As a loan officer, one of the most important things about your career is your ability to deliver an on-time, under-budget, no-surprise closing for your clients. You may have never thought of it in those exact terms, but if you have any experience in this at all, you know what happens when the ball is dropped in the back room. Close late, and ugly, and you can forget repeat and referral business from the client and the realtors.
If your company can’t get the loans out the back door – you pay the ultimate price.
I’ve been doing this for over 17 years now – and the only way I would work in this business is if my loans are being disclosed, underwritten, processed, closed and funded from the local operations center that we’ve built. Everything is supervised and managed by a local management team. And they all report to me.
If you want to build and grow your mortgage business – yes, you have to do your part. But the company you work for owes you, your partners and your borrowers an excellent experience.
