Well that week shot past me in the blink of an eye. One minute it was Monday morning and I was napping and farting in Doug’s office. The next minute it was Friday evening and I was napping and farting at home!
It was nice to have Graeme and Doug in the office all week. As it turned out, it proved an absolutely God-send having Doug there. For one reason or another, Doug ended up teaching our mortgage broking students. Despite the fact that he had to change all his plans, I know that he enjoys teaching the students. After almost 30 years in the industry, he still gets a buzz out of passing on his knowledge to people looking to develop a career in property and finance.
Simone has just started a kick-boxing class after a work. I don’t know how she does it; looking after all those mortgage broking students must surely exhaust her. I would need to go and have a dog-nap after a day running the training course. But then again, maybe the students give her so much hassle she needs to get rid of some frustration.
At the start of the home loan process clients often believe that the best deal is the lender that offers the best rate; but it’s way more complex than that. Chris had another tough week with one property purchase almost going belly-up and the client facing heavy penalties for a delayed settlement. Thankfully Chris had excellent contacts within the bank which meant that he could get it turned-around. Result – a happy ending.
Graeme is back in the pool swimming training after a severe attack of lazyitis. From what I can see he is a long way from having Daniel Craig’s body.
Finally, one of our part-time students, Mark, popped in. I am always amazed at how these brokers juggle things; keeping-down a PAYG job and building a business. For those who do manage it, they really develop lucrative careers.
