One of our own QUOTED on BLOOMBERG! Congrats to Tom Burris!

Mortgage and Lending with Funky Quail Vintage

Well, he is an ACTIVE RAINER, an Evil Mortgage Genius, and a Cowboys Fan, but now he is also a "Guru of Wall st". 



Congrats to TOM BURRIS!  You do not JUST get the GOLD STAR, as I am also bestowing upon you the "BLUE STAR"!

Tom was quoted in this article on Bloomberg.Com by Brian Louis talking about the rising interest rates!

You can access the article by clicking HERE!

Tom said: 

"If people hear that rates are going up, I think they hesitate a little bit," said Tom Burris, a mortgage banker at Supreme Lending in Dallas. "After a while the reality sets in that 5.5 is much better than 8 percent that we had ten years ago. It's a good rate, it's a fair rate."

This is not only great notoriety for Tom personally, but also a testament to his experience,knowledge, willingness to learn, and his active participation on Active Rain!   Whenever someone is featured, interviewed or contributes information on a National Scale, we need to congratulate them and embrace this within our community!

Hey Bucky!

Thanks for spreading the word on our man Tom. It's representation like Tom's that makes us all look good.

I'd give you a star Tom, but that would be redundant. How 'bout a brew...

Darin, Don't worry, Tom has made plenty from my referrals... however, I'm not in Dallas anymore and people like to work local, usually.
