DEANNA C. SMITH CERTIFIED MOBILE NOTARY
Certified Mobile Notary Signing Agent - Smith Mountain Lake, VA
Highest Ranked Certified Mobile Notary in Virginia

OK, I'll bite.   As a professional LICENSED Mortgage Loan Originator, I don't "help with websites, video marketing, single property websites, etc.".   I hire experts in that field to do the job for ME and I have some good ones.

I ONLY do Virginia Mortgages and Refinances.   That's why I am referred to as the "Virginia Mortgage Expert".   It's because I have mastered MY trade and left the other jobs to people who have mastered those  trades.

My standard pitch is NOT "low rates and great service"  because MY clients know I provide that already.   MY "pitch" is, "I care about MY clients and THEIR  goals and dreams".   That's why they have kept coming back to ME for over 30 years now and NEW clients are finding ME every day !

And if YOU want to "develop relationships with real estate agents"  as you say; you've got to come out of the shadows !   Being "anonymous" doesn't work.   Real estate agents and Lenders are in the "people business" !

MY bank's slogan is "Your Relationship Bank" and we work tirelessly to live up to that by helping every client on an out front and personal basis.

Find a way to generate the deals yourself, refer to top producing agents who can reciprocate.  That's how I built a very successful mortgage business in Minneapolis/St Paul

No. It's causes too many concerns and issues that I don't have time to deal with. What qualifies a loan officer to help with my website, video marketing, etc? I would prefer he/she focus on my buyers loan process.

I do not look to loan offices to provide me such services. I am an independent contractor and prefer to have control over my own business. The only think I look for from my lenders is great service and referrals in return for referrals from me.

The loan officer would need to have proven their excellence in handling loans and providing excellent customer service before I would enter into a business relationship with them.

If I want help with a website, marketing, etc, I would reach out to experts in those fields.

Wll I would consider but the bottom line is how well do they do their job for my buyers, not just help me grow my business. And if buyers come to me for suggestions about lenders, I given them several options - it's their choice

I agree with Joy Bender .  You would be well served to generate your own business and over time you WILL develop loyalty relationships with agents to supplement your business and vice versa.

In regards to your proposed services, they seem more targeted to assisting with marketing to existing agent clients (not generating new business).  I think most agents would be most interested in generating more new clients, not more ways of marketing for the ones they have.  Just my off the cuff thoughts.  

Good luck.  Always good to think outside the box.

NO...

I only want to do business with someone that is smart, savvy and has options for financing.  I want to work only with those that are the best in the business...and it is never someone that says they have the lowest rates.

I want someone who will return my call quickly, do a PQ on weekends or holidays, and someone whose opinion I can rely on.

I think you should find newbie agents to work with because I DO THINK you can work TOGETHER on marketing. Talk about First Time Buyer Seminar, direct mail marketing, I think Top Producers already have a bias on who they will work with but new agents are clueless and if you build a rapport with newbies then your business and theirs will grow together.

We do not work with lenders who do not have a proven track of record. If I see a preapprove letter I want to know how credible the loan agent is. Someone I never heard of the preapprove letter from a broker  I feel uncomfortable with. 35% off are cash other are conventional mortgage. The sellers have plenty to pick and choose.

Of course!

However, any Anony-mouse LO with such ambitions must be aware they are not the only voice promising more business. take you to the next level, apps that rock even a FREE website.

Five times a week the same feeble gesture.....by anyone who list real estate agents as part of their food chain.

So. put some fabric behind your offer and watch what happens.
