About ten years ago, I asked the selling agent at a settlement on one of my listings how he found such a GREAT interest rate for his client.  He passed me a business card for Chris Washburn at FNMC, a division of National City Mortgage Company (NCMC).  When I called Chris a few days later, he imm...

Okay, I've been doing this ActiveRain thing for several months, now, and I've developed some routines.  Let's share, because I could probably learn from YOUR ideas, and somebody might like mine.  What do you think?  Wanna play?  I'll start with Associates and My Home: Associates - I organized my ...
