Dear Loan Origination Professional,
What if your rates were 100 basis points better while you were netting 210-230 basis points per closing AFTER expenses? Read on. There is a simple reason behind the name of our company. Sure, we have much better rates and lower than the banks and correspondent fees lenders, which saves our clients a lot of money, but our name also reflects how much less the loan originator pays to the company to run their business, which leaves you walking away with substantially more money than you ever thought possible. I talk to loan originators on a daily basis who discover they would have made DOUBLE what they earned in the past year in many cases if they had been on our pay plan. Combine this with selling better rates, lower fees and receiving high level support and coaching to help you build your business and now you have something to really consider!
Even if you are already "successful and happy" in your current position, sometimes we don't know what we don't know, and that can be detrimental to our career potential as loan originators. At times, there may not be anything wrong on the surface, which prevents us from asking ourselves how much more right it could be if we were exposed to a better system.
How do I know? Because I've been there myself...for a huge percentage of my career in fact. I was always a top loan originator putting up big numbers at every company I ever worked for, and unfortunately as a result, I thought I knew more than I did. In short, I had no idea what I was missing out on by becoming a broker again and combining that with other critical leverage points to help me earn the highest quality business out there, giving my clients better interest rates and making way more money doing it. The freedom to have access to all the top lenders, the best pricing, substantially better compensation, and without all layers of management from massive correspondent/banking operations constantly digging into my pocketbook.
Here is a simple and straightforward breakdown on why top loan originators are joining our team and never looking back. FACT-we have not had a single loan officer quit or be terminated since the start of our company. If that isn't a testament to the things we are doing right, then I'm not sure what would be. As a top loan originator who is potentially looking to make a transition, there are some major considerations, and listed below are a few of the important ones:
Having said that, here's what I have in place that I believe makes Reduced Fee Mortgage Inc. a superior choice in each of those categories:
As most seasoned loan officers are aware, the lenders that have the best rates continually ebb and flow on a regular basis. This is why we have dozens of different lenders in place for to make sure that we are in a position to always offer the best pricing regardless of what any individual lender may do at a certain point in time
As a broker, we can sign-up any new lender within a matter of days if we want to add them to the roster. We are not bound to one rate sheet like a bank or a correspondent lender
As a broker we also have lower margins across the board and those margins are 100% transparent for everyone to see, meaning there is no greedy middleman putting all of your commissions in their pocket. This means better compensation for the loan officer (more regarding that in the next section).
Our compensation plan is 200%+ greater than the industry average, and there are multiple ways to get paid:
I really don't think that there is such thing as having to "too many options" in today's current mortgage marketplace. More loan products to provide you and your clients and referral partners more solutions, which ultimately equal better service and more commission checks for you and your realtors. 90% bank statement loans with great rates, 80% stated loans up to $3,000,000, DSCR no income rental property loans up to 80% (where one individual can own up to 20 properties), one day out of bankruptcy, one year out of foreclosure... The list goes on and on. Your referral partners have problems? Now you have solutions...
At Reduced Fee Mortgage, one area that we do not cut any corners on is technology. Technology to generate new business. Technology to make sure you don't lose the business you already have. Technology to scavenge your current database and notify you if rates drop, or if your client gets their credit pulled by another lender, or if your client puts their current home on the market. Technology to make document collection super easy (even for clients who are not tech-savvy), as well as making the overall loan process so much smoother than what you are probably used to.
While this may sound a little harsh, one of the simple reasons behind our operational success is the fact that we only hire pros when it comes to both loan originators and loan processors. Our systems flow smoothly and make our employees a lot of money, both on the origination side as well as the administrative side for this reason. In fact, we have some of the highest-paid administrative people in the industry. The reason why is very simple. This is not a training ground for brand new people in the industry. This is a platform for high functioning professionals who already know what they are doing, but want to sell better rates, get more high-level support, close more loans, and be paid more on each closing.
We are the only company that I am aware of, that does not have a single administrative person on base salary. Not one! Yes, you heard me correctly. Our administrative support staff is 100% commission just like you are. Why would any administrative person in their right mind subject themselves to this? Because we close a ton of deals, and they get paid much more money per deal than the industry average, and they know this! What does this mean to you as a loan originator? Simply put... Your administrative support staff wants every loan closed as badly as you do! They have a lot of money at stake just like you do, and if the loan doesn't close, they don't get paid. None of us do! This means we are all in it together, which naturally creates a very high proven success rate.
We spend thousands of dollars per month on coaching that you have 100% free access to, as well as hiring tools you won't pay a penny for to help you build your team as you grow. We are all about helping our loan originators solve the bottlenecks in their careers, level up, and build out the right team to reach the heights that you aspire to be at!
In addition to this here are a couple of other important benefits that you will want to be aware of:
Work from home (or a private office if you choose). The result of our team doing this is simple. Fewer distractions, greater results, and bigger paychecks across the board. There is absolutely no question that this works. We worked from an office for 17 years and going remote was the best thing our team ever did.
