“My Office Makes Me Look Good”

“My Office Makes Me Look Good”



I do a lot of mortgages in a day, week, month and year. But without the supportive staff that I have there is no way I could accomplish the number of mortgages that I do. They make me look good to everyone that calls or comes in.


All of them have been with me for many years; the shortest tenure is 9 years. We all know what to expect from one another. No one is afraid to speak up when there is an issue and believe me when I tell you they are all willing to put me in my place.


This is an example of making me look good:




Thank you for meeting with us yesterday. We are fortunate to have found an extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful company.

Attached are the documents you requested for the rental property.

I know the feeling and echo the sentiment. I burned through, I dunno, 4 or 5 assistants before I found the perfect match. And I treat her like gold. My team members and support systems are also well selected. Choose the right people, and they can make me look 100 times better than I know I have any right to be.
