I Should Have Known She Danced In The Rain!

Mortgage Lender in Charlotte, NC


I Should Have Known She Danced In The Rain!

I am looking for a database management program.  I am doing research and finding lots of different products with TONS of bells and whistles.  I don't need bells and whistles, I just need a good, basic program that I can use to follow up with my referral partners, prospects and clients.  It does need to be mortgage specific but doesn't need to underwrite loans.

In checking out one of the companies, I ran across a testimonial from a mortgage lender named Rebecca Madej.  I googled her name and sent her an email asking if she could take a moment to answer a few questions.

I got an email back within a short time.  Rebecca (yep, that's her above) said she just had dental work done, so she would be happy to answer any questions by email.   We sent a few emails back and forth.  She was super helpful and provided great insight!   She even sent me an invite email that will give me a discount EVERY month if I choose to use the program she uses.

Her last email said: 

Either way, thanks for reaching out and lets connect on activerain.  Have a great 2012!

I checked out her profile and she is one sharp cookie.  She has been in the mortgage business for 10 years (just like me!)  She just started blogging on ActiveRain in September, but I know that she will be a great addition to this forum. 

Please be sure to take a minute to welcome Rebecca!  If you are looking for a lender in Charlotte, NC, be sure to give Rebecca a call.  Based on my interaction with her today, I just know she will take good care!

Thanks for your help today Rebecca!  You Rock!  All the best to you in 2012!

I should have know she danced in the Rain!

Isn't it great when fellow Rainers connect?  A great group for sure.

Bridget,  Its a small world after all ... here in the Rain.  Just curious, what was the database management system you inquired about?

We all know that Realtors connect in the Rain, but it's great to see that lenders do too. Very nice endorsement.

What a small world. I have to admit that through AR we have strengthened a bond with one of the more respected Agents in our town.

Wow Bridget - thank YOU!   I do love connecting with lenders in other areas b/c I think it's good practice to share ideas and learn from others.  Again, many thanks!

Paula, It is wonderful.  I have truly made FRIENDS, not just business relationships!

Kathleen, The site is   I just signed up for the free trial.  Maybe Rebecca can send you an invite for the discount if you are interested.  At only $24/mo (for the full program) it's a great place to start!  If it works the way I'd like, and based on Rebecca's experience it will, I expect to be a long-term client!

Chris, As are you my friend!

Joyce, I have a feeling it will be a great connection!  I will see if I can sen you a link!

Ellie, And Realtors and lenders connect too!  Ain't ActiveRain Grand?

Mark, Good for you!  Keep it up and you may be surprised at how many folks you can connect with here!

Rebecca, Glad to do it!  I appreciate your insight and quick response.  Did Karen Deis get in touch with you about Mortgage Girlfriends?
