This is a great post by my friend and colleague Gene. It is very true. When a big loan is being done (and in most cases it's a big loan for you) it pays to have someone right there with you educating you on the best way for you to borrow money. I'm not saying online lenders can't do it. Just be c...
Hello everyone: I hope you had a nice weekend! I was honored to be a volunteer judge at Sartori School last Friday. I can still remember every graduating senior who partipated.
