This is a picture of Margie and Chrissy. Margie is a doting grandmother. Chrissy is pregnant with her second child.
What makes this in any way out of the ordinary, you ask? Answer: many within the mortgage and real estate industries think these two lovely women are mortgage unicorns, otherwise known as Mortgage Underwriters.
Some mortgage companies act as if they’re unicorns. Some mortgage companies tell colleagues and clients that their underwriters are like Oz behind the curtain. Some just cryptically say “no, none of us can speak to the underwriter.” Here at PRMI, they’re simply teammates named Margie and Chrissy. Granted they’re teammates that perform a VERY important function, but they’re regular people who work side by side with all the other regular (but extraordinary) people here at PRMI.
We also have a Susan, a Marci, a Sandy, a Dani, a Christine, a Loretta, a Maritta, a Brenda and a Stacy. Who would name a unicorn Brenda??
When choosing a mortgage company, make absolutely SURE that you not only like and trust your loan officer, but that you also have an underwriter that is local and available in case anything complicated comes up!
