Our goal is to provide aspiring professionals, as well as anyone wanting to start a new rewarding career, with the opportunity to succeed and grow in the mortgage industry.  We have combined our school integrity, experienced professionals, a successful track record, and corporate support from our business partners to achieve our goal. We invite anyone to take advantage of the training program to enhance their life to the fullest. We teach loan officers to succeed by finding and speaking to more people that are interested in or would benefit by borrowing money, turning those prospects into committed loan applications, competing against the internet and all of the “bad loan officers” that a borrower will quickly find if they decide to “shop around”, to avoid selling rate and sell a mortgage as a service not a product, to understand the tax and leverage advantages of home ownership and debt consolidation, monthly cash flow, equity acceleration, leverage, investing monthly savings for a future value, to package a file that processors only dream of and much, much more.
