There was a time that I felt like “friends” in the mortgage business were the ones that carried a knife where you could see it visibly – in other words, sooner or later everyone was going to stab you in the back. Just that “friends” would tell you they were going to stab you! Then I found Mortgage Girlfriends (actually, somehow Karen found ME! Thank God!) Then I realized it really was possible to have friends in this business that understood and worked with the same values, integrity, and willingness to help and support each other without fear of being taken advantage of. “Mortgage Girlfriends” says it all… we share, we ask, we comfort without expecting anything in return.
