My favorite part of MortgageCurrentcy.com is “Ask the Expert”, because it makes me one. I also like the prepared flyers for Realtors, because it made me look good with them too. But the best thing is, if you’re battling with an underwriter, you have documentation to prove you’re right.  Dave Means, SFRC, Billerica, New Hampshire


Mortgage Currentcy saves me regularly.  Rebecca Davidson, Envoy Mortgage, Denver, Colorado

I got a deal because I read about an obscure Fannie Mae rule on Mortgage Currentcy then used that as my BNI commercial. Turns out there was a substitute present and he fit the exact scenario! Bingo! I’m seen as an expert. Love it.  Peggy Wilson, Huron Valley Financial, Ann Arbor, Michigan

The information in Mortgage Currentcy is very carefully researched. You can take it to the bank! But the Facebook posts come in handy for those RARE moments when I’m speechless! The flyers are the best. MC is worth quadruple what you pay! (Karen….you didn’t see that!)

I love the charts in Mortgage Currentcy. I really like that the summaries/notices are always followed by the regulation identity. I’m always on a firm footing when it comes to a “discussion” with the underwriter. It also saves me a lot of time on researching. Thank you Karen for such a great tool and for keeping the price affordable.
Joyce Boyer, 1st Capital Mortgage, Owasso, Oklahoma


Mortgage Currentcy is an integral part of my business. We are all busy and having a service that boils down guideline changes across all types of loans is invaluable. Changes are summarized in layman’s language with links two details in the guidelines. Many times Flyers are created so all we have to do is copy and paste to share with our Network. I also use ask the expert which has saved more transactions then I can count. I highly recommend this affordable service if you are in real estate lending in any way shape or form.

This is the 2nd loan that Mortgage Currentcy saved for me in 2 weeks.
I love you guys! Michael Vetri, NLC Mortgage, Media, PA


Amazing resource! Mortgage Currentcy provides excellent straight forward material to help navigate today’s mortgage maze.
Melissa Hoover, Highlands Residential Mortgage, Sterling, Virginia


I send out a letter to my data base of agents and those I’ve worked with. I include a section called “Did you know?” and in this section, I include an article you have published in LoanOfficerMagazine.com. For instance, my last one was “Things not to say in an MLS listing description.” Subscribing to your e-zine is real “plus” to my marketing efforts to my agents and provides them with invaluable information when working with their clients to garner more business and gives the “added value” as well.  Robin Shoop, Virginia Beach, VA


This is the 2nd loan that Mortgage Currentcy saved for me in 2 weeks.

Tina Harrison, Acopia Home Loans, Georgia


I am impressed with each and every webinar [How to Get Qualified Leads by Holding Home Buying Seminars], additional information section, etc. I mentor 4 Loan Originators who sat in on the session. Needless to say we all are energized and can clearly see the value of your experience. We are hooked; starting our plan immediately. Jean Strohofer, Guardian Savings Bank, Ohio


Your “No Shiny Objects e-book has manageable marketing ideas and strategies that stand the test of time and will indeed, make a positive impact on the growth of your business. Plus, the ideas are fun and creative which makes a big difference as to whether one fully implements a marketing project or not. I guarantee it’s the, “Everything” marketing book you’ll come back to over and over so keep it handy!” Coach Victoria Del Frate of I CAN Coaching Company


Your new book—No Shiny Objects… is excellent.  It’s a quick read, but with a lot of clearly explained practical ideas for loan originators to consider.  Your last section about the importance of a database and the exit strategy is something most loan officers don’t consider, but any small business should have as part of its strategic planning. Rick Obst, Umpqua Bank, Eugene Oregon


I just watched VA Sales Concessions – Deal Saving Secrets [class] and it kicked ASS!!! My book of business is about 25% VA (Live in San Diego) and this was incredibly well done. Thank you, Thank you, and Thank You! Dan Williams, San Diego, California


When I think of the people that had positive influences in my life, you are certainly on the top of that list. There are so many people out there that choose to dwell on the bad and hopelessness of situations. I was very lucky to have had you as a mentor in my young years in this business. Your outlook is always hopeful and exciting! I have pulled from your wisdom many times! Darla Watts, Kennewick, WA


Awesome class, Karen! [Non-Owner Occupied Loans: Comparing Fannie to Freddie] It was concise, easy to follow, and a great refresher. The checklist provided after is perfect. The handout was formatted making the fine print on the slides hard to read, but that was the only difficulty I had. Definitely worth the time! Thank you for all you do to support those of us in the industry. Bria Johnston, Eagle River, Alaska


Karen, I just wanted to let you know that I have already received several warm responses from several realtors to whom I sent the flyer we finalized this morning. I can’t thank you enough for all of your help and for reminding me that a woman’s intuition is nothing to ignore! Loni Wielgot, Loan Originator, Illinois (MortgageGirlfriends.com DIVA member)


Thank you very, very much. Your quick response is why I am willing to pay of my subscription. David Odle, Seekonk, Massachusetts


Karen, I thought that the class [Non-Owner Occupied Loans: Comparing Fannie to Freddie] was great and the online material excellent. Vicki Reser, Vice President, MLO, Missouri


Thank you both (Lloyd, MortgageCurrentcy.com expert & Karen Deis) for your help. I was able to finally get my loan approved at the stated value from customer, rather than the value from DU. It truly saved the deal. Tara Rees, Mortgage Loan Specialist, Utah
