What do you think are the biggest issues facing the broker industry?
Part-time agents, inexperience and lack of training are tarnishing the industry.

No politics – you form a team that works well together.
What does your company do differently to stand out from the competition?
We try to hire seasoned veterans that all get along, work well together and assist each other. We are very concerned with service and building long-term client and lender relationships.
