It would have been easy to fold up and go home. It would have been even easier to feel sorry for themselves... after all, they had invested their entire livelihood into this industry. They succeeded inside of it. They fought hard for every client. They studied every nuance of how it functioned. They knew everything there was to know about the Mortgage business, except that it was about to be destroyed and their successful Mortgage Brokerage was left stranded and broken amidst the Great Recession.
But that wasn’t the end. In fact, it was the beginning...
Nearly six years after the 2007 collapse of the United States housing market, the team at Phoenix Mortgage Specialists, Inc. felt it was time to reinvent themselves. It was time to start anew. They felt it was time to rise from the ashes – akin to the Greek mythological creature, The Phoenix. Tougher! Smarter! More relentless and more determined than ever before! Since 2013 and with over 50 years of combined experience in the mortgage industry, no team has worked harder and had as much success securing quality and affordable home loans for customers who believed their dream of homeownership to be unattainable than that of Phoenix Mortgage Specialists, Inc.
