I was reminded of something on a long conversation I had with a lady yesterday and yet again after reading a recent post by David Podgursky. I spend a large part of my life working....I do Mortgages.
Let me explain further. There are only so many hours in a day, only so many days in a week, and only so many weeks in a year. Yet, a lot of us spend a large amount of those hours, days, & weeks doing what we feel passionate about doing...our chosen occupation. Sometimes, I forget to explain what I do and why I do it.
I've pointed out before that I hardly knew what a Mortgage encompassed before entering this industry 6+ years ago. Then, I caught the bug. I became enamored with everything I could help with in other's lives, and there was a monetary benefit and intrinsic something you can't put a label on, if I did it well. That was appealing, still is, always will be. When I came to Allentown almost 8 years ago, I would of never imagined fancying myself on being a financial guy.
After garnering a bit of knowledge & experience in this industry, I was hungry for more. So what is it that I do exactly?
If you are looking to purchase a home or Commercial Property in Pennsylvania, I am here.
If you want to refinance a home or Commercial Property in Pennsylvania, I am here as well.
If you have questions about the mortgage process, I'm a phone call, email, or I even come to you....even though I'm direction-less:-)
Yet, before I ask for business from anyone out there in Cyber-land, I request a couple of things. I request I earn your trust and you acknowledge my passion for what I do. The reason I request that is because that is what I look for when doing business with anyone in any facet of life. I could sit here and type out the numerous products and programs I have access to for every kind of borrower under the sun...but I gotta be honest, my product list is as extensive as pretty much anybody else's. The difference in the end isn't necessarily the presentation, nor the expectation, but the demonstration and result.
That is what I do.
Why I do it is simple. It has become my passion. I love rasslin & writing, but they are hobbies in the face of an Industry I've grown to have an Extreme Passion about. I like being a financial detective, I adore helping somebody become a homeowner or getting them out of a financial jam. I love doing my part in the Real Estate Industry in changing it, evolving it, & helping others grow into it and with it. I feel it my duty, one I don't mind doing at all.
This forum allows us all to reach out to the public and also allows the public to touch back. Real Estate doesn't have to be some great big mystery or scandal, it very well can be just another aspect of life made easier...if you find the right people to surround you.
That is why I do it.
