Give an example of a time or project you felt you grew in your career.
I have been in this business for 30 years, and prior to Open Mortgage, I always worked for brokers. I won’t ever regret the move I made in 2012, when I became more independent. Though learning the specialized system was hard at first, I eventually realized this is what I had been looking for.
Describe a time you knew your work impacted a real family member or customer.
Recently, I helped a family to purchase their first home. They did not have any money saved, and they had debts. They also hadn’t reported taxes correctly. It took us a year to get the loan package ready, but when we got the property and submitted the loan, it was approved and the family was able to buy a home. They are very happy now.
What do you like most about working at a company like Open Mortgage?
My team, because they are always there to help me.
