#TwoforTuesday – NAMB National review and my why today!! Loved the show, the National NAMB show is definitely the one to go too! 5 Stars NAMB! Great opening ceremony, great speaking events from various industry leaders and technology companies, and very classy wrap up event with special guests Boyz 2 Men!
#TakeAShot for an #EchoDot campaign was great! We pulled a ton of people over to the booth to take a basketball shot, and if they made two in a row they won! Super awesome to be a guest on Mortgage News Network, and such a great time seeing old colleagues and current, past and future clients! I had several people recognize me from my silly videos and tell me they watch me on TV all the time. LOL!!
From my take, I am super glad to be positioned with a company poised for success as our product mix features so many niche programs for our mortgage broker partners! NON-AGENCY and NICHE programs were the talk of the town BIG TIME! And I can’t wait to be reaching out to all the new connections this week from the show! Everything I do has always centered around my WHY – And it’s the #Twins bday today, happy birthday #Noah and #Luke!
If you want to see some of the great programs that you can get on point with BLUEPOINT MORTGAGE – CLICK HERE! This show was the first show for #BluePointMtg and was a great success!

#ThursdaysThoughts – We’re back! That’s right #MortgageBrokers are BACK!! Today marks November 1st, a day in history when there WILL be ton’s of LO’s and Broker’s filing for their MU4/MU2! Yep, filing to open their own mortgage brokerage shop or filing to be state licensed instead of federally licensed. A WAVE is about to hit and we’ve been seeing all year! More and more people are going back to brokering!
Why today? Well if you filed prior to November 1st, you had to still “re-new” this year yet again. So many around August decided to wait till today to make it worth while and not have to pay NMLS two times in one year. If you pay the NMLS for your filing today or after you are set for the year and the next time you have to re-new is next year. In the mortgage world, there is CE (continued education) of 8 hours and a fee that’s paid to the National Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) once a year to hold a license to do mortgage loans.
So what’s the big deal? Well as I said in the video, more and more people are filing to start their own small business (mortgage brokerage) or coming over to the mortgage broker side from the retail banks. As rates are rising banks are bleeding to gain market share, and overall in growth numbers, the only real outlet that has lead growth this year is mortgage brokers. Retail is down in numbers, and more than likely will stay down. Rates are higher on retail due to overhead from big buildings, fat CEO pay grades, and the need for layered departments within a big corporation. Their profit margin is thinner this year with rates rising, and many have even started to change compensation structures to their loan officers. That and various other indicators are a deal killer with good sales people, and more and more are seeing the light with wholesale yet again. There’s more control, more options and more success being seen as the small independent mortgage broker again. Want to know more about starting a brokerage or the steps for licensing? Click here – And pick your state.
And this time, it’s better than 2008, the wholesale relationships are stronger to support these small businesses of America, brokering loans is sought after even in real estate now. And I happen to be one of the various options independent mortgage brokers can partner with to help more clients. #GetOnPoint with #BluePointMtg and partner with a true wholesale partner to help you close more loans!

#WeekendCalltoAction – Dual Markets exist in today’s market place all across the US. Are you helping the situation? By talking about the opportunity to sell at top dollar and MOVE UP and buy with a good bang for the buck is what this is all about. You see more and more “empty nesters” are “down-sizing” for a condo in their favorite metropolitan area. Leaving a move UP opportunity for those previous 1st time home buyers to sell and buy more of home for their growing families.
To sell quick at top dollar with multiple offers on the table is what 1st time home buyer homes have been experiencing this year. That’s why there’s a shortage of those “entry level homes” but the higher end homes inventory stays steady. There’s more 400k+ listing across the US than there are 125k is what I see. While every geographical market is different, this is a sales angle that presents itself.
@BluePointMtg we can help the growing entrepreneur use Bank Statement loans to move up into a new home that is more feasible than their 1st home. And empty nester’s looking to downsize end up placing a large amount of cash down on a new purchase of a home and can do a REVERSE mortgage leaving them with no mortgage payment as they retire and settle in on the last home they will own. This is just one idea, but the opportunity is endless. And we have the #Niche products to help you grow your pipeline and help more loans close. A good LO whom is hungry for business could use this angle to certainly stimulate their own market place. Assuming their talking about it. (Find the right Agent and you could “marry the two transactions”)

#MondaysMotivation – Guidelines and Marketing are the two things you, as an LO, must master in order to be successful! While guidelines change all the time, so do marketing trends and what works. You need to be “up to date” on these to be a successful LO in Today’s environment! All this week, I go over commonly asked guidelines and a talk about how it coincides with marketing.
On FRIDAY Aug 31st, 2018 @ 10 am EST, I will put on a webinar that’s FREE for all! I am going to cover a part of #TheBluePrint that I’ve been teaching Broker’s/LO’s for years to expand their business. It’s all about whom to reach out too when through the year to help you expand your rolodex of referral partners. Someone probably told you to network with RE Agents, but whom else could you be gaining business from and when throughout the year should you be reaching out? These are all things I cover on Friday’s Webinar.
FRIDAY AUGUST 31st, 2018 @ 10 am EST is the time for the webinar! Want to know more about using seasons and trends to help you build your business? SIGN UP HERE!
#WeekendCalltoAction – Start networking with different “pillar partners” for referrals right about now! The season’s are changing again and as we go into September certain referral partners are in the office and hot to network with. There’s a rhyme and a reason to all this. And what I’ve been doing for years is helping mortgage Broker’s and LO’s learn to segment at various times of the year to gain referrals many different people. Not just RE Agents.
I detail the who on which pillar partner is in the office now and ripe to gain referrals from in today’s video! Next week I’m doing a free for all webinar to go over the whole thing again. I did it last year about this time and was a hit, so I’m going to do it again. But this time I have more information for you LO’s looking to use Trends, seasons and various referral partners to build your business.
All next week I will promote the webinar, so hopefully you’ll see it again. 🙂 But if you want to be on the early bird sign up for the webinar CLICK HERE!

I am so thankful as I look back now and develop what I think will be the BEST AE training there is, that I had the opportunity to work for some big names. Some companies have trainings that are stellar, and I had the privilege to go through some awesome one’s in my career. Such as QuickenLoans leadership program, and UWM’s training. I’ve made my own several years ago and have been adding, creating and developing content since. As I help not only source new business, but grow a national footprint for a wholesale lender now, I am so pumped and thankful for the experiences I’ve had.
While other lenders might be “restructuring” in some way, we’re growing. And doing all the right things to help our partners business thrive. We are BRAWL friendly, we give Broker’s options with products, to Lender paid comp options not often seen. I ♥ the unique opportunity we have, and we are so ground floor. THE OPPORTUNITY IS NOW – IF you’re an AE and not happy with where you’re at – Reach out to me HERE!
The MUSIC is all around you, all you need to do is SUBMIT! **AUGUST RUSH!
#WeekendCalltoAction – Delayed financing exception needed for cash out to do improvements on a new home!? – Well if your client bought a home CASH in the last 6 months and wants to pull cash out – now’s the time! My advice is to call all the title reps and agents you’ve had the pleasure to deal with in the last 60 days on purchases. See if they can give you a warm referral to a cash buyer you didn’t know about. (They didn’t need a loan then)
What I know, is when people move into a new house to them, they always want to do something. Change the bathroom, paint the walls, add a shed etc. If you do a polite “quality assurance” call to follow up on behalf of the RE Agent, and just ask if they are in need to obtain some equity now, it could be your win! Of course talk up the RE Agent or Title rep that referred you and ask for reviews for them. It’s a great way to add value to your partners and source new business at the same time. I go over the guidelines below:
The delayed financing exception can be done very often on both Fannie Mae’s side and the Non-Agency side of things. So reach out we have 9 different options under the Non-Agency umbrella that could help too! #LetsDoBusiness – Get on Point with #BluePoint – CLICK HERE!
