I am deeply thankful for all who read and responded to my post a couple days ago!
One of the MANY reasons to love AR... the great community and wealth of knowledge here is second to none! With that said I figured it a bit easier to try to address some of the questions here instead of replying to 40-50 comments individually.
1) My break - It was nothing to do with AR or anything of the sort it was simply due to lack of time and too much change in our industry. between the foolishness of TRID (which benefits no one) and a complete overhaul to our operating system to better manage our business as well as ensure compliance with all the new laws it has been a daunting task but something that had to be done.
2) Changes - in addition to the above also made the decision to bring the entire lending/banking process in house and that was also a much bigger task than I had expected. The results are great the process was not lol
3) Trying to make the time to make this/AR a more regular thing again - I have made a conscious decision to get back to a much more regular posting and interaction here in AR. I am still buried but starting to see the light at end of tunnel and want to get back to AR for the friendships as well as the rest of the benefits of the community
Too much to list in one post but glad to be back and THANK YOU to all who responded to the call of showing love! I will start posting about rates and markets again soon!
