Not sure if I am considered a Newbie....

By
Mortgage and Lending with Peoples Home Loans NMLS #630694

Hello active rain members,

I am fairly new to this whole concept of blogging. I actually joined AR in February '08 but just started my profile,..... made one post at that time, and that was about it.

Recently, I have been exploring the site and reading some of the Great Posts ( Blogs ) from many of you. WOW!

I have a lot to learn about using the site correctly and am trying to get up to speed. I look at other members profiles and I am amazed at all of the associations, associates, etc., etc.,.....

Well anyway,  my name is Jerry Santoro, I live in Middletown, NJ and currently I am a Mortgage Planning Specialist with HFG, parent company of New Jersey Home Funding Group. My office is located in Morganville,NJ right in the center of the State. I have been originating loans since 1994 and have been with NJHFG since 2002. We have an office in Henderson,NV also. I do have the ability to originate loans across the country and have worked with many First Time Home Buyers helping them achieve the "American Dream".

I'll stop here since I don't want to get long winded and ramble. So hello to all. Please feel free to contact me any time with questions, comments, or advice. I look forward to meeting many of you and becoming an "Active Member" of AR!

Hello Jerry, welcome to ActiveRain.  It is a great place to explore and learn (when you have the chance).  Ideally, if you spend at least an hour a day on the Rain, you will gain some great knowledge and insight into our business of selling real estate.  Good luck to you and have fun learning and exploring!

Jerry,  welcome to the group.  Guess my situation is similar to yours.  I joined awhile ago, but took my time getting comfortable with the format of blogging.  Yesterday I screwed up my third blog so today I sent two.  Guess if you don't succeed at first try again.  www.activerain.com/blogs/lohrer

Have fun.  See you around.

Jerry-- congratulations on your decision to become active in the rain. I looked the other day and less than 10% of the members are truly engaged.  Their loss.
