“My role here at MortgageDepot is that as a Loan Officer. Before joining the staff here thirteen years ago, I worked for another firm called Olympic Mortgage. I just happened to fall into the mortgage industry by chance. I was very young, and I intended to buy a used car, but I kept seeing open house signs in the vicinity where I was shopping, and on a whim, I also decided to attend the open house. Instead of the car, I purchased my first property!
This one purchase opened my eyes to a possible career in real estate. I’m excited about each workday as I was during my first real estate purchase. I don’t sell my clients rates. I try to be as versatile as possible and offer them an excellent product; I pride myself on being a savings expert for my clients. And my clients are extremely pleased with the service that I provide to them! They consistently make new business referrals, send thank you gifts and make phone calls thanking me, and they leave glowing reviews on my webpage regularly.
When the financial crisis of 2000-2006 happened, it was the result of insufficient income verifications for people seeking mortgages. The best thing to change in the mortgage industry has been the introduction of new mortgage programs offering flexibility to borrowers. If I could wish for one big thing, I’d like to see legislation that permits the hard-working young people designated as DACA, be afforded the privilege of homeownership.”
