I am always motivated by the Statue of Liberty.  I aspire to be a Utah Loan Officer who invites anyone from any background, any economical plight, and any type of disability into my office.  Its an opportunity to begin a relationship.  Its an opportunity to learn how the rich live.  And how the poor live.  And how people from other cultures live.  Its a place to listen to someone's story and build an exchange of information.  Its an opportunity to enrich my life and the other person's life.  Oh, did I forget?  Yes, its also a place to Originate a Loan. 

Statue of Liberty

Recently I had an interesting loan prospect from someone who forgot to tell me he had a FORECLOSURE and an IRS JUDGMENT for $40K.  His credit rating, surprisingly enough, was decent.  I wanted to give him better news about loan possibilities than I could.  Anyone have any ideas????  

The very next evening, at a dinner party,  a good friend of mine asked if I had any avenues for a Super Jumbo Construction Loan on a spec house.   As the discussion continued, I realized it was maybe possible, but certainly with more challenges than meets the eye.  I'd like to hear of anyone who has access to 4-5 million dollar loans for constructing a spec home.

I have met the most amazing people.  Every loan application I take, has a story behind it.  And I have never taken a loan application from someone who was just "boring" or "regular."  Its an interesting road we walk down, isn't it? 

I market, I blog, I stay visible, I blog, I volunteer, I blog, I build on relationships,  I blog, I truly believe in keeping a WELCOMING OPEN DOOR POLICY to anyone in my circle of influence. .

Oh did I mention I BLOG?   FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO AREN'T KEEPING YOUR DOOR OPEN TO SERIOUS BLOGGING ADVANTAGES, here's my recent experience.  I'm one of those who blogged but was skeptical, until I was at my favorite look-it-up site  www.google.com one day last week searching for Park City Business Women's Network, and Lo and Behold, there I was listed in the first position, www.city-data.com/profiles/2234. Then I was curious, and searched for "Park City Utah Mortgages" and was listed at the bottom of the first page, www.activerain.com/koko 

So market, stay open to new opportunities, Seriously Blog and let me know what you do with the really tough loans that come your way!
