The Real Me Wednesday

The mortgage industry can be rough. Really rough. And I know having proper social media etiquette means sharing all the warm and fuzzies of life, but I got to thinking – if I’m sharing only the highlights of my life, it’s actually doing a disservice to everyone I’m friends with and all my business clients too. So, why not break the rules and let people know what really goes on behind the curtain?

I’m having my Wizard of Oz moment…it’s time to share the real me.

Every Wednesday I’ll be posting something about my week that’s nothing but honest and real. Hope you can relate, laugh, cry, or just enjoy some real-life rants. 🙂 I’m not going to spam you with weekly blog posts though, so follow up with me on Facebook for more Real Me Wednesdays. And feel free to hop on board and share your own Real Me Wednesday!

So, let’s kick this baby off! Here’s my #REALMEWEDNESDAY of the week:

✦ when i first started in 2002 I was 20 years old.  i generated 1-2 loans per month and had to convince folks often twice my age that they could trust a kid with their biggest asset. their home.

✧ this. frustrates. me. —> i’ve spent an entire week talking on the phone to buyers agents, title companies, my clients, and more, just to have the loan fall through.

i feel defeated when i spend weeks working my ass off to get a buyer pre-approved, answer ALL their questions, wait for them to find their dream home, only to have the client leave me for the discount guy down the street. dear wine, wanna have a date night?
