Now in Florida for a month, it is time to look back and forward. I have taken the Florida Mortgage Broker Pre-licensing Course. A lot of it was review, but every state has different laws and the focus on the Florida statutes was interesting. I have taken and passed the Florida State Exam. And I will be starting with Aim Mortgage out of Bradenton as soon as my license is issued. I will resume offering VA loans, FHA loans & Reverse Mortgages to clients in my area. And, as I promoted in one of my earliest entries, I will 'hit 'em where they ain't' by calling on a couple of rural counties about 80 miles away. [October 2006].
I have a lot of people to meet, calls to make, things to learn and loans to originate. The last 90 days was a time to pause, reflect, re-focus and to plan. Meeting people no matter what you do is important. For me, that would include on the golf course, on the basketball court through my association with officials in a new area, in class, through trade associations & discussion groups, at church, and wherever else I might go. And so now, the adventure begins.
