My Top 6 Posts - Gene Mundt, Mortgage Lender       
     Now that I've been blogging for well over a handful of years, I have a real "library" of articles and topics I've addressed ...  
     During this time I've also had a chance to analyze just which of those topics my followers have thought they gained the most from ... and those posts they found most interesting.
     I've been happy to discover that my readers respond in largest numbers to posts that are educational in nature. Why?  I see informing and educating clients/readers (and my referral partners) as one of … (42 comments)

blogging: I'm Looking For a Few Good ... Questions?? - 03/07/13 07:40 AM
I'm Looking For a Few Good ...  Questions??
     Business has gotten ... busier.  That's a good thing.  I mean, who doesn't want to be busy?  Or even busi-er in the future?

     But there are a few small negatives to being busier too.  Like, I'm finding that I just don't have the same amount of time to scour the internet for interesting and informative real estate industry-relevant news as I used to.  

    The outcome of this has been that I'm not finding the inspiration for my mortgage blog as … (74 comments)

blogging: "I Believe ... I Believe ... I Believe". The Lesson Real Estate Industry Professionals Can Learn From Hollywood. - 11/16/10 12:27 PM
Ever notice how a business or business office can have a tangible personality or "mood" within it?  I've found that to be true ... and that it's fairly easy to pick-up on that mood and/or personality soon after entering it too.  Some places just seem to have an upbeat atmosphere or vibe to themselves ... while others definitely do not.         
I visited some of my referral-partner offices the other day.  When I entered one office, I could read the "mood" instantly, and it wasn't real good.  There was definitely tension in the air.  Seemed I had stepped into a rather heated "water cooler" talk taking … (12 comments)

blogging: Celebrating 100,000 Points In the Rain! A Shower of Fun! - 06/29/10 07:00 AM

     Today I am celebrating a milestone.  I have earned over 100,000 points here on ActiveRain writing as a representative of my business and services through Chicago Bancorp ... and promoter of my industry and geographical area!
     When I first started out here on the Rain, I thought those members with this number of points must be superhuman.  I just couldn't imagine having that much to offer or say ... or posting and being rewarded with those types of numbers.
     The possibility of other Rainmakers writing me back and being able to establish and grow the remarkable … (25 comments)

blogging: Not Only Can You Find New Friends and Contacts on ActiveRain, but you can find old friends and renew acquaintances too! - 09/18/09 03:54 AM
     As many do on AR, I read the articles and comments submitted here on a regular basis throughout the day as I find the time.  I consider it part of my "continuing education".  One I look forward to greatly.
     One of the many things that I have learned since I joined AR, is that I can gain great new friends from across the nation ... people I never would have met and established a relationship with otherwise, if not for AR and my participation within it.  I relish these new contacts and suspect I am not alone in … (7 comments)

blogging: What You Hear Ain't Always the Full Story! - 08/05/09 12:09 PM

Sometimes you find pearls of wisdom when you least expect it ...
     Yesterday's blog on ActiveRain by Dan Pena titled  "Why do we need Reverse Mortgages?" was that kind of find. 
       My mind had barely digested Dan's powerful blog when ... what do I find in my mail?  The latest ConsumerReports magazine (Sept. 2009) with a lengthy article concerning Dan's very topic ... Reverse Mortgages. 
      The CR magazine article was of quite a different tone than Dan's blog.  The sub-title read a little like something you'd find in The Enquirer.  "The next financial fiasco??  It could be reverse mortgages."   … (47 comments)

blogging: Getting a Thorough Education - Attending the University of ActiveRain! - 04/08/09 10:51 AM
Ever since joining ActiveRain, I've been amazed at the amount of great information and exciting content there is to read, enjoy, and learn from within it.  It truly has become an online university which I attend daily.
The number of many and varied professionals that take the time to write and share their ideas and innovations is endless.  At any given time I can cherry-pick my "classes" for the day from a plethora of topics.  I can pick-up tips on networking, relating to my customers better, new lending programs, referral techniques, technological wizardry, and much much more.  I had obviously hoped that I would benefit … (41 comments)

blogging: Seeing the Potential in Blogging - 03/20/09 04:34 AM

I'll admit it, I've been in the real estate industry for 30 years now.  I was not raised during a time where the technology was so advanced.  During my high school years, typing class utilized the state-of-the- art "selectric" typewriter.  We thought that was cutting-edge.  Because I've also always had the benefit of a wife that could type like lightening, my typing speed has never been top-notch or something to brag about.  I relied on her skills for the big things ... and slow and steady wins the race during my efforts.
I'll also admit, that having two sons has brought me … (2 comments)
