“Do You Ever Really Know?”

“Do You Ever Really Know?”

 

 

I ask clients all the time, why they do business with me compared to a bank or credit union? Believe me; over the years I have gotten answers I would not have imagined:

 

“You sold me a house a few years ago”

 

“You’re the only one that returned my call”

 

“I drive by your sign all the time”

 

“So and so referred me”

 

All are great, but I don’t learn as much from these answers as I do when I have the opportunity to ask folks that choose to go elsewhere.

 

Over the years when I ask this question to those that have decided to do business somewhere else, I have received answers such as:

 

“Banks have better rates than a mortgage broker”

 

“Mortgage brokers caused the housing crisis”

 

“You would be charging points and my bank doesn’t”

 

“I’ll get a mortgage from my bank in a few days”

 

Do you know what all of this means? There are clients that would deal with me because I am not a bank and there are many clients that would never go to a bank for mortgage. There is lots of business to go around and if you do a good job with your clients they will come back year after year and refer their friends, families and co-workers.

 

Who do you know that needs my help?
