2015 Mortgages….It just may take a village

Mortgage-and-keysAre you in the process of buying or refinancing a home? If so, you probably have had  to run all over town and deliver the same information (again) to multiple parties? Are you frustrated?  Are you stunned and pissed off thinking the mortgage process in inept and inefficient?  My customers are..and there is not a whole lot we can do about it, but give the Lender what they want, again, and again, and again.

I think you will agree that the “current mortgage process is plagued by errors, duplication of effort and outdated processes, procedures and policies” as  stated in “It will take a village to close a mortgage in 2015”.
