As Friday draws to a close, my mind is whirling around, not settling on any one thing. This entire day has been that way, from my morning yoga at home practice, to my early morning "wake up and breathe" walk. From lunch with a client/friend to our check up on the renovations of a duplex that will...

Are You a Lender or a Banker or a Broker? "So are you a broker or a lender?"  "Or a banker or a lender?"  "Or a broker/banker?"  Yes, yes, and yes! We get this question all the time, but I think it comes from a good place.  Naturally, everybody shopping for a home loan wants to get the best rates...
