Good Morning.

So rates are going up again and expected to go up once more this year.

For those of you who know me you know I have been originating for over 30 years and rates were over 18 when I started
so going from 4-5 isn’t really a big deal in the scheme of things.

But clearly business has slowed down dramtically for many originators I am speaking with which made me want to write to you today.

When I first started my manager was an alcoholic who threw a manual at me and said “Go Get”em” The good news is I figured
it all out but it was ugly , frustrating and costly in time and money.

Write this down- The Shortcut To Achieving Your Goals are to model someone who is already achieving them.
Notice I didn’t say someone who did it years ago or never did it.

A while ago I used to have a closed door mastermind group. We would meet and discuss challanges and successes and much more.
They had full access to me during these days to ask me whatever questions or challanges they had.
What’s interesting is that 5 of today’s major trainers in our industry were in this group and have gone on to become tops in our industry.
They each invested 1900 a month – yes a month- to be in this group and most were in the group for many years so obviously the investment was worthwhile.

I will not mention their names here but I am sure you would instantly recognize them and I am thrilled by what they have accomplished.

Which brings me to June 21st and the shortcut.

This the open Q and A day for all Top Originator Mastermind Members and I see that you are not on this list

Let me first assure you that there is no long term commitment – I either deliver or you say goodbye but for a short period I am also

Like them or not we all need a stable of agents who refer us to their clients. As I travel around the country I often hear originators say they would rather have a root canal without anesthesia then work with Realtors and to me that is a big mistake.

First you must think of them as people just like you and I.

Their goal is to sell homes and our goal is do mortgage loans for those buyers. So we are already on the same page in terms of goals. Yes, there are some agents that are not loyal and some that aren’t particularly nice. But you will find that many are nice and many are also loyal.


When I first started in the business many years ago- 1985 to be exact, agents were in their offices and easy to meet with. Today, with technology, many simply work remotely from home or even in other states.
So I wanted to share with you some “old school” and also some creative ways of getting to meet them and have them see you as a resource instead of a desperate beggar.

I am sure this sounds totally obvious but if you want to meet Realtors why not go to their associations and meet them as peers. All of these groups have affiliate level memberships. You should join and become active and use that as a way to meet new agents.

While you are active in these Associations why not write articles on mortgage financing for their publications and teach continuing credit classes. There is no easier way to position yourself as an expert and at zero cost.

This one is probably more old school but offer your existing list of agents the opportunity to sponsor a broker open. You can put together some promotional flyers and flyers for the home. Once there you have the opportunity to meet other agents who are touring the home and the agent holding the brokers open will introduce you.

Every transaction you do has a listing agent. Reach out and introduce yourself. Send them weekly status updates. Call them with updates. Call them when the loan closes and on all of these touches ask them to meet with you so you can show them some of the creative tools and programs you have.

Here’s one other “Old School” tactic for you. When you can, try to attend each closing. This is the time when everyone is happy and it’s your chance to meet the listing agent and title reps face to face.
It’s also your chance to stay top of mind with the agent and buyers and remind them that you love referrals.
You don’t need to stay for the whole closing. Just make your appearance, wish good luck and be on your way.

One of the most overlooked sources of new business are title reps. These folks are out there each and every day just like us looking for new business and relationships.
Try to get them to introduce you to some of the agents they do business with and in turn you can recommend them as well. You could even hold a joint happy hour or educational trainings. They will invite their database and you invite your database thereby creating a true win- win situation.

This is a tactic I just tested with tremendous success. I went into a number of Facebook and Linked In groups that are populated by Realtors in my city and invited everyone to a webinar on how to use renovation loans to sell more homes. I also invited all of the agents in my own database including the listing agents on my deals.
I held a 30 minute webinar and within 2 days I had 3 new deals with agents I had not previously worked with.

Give these a try and let me know your results below
