A Personal Touch Wins Business
Expand your lending footprint by adding value to your referral partners
Technology has brought more fficiency to mortgage profes- sionals’ lives. We can now do
in minutes what used to take hours —
typing up loan applications, verification
forms, good-faith estimates, etc.
But with technology’s efficiencies,
mortgage brokers and originators often forget that this business is about
building relationships — and relationships are built face to face and conversation by conversation. they can’t all
be formed via e-mail.

“Be the Best Broker You Can Be,”
View these articles and more at
them by occasionally meeting them
in person, whether it’s at their office discussing how we can enhance
our relationship or over lunch talking
about our families. the biggest challenge for most mortgage professionals seems to be determining a comfortable reason to meet with prospective customers and referral partners.
You need to know where they are
coming from and have something of
value to provide.
the livelihood of real estate agents
is based upon you not messing up
their transaction and thereby costing
them a paycheck. You can certainly
present yourself as a mortgage professional, but they are probably reasonably content with their current lender.
Remember, in today’s vanilla lending
environment, you can’t say that you
have different products or underwriting guidelines — everyone pretty much
has the same products. But you can
show them how you can help support
the growth of their business and assist
them in capturing more market share.
You have to provide value. One way to
do so is to provide marketing materials
and support to enhance referral part-
ners’ businesses or to aid their employ-
ees and clients. there are numerous
software programs that can provide
mortgage professionals with open-
house fliers, buyer-financing menus,
loan comparisons, etc. Some mortgage
companies make these materials avail-
able to their originators at no cost.
