I subscribed to a fair number of mortgage publications and just subscribed to yours. During the first hour of my subscription, I received more useful information and tools than I’ve received from any other sources over the last year. They are real world and I’ll be a long-time client.

Karen, I just wanted to let you know that I have already received several warm responses from several Realtors to whom I sent the flyer we finalized this morning. I can’t thank you enough for all of your help and for reminding me that a woman’s intuition is nothing to ignore!

What Others Say About Us

When I think of the people that had positive influences in my life, you are certainly on the top of that list. There are so many people out there that choose to dwell on the bad and hopelessness of situations. I was very lucky to have had you as a mentor in my young years in this business. Your outlook is always hopeful and exciting! I have pulled from your wisdom many times!

What Others Say About Us

Your new book—No Shiny Objects… is excellent. It’s a quick read, but with a lot of clearly explained practical ideas for loan originators to consider. Your last section about the importance of a database and the exit strategy is something most loan officers don’t consider, but any small business should have as part of its strategic planning.

ProAssistMarketing.com helped me by sending out an email to all my Realtors on “What do you tell clients to do after closing?” and several of my Realtors responded with a thanks and some suggested additions to the list. This means that I now have their attention!!! In addition, in an email that went out to clients about appraisals, I received a referral to a new prospect that is buying a home in the area. I love this turnkey solution to marketing!
