As we have been thru inspection, had loan comittment, arranged our walk thru and closing times/place....we get a phone call that is left on voice Mail: "I am the loan officer or your Buyer, Jack Smith and wanted to introduce myself and discuss the details of the transaction.
IF you were the loan officer... i would know it...you are not...and never were. Weeks ago callling about a rate...no application....no home chosen at that point, would not make you a loan officer for this transaction.
Is this a new way to "Farm business" for lenders and hope that the agent is not bright enough to know who the lender is for the transaction ?n Is is a waste of time...I sure hope so ,...at what clever manager/sales director's direction are these calls made ?
The lender is national...the call was not local....and the loan won't be serviced by this voice on the phone for this or any transaction we do. If people industry wide want to improve their image....this is not the way we suggest they do it. Is this an act punishable by any regulatory agency ? Impersonating a loan officer for a transaction you are not involved in as a lender ? It should be in our opinion.
We do know a Realtor who was making a listing presentation and claimed to have listed many homes in the area. Our Not yet but eventual Seller, called her on it and said no...she knew who listed that house and it was not that Realtor...."Well I could have if I got the listing," the Realtor snapped.
If we are to be known as an industry of professionals....let's use some common sense...let's be honest....and show the public what professionalism really is.
