Regan Hagestad would like to challenge those who claim that 30 years of experience in the Mortgage Lending Industry is inherently better than 10 years of practice. He claims that anyone who is truly great in the mortgage industry will be retired in 20 years, and there are few who can stay in the Mortgage Industry for that long without burning out or choosing to pursue other interests.
Regan highlights the mistake most people make in this internet age between data and knowledge. He contends a true Mortgage Professional is the one who has the knowledge to drill down into a situation, find the potential hurdles, and structure a loan so it benefits the client. Just going with the first program that pops up jeopardizes the client’s best interests both now and in the future.
