Inspired by a blogger, TALK TO A REAL PERSON !

Mortgage and Lending with American National Bank & Trust NMLS #268590

A little while back, I was reading another blogger's post and they were comparing getting information online from someone vs. having a face to face contact with the source.   I was intrigued by the way they concluded it.   Their last sentence was "I prefer to talk to a real person".

I went about my activities that day but couldn't get that thought, "talk to a real person" out of my head.   As I was completing my daily tasks, I began to take note of the vast array of information that is put in front of us every day. From TV to billboards, Internet to wall posters, business cards to wrapped vehicles; it's everywhere around us 24 hours a day.   Information overload.

And then I thought about my profession as a Mortgage Loan Originator.   Folks, this is no time to play around.   You are making the biggest financial decision of your life, are you going to depend on some inanimate display ?

I'm sorry, that doesn't work for me.   Every day, we hear about scams on the Internet taking unsuspecting people for thousands of dollars.   We see ads every day where it says "you can afford this for only so much a month".   How do they know ?   Did you give them your financial records to review ?

Please don't get taken.   Be smarter than that.   When you are making your mortgage loan decisions and obligating yourself for untold amounts of money and responsibilities, do the right thing and protect yourself.

If you are thinking about doing a mortgage or refinancing your home, seek out someone like myself to help you make the right decisions that fit your individual and unique situation.   Have a one on one discussion with a professional that you can trust.   Like me, be . . . . .

Good morning again Deanna. I can't imagine anyone not preferring to talk to a real person, face to face. Nice post.

Good morning Deanna. Even though I do mortgages in eight states, it is vital for me to speak to each prospective client, in person is wonderful, but out of the area things like Skype help a lot.

Yes, for stuff like this, you need to speak with a real person.  The blog post can be the inspiration for someone to call.
