Weekly Wrap - Your Mortgage Market Update     August 25-29, 2014          Farewell summertime!  While this weekend's Labor Day holiday marks the unofficial end of summer, it seems traders in the marketplace took an early vacation, if this week's market movements have been any indication.  It was...
I Guess I'm Coming to Florida          Being a mortage banker with a company that's licensed in many states across the country doesn't mean much to an individual loan officer.  If I want to do business in a specific state, my company needs to be licensed there, but I also need to do all of the in...

Mortgage Loan Denied?  Get a 2nd Opinion!          When you work in the mortgage business for a period of years, no matter who you are, you run into scenarios where borrowers come to you - perfectly fine borrowers,  more than deserving of a loan - that have been denied at some other lender for so...
I'm the best lender.  And the worst lender.          Over the years, I've received a lot of compliments on my mortgage business.  Thankfully, they've outnumbered the complaints by a lot.  Since entering the business in 2006, I've made it a point to constantly improve, evolve, adapt, and continue ...
