New to Active Rain

By
Mortgage and Lending with Luxury Mortgage Corp

Hi All, I am new to blogging all together and would appreciate some feedback! I love the Active Rain platform and wanted to provide some background on myself as a starting point. I have been in real estate, home renovations, and financing for over 15 years. I started as a Realtor with Coldwell Banker in 1994, and at the same time bought, sold and renovated 5 homes. In 2000 I was invited to become a Mortgage Advisor and Mortgage Financing Trainer for the Coldwell Banker Real Estate Regional Headquarters. In 2006 I accepted an opportunity with Wells Fargo and the Houlihan Lawrence Real Estate Company. In 2009 after extensive research to find the lender with the best service record, accepted a Senior Loan Officer position with Mortgage Master, Inc. Mortgage Master has a unique platform as a direct lender, a mortgage banker and a mortgage broker. This combination assures borrowers the guaranteed lowest rates and the advantage of a wide range of loan options, Mortgage Master, Inc is the #1 privately held lender in the country with in-house, local processing.

Hi Kai, welcome to ActiveRain. What a ride youjust signed on to. As you get more acclimated to this platform and more comfortable, you'll find the niche you seek to get yourself better exposure, which ends up being more useful to your business.

You might want to take a look at some of the posts by other Mortgage professionals to see what works. There are several here that have made AR work to their business. And if it appears to be frustrating, post a post of frustration and watch the AR membership immediately come to help you.

Here on AR we're here to assist our business and along the way we help our friends as well.

Welcome
