“The lenders I work with are great. They get my loans done, customers love them and I really only have one complaint…
I wish they would blog.“
I have heard the above statement more than once from a Realtor – and usually I just smile, shrug and say something like “yeah, that is weird… just let me know if you ever need a guest post!”
The truth is that for some reason, being a loan officer and blogging seem to be a combination that only a few people have managed to balance, no matter what geographic market they work in. And of the loan officers that do end up writing about mortgage stuff, many of them don’t write enough about <insert your favorite mortgage-related technical topic> and just end up writing about funny stories that have happened to them.
I know, I probably fall into that camp – but sometimes writing about mortgages is kind of, well… boring.
So I thought I would let you know who the perfect loan officer blogger is for anyone who needs technical-mortgage-related information downloaded daily into their brain… only he isn’t a loan officer – he is the Director of Capital Markets at RPM Mortgage and his name is Rob Chrisman.
Rob simply provides the best daily commentary on what is going on in the mortgage market that there is. He has been helping me sound educated for about a year and a half just by adding me to his email list and he was probably the secret-behind-the-curtain for many loan officers long before I heard about him.
So if you can’t get your loan officer to talk technical to you… now you can get your daily dose of mortgage expert from the best in the business.
Shhh, don’t tell anyone – let’s keep this little secret to ourselves so other people think we are smart.
