I was recently out of town for nine days helping my daughter (who just gave birth to the worlds most beautiful baby - please meet Kiah Bliss)
For the six weeks prior to this, my business had slowed down. I wasn't too worried about it as we know things go in cycles. There was only one closing scheduled while I was gone and I thought there might be one or two new loans; meaning I would have a pretty stress-free time away from the office.
Wrong! In the first four days of my trip, I had four clients go under contract. By the time I headed home, I had six new loans. And I forgot mention, I no longer have an assistant, which is a tragedy of its own.
Of course, all these loans needed to get started right away. I am very blessed to work with amazing people that stepped in to help. Processors Jill and Katie were amazing and three fellow loan officers took time out of their very busy schedules to meet with my clients and go over paperwork to get signatures etc.
It's hard to express the gratitude I feel for everyone, so I decided to show it.
I picked up these adorable piggy banks for the processors.... THANKS FOR SAVING ME! (this cute idea came from my bff Rhonda Johnson with AlaskaUSA Mortgage)
For the guys that met with my clients, I gave them a box of cupcakes to take home to their families. Nothing like a little sugar overload to say THANKS!
