The Maryland Mortgage Mama
The Maryland Mortgage Mama, it's what I do and who I am! I have been in the mortgage business for about 14 years and over the years MORTGAGE MAMA has grown into not only my tag line, but my persona.
IN THE BEGINNING:
One of the realtors I worked with when I first became a loan originator came home from the Maryland Association of Realtors convention many years ago with a crystal pin that said REALTOR GODDESS. I thought it was cute and thought it was a great conversation piece. She told me about Crystal Persuasions, the company who made the pins.
I went online and found two that I liked that were mortgage related. One said "Loan Goddess" and the other "Mortgage Mama". I bought both. I never really identified with the Loan Goddess one, and didn't wear it very often. The other made sense. Not only am I a Mama (I have two sons, now 23 and 24, and a daughter who is now 9), but I work very hard to treat my mortgage clients like they are one of my own! I go above and beyond and will be a Mama bear when it comes to making sure that my clients are taken care of by everyone involved in the transaction.
When I started wearing the pin, it was certainly a conversation starter. In line at the grocery store, taking my daughter to school or another activity, pretty much any where I went people asked me about the market or had questions about their loan. At that time, I just thought it was a good way to let people know what I do.
MAKING IT STICK
I first met Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland at the first Active Rain Open House. It was put together for the Master Series for Realtor.com. There were lots of folks there from ActiveRain and at that time I was not really an ACTIVE member of ActiveRain. Not long after that, Dr. Stacey-Ann Baugh wrote a great testimonial blog post and Margaret called me to congratulate me on the write-up. I was honored that Margaret called me, and even more honored to recieve a referral from her during that conversation. In that call Margaret said, "Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't you the one known as the Mortgage Mama that came to my Open House?" Wow, with all the people that attended that Open House, Margaret remembered ME. Not only did she remember me, but she referred to me from then on as Mortgage Mama! My persona was born!
I fully embraced my inner Mortgage Mama and wear my pin almost everywhere. Since I currently only do mortgages in Maryland, it seemed only appropriate to become:
