Fall in love with mortgage… again

by Heather Turner08 Feb 2017
What is there not to love about the mortgage industry? Well, for some, economical shifts and regulatory changes have caused a few bumps in the road but despite the tribulations, now, more than ever, is an amazing time to join the business and enjoy the challenges – and the rewards. 

“We think the mortgage business is an amazing business, and we are proud to have been a part of it for the last 20 years,” says Jason Dozois, CEO of home loan lender Loan Simple. “The business can provide a great living for all involved. It allows for a healthy work/life balance, web/mobile applications mean you can perform any function from any location, you get to work as a team toward a common goal, and the end product is helping borrowers achieve their dream of homeownership,” he says. “What’s not to love?”

At Loan Simple, Dozois and his team strive to create an environment that promotes the growth and success of its employees and clients. However, the truth is, not all companies provide the tools, technology, and support to make their loan officers and branch managers succeed. Resources such as education and training make all the difference, especially considering changes to the regulatory environment that creates hurdles along the path. “We don’t allow the regulations to become an obstacle in their growth. Through the use of technology, our simplified processes and procedures, and excellent support, LOs and branch managers are free to focus entirely on growing their business,” says Dozois. 

To ensure successful relationships within the organization, Dozois suggest two keys that are imperative to a streamlined business and customer satisfaction: communication and consistency. According to Dozois, by combining great communication with the consistency of a dedicated underwriter, the loan officers at Loan Simple are able to experience incredible growth, and keep loans simple for the consumer. “There are less questions and wasted steps. Your pipeline starts to move faster, approvals have fewer conditions, and your files have fewer rounds in underwriting. Instead of missing closings, you are early, and borrowers and realtors start to recognize how much easier the process has become because you are creating a great experience for all involved,” says Dozois. “We believe that in order to make this a business people love to work in, we have to be the company people love to work with.”

    Obviously, Loan Simple is hiring. This reads like an infomercial for them. All it needed was the contact info for the recruiter at the end.

    Yes, Loan Simple is hiring. I myself was captivated by the glitz & glamour and would be working there if not for one thing. That being where I work has all the above and something I have only experienced here, and that means something since I have been in origination/management since 10/1993. What is the secret sauce of where I work? I wish I could put it in words easily but THEY ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT THEIR EMPLOYEE'S. Everywhere I have worked especially the larger places tend to treat mortgage officers as a commodity. The support personnel that owe their jobs to the fact LOAN OFFICERS bring in mortgages allowing the company to make a profit thus their payroll are treated as if they are brain dead idiots. I know this has allot to do with jealousy however where I work the personnel from the receptionist to the top ranking managers treat Loan Officers like rock stars...even when you're not. Where is this magic place? It is a secret! You see, if I told you then you then would want to come to work here lessening my importance. The truly fantastic places to work don't advertise or write articles because they don't have to. I am just EXTREMELY grateful to a friend who told me about this place before retiring. Thank you, Claudia Arends.
