I was honored when Jeff Belonger asked me to write this review. This is the first time I've written the Week in Review and I spent most all of last week thinking about what I would use as the theme. I also have seen so many different excellent mortgage posts from so many different and excellent loan officers. Hey guys, we have some great talent here!
So what makes a great loan officer, great? Is it product knowledge? How about salesmanship? Negotiating abilities? Communications skills? Financial know how? Legal and contractual IQ?
You know the answer - it's a combination of all of these ingredients and more.
For my Mortgage Week in Review I chose to highlight the best of the best in each of these ingredients.
With the holiday season upon us, and my underlying theme of ingredients, my theme for this post became obvious.
Michael Chiarello and I have a little history together so I chose his recipe to feature.
I've linked his picture to the recipe on FoodNetwork.
Nothing says Happy Holidays like a great Cioppino, and a good bottle of spicy Zin or Sangiovese!
For a Great Cioppino, gather the following...
The Dry Spices
All in all there is nothing like a great Cioppino to help celebrate the holidays.
NOTE: I read every single post written by a Loan Officer or Mortgage Company over the last week. Every single one! It was the first time I had done this. I was surprised at how many posts were cut and paste hacks, or reposted over and over again in hopes of Search Engine Rankings. If I found your first post wonderful and enlightening, it was eliminated when I saw it reposted again with just a few keywords changed.
What I did learn was that it was so easy to make the Mortgage Week in Review. All you have to do is write compelling original material. Do that and do that once.
Enjoy the Cioppino and Happy Holidays!
