After the economic crash of 2008/2009 many of us in the mortgage industry lost a lot, if not everything. Is that true for you? 

Rayce Robinson, one of the leaders in The Freedom Club, had that same experience. Not only was it trying on his finances, but it was also trying on his relationships.

So how is it that Rayce, who seemingly “lost it all” has been able to stand tall, rebuild, and find major success as a Mortgage Broker in Florida? On this episode of Loan Officer Freedom, the #1 podcast for loan officers, I’m talking to my very dear friend Rayce Robinson to hear and share his story. It’s a story that many of us can relate to and draw inspiration from. 

If you want to know how he was able to go from losing his home and investment properties; and be on the verge of switching industries completely to rebuilding his business, paying off his mortgage on his new home, and earning nearly $500,000 per year without working nights and weekends listen to this episode of Loan Officer Freedom.

Is it safe to say you’d like to increase your salary?

If you think the sale is done once the loan is closed and it’s time to find brand new leads again, you’re letting Quicken Loans win.

Quicken Loans’ philosophy has a lot to do with retaining clients, in fact, it’s been said that their average retention rate is 77% where the average loan officer’s retention rate is 22%.

You don’t need more leads!

Unless you started in the business yesterday you have more than enough business to help you source even more loans, all without having to find brand new leads. The secret is figuring out what you’re currently doing with the leads you already have.

On this episode of Loan Officer Freedom, the #1 podcast for loan officers, Mike and I are sharing exactly what you can do to get even more business from the leads you already have.

If you have referral partners, a past database, pre-approvals, etc. you already have the “leads” you need. Now, it’s just about the scripting and the follow up. When it comes to overall client retention, the average loan officer has a retention rate of 22%. But here’s the thing, with the right scripting and the right amount of follow up you can increase that amount by 300%! I know because I’ve seen it and my team does it all the time. Keep listening to find out how you can source even more business without getting more leads…and share with a loan officer friend.

If you’re busy, you don’t have a “busy” problem, you have a “lack of help” problem. Understanding the huge difference between those 2 issues is the difference between the “prosperous, yet free” loan officer and the “busy, restless, and discontent” loan officer.

This week, I’ve decided to replay one of our Loan Officer Freedom classics with my dear friend, and leader in the Freedom Club, Mr. Rayce Robinson. Rayce has transformed his business from being the sole loan officer to a Mortgage Broker with a small team. 

But why should you even consider hiring someone to help you? How do you take that first step in hiring? Who do you hire first? What is your responsibility and what is their responsibility now that they are on your team? We’ll go into all of that on this episode of Loan Officer Freedom.

Why should a real estate agent refer to you? If you don’t have at least 3 reasons you can list off immediately, you’re going to want to hear this…

We get agents to refer to us because we are the winning lottery ticket! Meaning, in a totally cool way, we add even more value to their lives. So how do we add even more value?

On this episode of Loan Officer Freedom, the #1 podcast for Loan Officers, my dear friend Mike Cardascia and I discuss the 29 value propositions we use which just happen to be the same value props you can (and should) share with real estate agents you’re currently working with and the agents you’d like to work with in the future.

When people think about doing business with you, why should they choose YOU? You are more than worthy and deserving, so package up that value and tie a pretty bow around it as you present these value propositions with your next referral partner.
