Description:

After working with over 65,000 customers, GMFS Mortgage realized that the public's working knowledge of the lending process is still very limited, most likely because buying, building or refinancing a home is something typically done once or only a few times in a person’s lifespan. So the MORTGAGE MATTERS weekly radio show is designed to bring together real estate and home financing experts to help educate listeners on the entire mortgage lending process and teach potential and current borrowers how to put themselves in the best position to buy, build or refinance a home. Weekly shows are typically divided into four segments: (1) All About Your Credit, (2) Mortgage Banker Perspective of the Week (3) Realtor Perspective of the Week and (4) Related Community Outreach efforts.
