Plano, TX 75024
North Dallas Mortgage Loan Officer serving the entire Great State of Texas.
I have been a loan officer for 8yrs. A salesman all of my life, I wanted out of technology sales really bad. I joined a credit repair company to head up their IT dept. It was there that I became exposed to mortgage lending and felt that the consultative sales nature of mortgage lending was for me. Folks told me that the refi boom was over and that I was getting in at the wrong time.... boy were they wrong!! I have learned to network for referrals rather than rely on the phone to ring from yellow page ads. A lot of lenders have not cultivated that market and are suffering.
My knowledge of credit scoring has served me well in this industry. I have helped countless folks raise their score(at no charge) to get into a better loan program. The DallasLoanGuy's Free E-Book 'About Credit' <= this FREE book is a great tool for realtors and lenders alike. If your borrower, cannot qualify today, they soon will be able to raise their scores with this knowledge. (Note: While I do not condone someone trying to get legitimate derogatories off their reports.... I do feel strongly that EVERYONE deserves a fair and accurate reflection of their credit history in their reports)
I am married. My wife, Lori, is a nurse. Two kids, both boys, Ethan age 12 yrs and Evan age 7 yrs. They Keep me on my toes!!
I like to fish and hunt. Camping too. I don't have much time for that these days, but soon the boys will be old enough to go with me. I coach both boys in Baseball and we all enjoy watching the Rangers when we aren't playing ourselves.
I like networking. Just keeping up with old friends and making new ones. I love chatting about the business. I like to learn something new every day. So i welcome comments and suggestions. Even constructive criticism is met with a smile.
Although I do consider myself a professional, I am pretty laid back guy. Approachable and friendly.
