Helping You to Become a Better Real Estate Agent

I want to help you to be a better you - becoming a better Real Estate Agent!

Instead of complaining about the countless episodes I experience, yes, episodes, because every time I experience an event with a Real Estate Agent who hasn’t honed in on their craft, it simply is part of the greater picture or series, that of a Real Estate Agent running without clarity.

Being a Real Estate Agent is the greatest career one could ever hold, in my opinion. However, don’t think it’s easy, thinking all we do is stroll customers around to look at 3 homes and then they choose one to buy, as HGTV swears by. Too funny! If only it were that easy.

I discuss laying your foundation as a Real Estate Agent right through to enjoying being a Real Estate Agent.

Mortgage Overlays are an important topic for real estate professionals to know about. This article posted by +Luke Skar from +Inlanta Mortgage is the best post I've ever read on the subject. It's a quick easy read on an interesting topic. Check it out!
What are Mortgage Overlays? Lender Guidelines Explained!
Specific rules a lender follows ABOVE the published guidelines

Today we are giving you a chance to peek behind the curtain of the mortgage world and get an idea of what happens at individual banks and mortgage companies in the form of mortgage overlays.

People often don’t understand why certain lenders will make additional rules to obtain a mortgage with them above and beyond the requirements set by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, VA, or even USDA. We call these rules overlays.

Mortgage overlays are nothing new to our industry, but they have gotten much more popular as lenders have become more conservative when they make lending decisions in today’s challenged real estate market.

Learn more about lender's mortgage overlays from my latest post!
