Roller Coaster Rides

Industry Observer

This last week has been just that, a roller coaster ride.  The bank that backs our company quit funding loans on Thursday.  Yes, I had two loans at docs and had to start over.  But, I learned what I am made of.  I will go to bat for my clients and we are working out options for both my clients. 

 I really appreciate the people I work with.  I wanted some kind of answers for my clients before I called them.  The office had a meeting to see where we were going.  While I was in that meeting, my client called.  The first thing he said was, "Take a deep breath."  I know my clients well enough that they knew I would be upset for them.  They are now staying with friends because the sold their house and everything they own is in two 14 foot U-Haul trucks.  They know I can get the job done and we are waiting for conditions to be reviewed.

Through all the ups and downs, I think it is most important to communicate with your clients and listen to their needs.  The calmer you are able to stay, the calmer your clients are.

Here's to picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and coming back stronger than ever!!!
