Refinance applications increased 15.8 percent in the past week, according to the Mortgage Banker's Association.

As you undoubtedly know, a career in the mortgage industry comes with a special set of challenges. Let’s take a look at some of the stressors that drain a broker’s energy and emotions and ways to handle them.

With the turbulent times and all the negative media of today's mortgage industry, borrowers are wary of the intentions and integrity of mortgage originators. So how do we build the borrowing publics' confidence back? Be up-front, real, and honest with your borrowers.
Everything we do should be centered on ethical practices and customer-centric philosophies. Our work should be based on honesty and high moral standards, aimed at helping borrowers achieve financial freedom and improve their financial situations.
