What My Chicagoland Blog and Social Media Reveal

What My Chicagoland Blog and Social Media Reveal

     When you read blogs written by Real Estate or Mortgage industry professionals, you often run into a post that talks about how many of their leads were generated by their blogs and then ultimately turned into actual clients.  They're helping to spread the word to others about the effectiveness of blogging. 
      I've personally found with my Mortgage clients, that it's often not hard to draw a direct line between one specific post and their initial contact.  They're typically eager to relate how something they read on my post motivated them to action.

    But I've also found that an even larger number of my clients were motivated to find me after conducting a series of searches regarding my services.  They investigated me using a variety of methods.  Yes, that investigation often included included my blog.  And it often included talking to Referral Partners or former clients.  But their investigation included my online presence too.  In other words, my Social Media.  

     After talking with new leads (both client and Referral Partner), I find my mortgage blog was a valuable tool during their research, but my credibility soared as a result of my accumulative online efforts.  My blog ... each of my Social Media ... is a valuable piece of a larger puzzle.

    When you read or listen to media these days, you quickly find that the issue of a Mortgage Lender's business and personal credibility has become increasingly important.  So is their reliability and trustworthiness.  It's become that, just as within the Mortgage Process itself, documentation ... providing a reliable "trail" to follow regarding a Mortgage Lender's background, expertise, volume of experience, reputation, credentials, services, and more ... is vitally important.

     I can't begin to relate how many clients and Referral Partners have told me, "I see you everywhere!"  So when I hear from clients and Referral Partners that they are seeing me "everywhere" and that I'm easily found "everywhere" (physically or via multiple methods of communicating), I know that I'm establishing credibility, reliability, and trustworthiness regarding myself and my services.  It's providing them valuable info and giving reassurance regarding who I am and the quality of my services. 

     Simply, my Social Media and Blogging reveals ... me.  It pretty much reveals everything about ... me.  And that's exactly what I hope for.

Property Addresses: Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Property Addresses:   Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Take just a second and read through the following statements ...

“The devil is in the details” 
... "in life, it is often the tiny details that end up 
being the most important"

"Get Down To The Nitty Gritty"

“Little details have special talents in 
creating big problems!” 

“Sweat the details”

"Success is the sum of details"

Details ...Details ... it's all about the details ...
     And I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a nerd about them.  My whole family is.  Details, the intricacies, the little things ... they matter to us.
When I was growing up, a typical conversation (and argument) between my brothers and myself at the dinner table or in the backyard centered around "details".  It didn't matter what the topic was, it was the minor differences ... the details about the topic ... that we argued about.  I'm sure we drove our parents crazy.

Ready for Fall? It's Arriving Soon

Ready for Fall?  It's Arriving Soon

Friend ...

Maybe it's because football season has started. Maybe it's the kids being back in school. Or because the night air is cooler. But a sense of Fall has arrived here in Chicagoland ...

The Fall Season brings changes with it. Changes in temperatures. Changes to the clothing we wear. Our focus seems to shift with the coming of shorter days, falling leaves, and crisp air.

Fall can be the perfect time to do a multitude of things. You can prep your home for the upcoming winter weather ... or for Fall listing and sale. 

But whether you're moving on or staying put, Fall is a great time to declutter and organize your home inside and out ... and your finances too.

I've googled like crazy to find interesting articles filled with Fall info, ideas, tips, and photos. Articles that will help you usher the Fall Season in at your house. I hope you enjoy reading the articles offered below and that they inspire you to make any needed changes.


Paper or Paperless billing? Which serves YOUR needs best?

Paper or Paperless billing?  Which serves YOUR needs best?

These days, companies are under pressure to go "green" and become more environmentally friendly.  As a result, an increasing number of businesses are offering their customers a paperless option with which to receive and pay their bills. 

There are obviously many positives to be found within these paperless services:

Trees are saved  Reduced postage costs  Less paper documentation to organize or save/storePossible rewards for switching to paperlessPayments can often be made/posted same-dayAutomated payments can be set-upMore
But I can tell you from my vantage point as a Chicagoland/IL/WI Mortgage Originator, there are also negatives to be found within paperless methods.  For some of my mortgage clients, the choice of going "paperless" just hasn't worked well.

 For some, an email or text reminder regarding payment of bills has not been enough. They NEED a paper billing to arrive in their mail. 

Their paper bil…
