A Few Words From Russell Smith
I have been fortunate to spend over 25 years in the mortgage industry and have used this time to build a wealth of knowledge. Additionally, I love sharing this knowledge so that others have a successful closing or at minimum make great decisions. Yes, being a “mortgage geek” is important to me. Actually, hearing buyer, loan officer, or Realtor success stories is so exciting and I just can’t get enough of them.
By writing articles, it gives me the opportunity to help as many people as possible. Furthermore, it is a humbling experience to be part of the marketing department which has helped drive the company website to exponential growth. Growth means more people are creating success stories and that is a very cool thing.
