On today’s show, Debbie brings in Team Member and Loan Officer Carrie Margulies to talk shop. They start the show off with “Catching Up with Mom” where they chat about last Father’s Day weekend, Debbie’s Lake Havasu birthday and the big upcoming fireworks concert in Moorpark/Thousand Oaks on July 3rd. Debbie even offers her audience two free tickets for that concert if they download the Mortgage Mom Radio App.

Carrie brings up the ongoing theme of clients having cash for a down-payment but not having proof of where it came from. Debbie and Carrie talk about the importance of depositing cash and letting it “season” in order for it to become usable funds. They drill down on how they can work with those amounts of cash by giving scenarios.

This leads them to the subject of “Gift of Equity Purchase.” Carrie expands on this subject by giving a current example of one of her loans and the benefits of “gifting.” Debbie expands even more on that topic when she talks about the “Parent to Child” gifting. They also take great questions on the subject of gifting from their audience.

Debbie is determined to get a jingle recorded for her new 800 number along with accepting phone calls “live” for her next show.

Rates are still phenomenal according to Debbie and Carrie so pulling cash out and doing a refi is beneficial at this time.

They talk Escrow, title insurance, cancelling mortgage insurance, paying off student loans, homeowner’s insurance, investment properties, closing costs and inherence of property taxes.

Debbie states that the goal of her show is to educate her audience with the wisdom her team have already acquired through their many combined years of finance. She says that there is no such thing as a dumb question. Reach out today!

On today’s segment, Debbie brings in real-estate agent and childhood friend Heather Barkley-Kilpatrick to discuss various topics. Debbie also talks with her son (and high-ranking gamer) Mikey about the details of the online gaming world since she is officially sponsoring that part of the industry. Heather chimes in on the subject and points out how lucrative that business has become in recent years while Mikey relates the gaming industry to the world of sports and what the similarities and differences are. This further fuels Debbie’s ongoing determination to one day do a loan with one of these gamers.

Debbie expresses on how her show is tailored to bringing education to her listeners and how important that is. She reveals her various referral partners ranging from insurance agents, realtors and home inspectors. Heather drills down on the subject of referral partners with specifics when she talks about bidding, repairs, contractors, roof inspectors, plumbing inspectors and finding a handyman. Debbie takes the opportunity to express how personable and reachable her team is at all times in all home-buying relations. Debbie and Heather then discuss how the rates this week specifically are going up and down and how important it is to get prepared when doing a re-finance or purchasing a home, especially when locking in a rate. They even talk a little bit about Bitcoin and how things that are happening in the world currently do impact the interest rates.

Debbie then urges the importance of future home-buyers to be upfront and honest about their credit scores, especially when getting an accurate quote for their loan. She states that going through the credit report with her clients can enhance benefits to these future home-buyers in the long run due to her leveraging talents and years of experience. Debbie gives examples and scenarios of various options she can juggle through with her clients in order to get to a successful decision.

Debbie is consistently asking the audience to be interactive on her show, especially because of the potential of bringing up points that can be discussed more in detail.

Heather and Debbie reminisce on the 80’s, their childhood experience together and subjects of hairstyles, clothing styles and make-up.

Debbie clearly considers her team-members as “family” and the importance of working with them.

Both Debbie and Heather jump back on the subject of loans. They talk about paying points for a loan, conventional loans and other scenarios to help further educate the audience. Education for their audience is their goal. Education from Mortgage Mom Radio is free, so “book an appointment and get educated” says Debbie, even if the client may be going through a competitor lender. It doesn’t matter because they are here to help you. Debbie also gives more scenarios on how dropping mortgage insurance will save the client money. Heather also points out how she was able to combine a first and second loan for a client and save them a “ton of money,” including dropping their mortgage insurance. She also says that because of her client calling in with a goal, Heather was able to analyze the goal and give even better options than what the client first embarked on. Debbie discloses to her audience that they can now make appointments on weekends, which is a positive game-changer for her clients. Heather sympathizes with the potential clients that have random schedules, and drills down on Debbie’s point of being open during the weekends.

 They get on the topic of loan modifications, deferments, forbearances and how Covid enabled these options. Debbie talks about how her team can strategically help with refinancing due to forbearances and deferments. Debbie and Heather bring up three important points: #1 – Hold on to your loan modification paperwork because that is “golden.” #2 – Make an appointment so they can see your situation and help you with it. #3 – Refinancing does NOT show up on your credit report, only on your title report. Debbie makes the point that interest rates are currently still good. She emphasizes the importance of people calling in and or commenting during the show to keep the interaction and education flowing. Debbie is excited about her phone App and Toll-Free number soon allowing text messages, which will create more interaction with her audience and potential clients.

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021 – Debbie opens up today’s show by bringing in seasoned loan officer Larry Ehrlich AKA the Mortgage Dad to explore various topics. They discuss what was first to crash during 2007, 2008 and 2009 with the correlation of investment properties and second homes. They also point out how current investment properties have quite a bit higher of an interest rate compared to primary residence properties due to lenders protecting themselves from future disasters.
