Joe McBreen was outstanding and explained everything well. I have already recommended him to colleagues. However, I would prefer answers in writing rather than phone calls.

About Joe

Joe interview Q&A

Who is your typical customer and what questions do they typically have?
1st time buyers, investors in real estate, past clients looking to refinance. What is your best rate?
What advice would you give new or first time home buyers?
It is vital to get pre approved for financing and work with a realtor who knows the market and property in your price range.
What part of the home loan process do customers find most difficult and how do you help them through it?
Customers typically find the amount of paperwork required to be most cumbersome for them. My team and I help to walk them through submitting all the required documents at one time to avoid multiple reqeusts for paperwork. This helps to expedite the loan process and gives the client a good experience.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
The most satisfaction I have with my career as a loan officer is helping a first time buyer finance their first home. It is very rewarding to have past clients or realtors refer you over and over again to new customers based on the good work that we do.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
I read as much as possible, and can sometimes be reading 2 or 3 books at the same time.
