I’ve come to realize I’m not in the mortgage business, I’m really in the business of building relationships with people. Relationship marketing, by far, is one of the best types of marketing activities I’ve implemented in my own business by attending and hosting educational events. But putting together power points and teaching classes isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Longtime leader in the Freedom Club and my dear friend, Suzanne Downs, has found epic success with relationship marketing without creating a single power point presentation. Want to know how?

On this episode of Loan Officer Freedom – the number one podcast for Loan Officers, thanks to you fine folks – Suzanne and I talk about how she shows appreciation for the people that send her business while creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere during her monthly mixers in order to generate even more business every single month.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How to coordinate a monthly mixer
  • Who to invite
  • Getting sponsors to offset the cost
  • How to strategically follow up with the attendees

On this episode of Loan Officer Freedom, the number one podcast for Loan Officer, I’m talking to my friend and a new leader in the Freedom Club, Chris Jameson. Chris is an expert when it comes to hard money loans, we all think we know what a hard money loan is, but what are they really? There are many misconceptions out there when it comes to these loans and I’ll admit I believed some of the myths about them too. Have you heard any of the following?

  • Hard money loans are only for people who have poor or bad credit.
  • Borrowers who use hard money loans don’t have any money for a down payment.
  • If a borrower uses a hard money loan, it’s because they don’t qualify for a conventional loan.

They’re all myths, and my buddy Chris is here to shed some light on what a hard money loan is and isn’t and the three reasons a borrower typically uses this loan for. Want to find out more? Listen in on today’s episode.
