Change is Inevitable.
The Outcome From That Change is Not
This last weekend was filled with "My Little Pony", "Shopkins", and "My Littlest Pet Shop" toys.
Our grandbaby, Marilyn, visited with us while her Mom and Dad were busy. As usual, she had her collection of Ponies, Pets, games, and toys in tow with her when she arrived.
Her cousin, Eva Mae, is much the same when she visits us. She typically has her favorite doll or stuffed animal tucked under her arm. Or our little gymnast is tumbling and twirling as she comes through the door.
As the father of only boys, having grand-daughters has been a new experience for me. These beautiful little girls have taught me much.
I can now pass a quiz about Ponys and Shopkins with flying colors. I can also make a pony tail with the best of 'em.
Yep. My grand-daughters have brought big changes to my life. And not just in the number of hugs and kisses I receive. And I have to admit, I'm lovin' all of them ...
But after little Marilyn left this weekend, it occurred to me just how much my life has changed since she (and the other grandbabies) entered it. Both personally and professionally.
It's been said that "the only thing constant in life is change". That's certainly been true at the Mundt house since our first grand-daughter arrived 5 years ago.
But that's certainly been true in the Mortgage industry over the last 5 years too ...
As with most things in life, change is handled better by some than others. Some will see change as an opportunity. They'll embrace it.
They'll stretch, grow, learn ... apply the change fluidly and successfully. I've certainly tried very hard to do this with my mortgage services.
But for others? The opposite is true.
When changes occur within their lives, the outcome found is often the direct result of their attitude and mindset. Each of which can affect the people around them ... and those they provide services to.
Current and future Mortgage Applicants should consider this seriously when searching for a Lender. So should real estate professionals when they refer.
- How has the Lender handled all the changes that have occurred within the industry?
- Have they educated themselves to the many changes?
- How many loans have they Closed since the changes took effect?
- Has a pattern of successful Closings emerged?
- More ...
The answers found to the above questions are a good indication of how your (or your client's) mortgage processing will progress ... and of the likelihood of your finding a successful outcome.
Their are vast differences between Lenders. Do your homework. Find yourself a Lender that has responded well ... responded positively to the challenge of the recent changes. And has proof of such in the form of Closed mortgages.
Change is inevitable. But the outcome from that change is not ...
