRTHDAY and I'm going to be celebrating it today - 02/23/16 08:16 AM
You know, in life, we all have to overcome hurdles and sometimes feel happy or sad; depending on the particular event we are confronted with.   Well, today is February 24th and it's my birthday.   I may be considered one year older but in some ways, it seems only a short time since the last one.
Of course, in some ways it also seems like this year has dragged along for decades.   This year has seen great triumphs and terrific heartaches.   I lost my mother and had to deal with sadness and afterward the responsibility of handling her estate … (4 comments)

realtors: Inspired by a blogger, TALK TO A REAL PERSON ! - 02/22/16 03:52 PM
A little while back, I was reading another blogger's post and they were comparing getting information online from someone vs. having a face to face contact with the source.   I was intrigued by the way they concluded it.   Their last sentence was "I prefer to talk to a real person".
I went about my activities that day but couldn't get that thought, "talk to a real person" out of my head.   As I was completing my daily tasks, I began to take note of the vast array of information that is put in front of us every day. From … (6 comments)

As I write this; someone, somewhere in the state of Virginia is looking for a local mortgage lender.   At the same time; someone, somewhere in the state of Virginia is preparing to arrange for a home loan.   In either case, I hope they find me.   It's not because I'm at a loss for business, I've got my share.   It's because I want everyone in Virginia to get the best loan for their needs.

realtors: It's been a year and I still can't believe she's gone. I love you, Mom - 02/20/16 03:36 PM
Today, February 20th of 2016 makes one year since I lost my Mom.   I started my day unable to sleep.   As the sun began to rise, I sat and cried as I thought about the day about to dawn before me.   As the house illuminated with the new day's sun, I thought I would do a FaceBook post to remember and honor my mother.   I had a picture in mind I wanted to use.
As I began to search my computer files to find that one particular photo, I began to dry my tears as I realized what … (6 comments)

Last night, the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce had it's monthly Business After Hours.   These events are always quite popular and usually have a good turnout of local business people.   It is a fabulous way to meet and greet people in like occupations as well as to introduce yourself to some of the unique vendors in the Smith Mountain Lake community.

realtors: As I'm starting my new week, I'm asking for my Realtors' opinions - 01/17/16 10:38 AM
As I begin the new week with a national holiday and a day off from the bank, I am pondering a pattern I have noted lately here at Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia.   In order to understand my local marketplace, I often throw out questions to my Realtors to help me.
Though the bank is officially closed Monday, I will be making contact with a number of local Realtors to pose this question to them:
 
Does it seem to you that more of your clients are either
"cash buyers" or "already have a lender" on board
before they come to you to tour … (11 comments)

realtors: Just today, I Saw A House Built In A Single Day, . . . . Well, Almost - 01/14/16 07:27 AM
In addition to doing permanent mortgages, I also do lot loans and construction loans.   In Franklin County, we have two very good modular home manufacturers.   I have been working a number of loans lately on modular homes and today, my managers and I were invited to watch as a home was delivered to the property and set on the basement foundation.
As a result, I had the pleasure today of seeing a house built in a single day, well almost.   Of course a modular home is actually built in the factory however, it was quite interesting today watching its … (11 comments)
