What makes you different as a lender?
This summer marks my 30th year in lending, my 11th partnering with Lisa and our ;fth at
EagleBank. We’re now working with the adult children of our ;rst clients.
Over the years, we’ve seen ;nancing fads and huge interest rate changes. In 1986, rates
were 10 percent, and conservative Washingtonians selected ;xed over adjustable-rate
mortgages. When ;rst asked if we had ARMs, I replied: "and legs," because I didn’t know
what ARMs were!
We’ve seen stated income, no-doc and extreme full documentation loans. We met
face-to-face, shook hands and signed in ink. Now, we scan and e-sign, and barely meet in
person. In today’s digital, app-driven, instant-grati;cation society, information travels fast,
and it’s a world of swiping left and right without evaluating the full picture. The internet is
great for quick information, but you’ll ;nd just as much misinformation.
Financing a home is a huge ;nancial decision, one that requires professional assistance
versus self-diagnosis. As mortgage experts in the community, we strive to know our clients
and gain their trust. They appreciate that we provide solutions beyond the digital world and
can evaluate and discuss pros and cons of ;nancial options—a level of service not available elsewhere with a purchase of this magnitude. The people behind a website are not
neighbors who care about you like we do.
So often people call and ask: “What's the rate?” That, sadly, may be their sole basis for
selecting a lender. Rates are important to us, too, and when you add quality and consis-
tency of service from your Realtor, lender and title company, you quickly realize the bene;ts.
When you call us with a question, you’re going to get Lisa or me on the phone, and we’ll
know you and your situation and welcome your call!
