I am a residential Mortgage Advisor. I work for a local company in Plattsburgh, NY. I was gone for a while getting my career started before coming back to this great town. It is beautiful and peaceful here. I have 2 children and I think that Plattsburgh, NY is a great place to raise them.
Something that I have noticed about Plattsburgh upon my return is that the commercial sector has really picked up. There are many new restaurants, stores, and office buildings going up everywhere. There is even an international airport that has been built and is being setup right now. My business right now is exclusively residential. However I have the ability to broker commercial loans via the investors that we work with here at Lake City Mortgage but I have little experience with commercial loans.
Commercial is definitely something that I would like to add to my own personal product line. It is a good way to subsidize income while this "credit crunch" is going on.
Not only would getting into commercial loans benefit me by way of gaining valuable experience and increasing my income, but it will also give me the opportunity to give back to the community that I first got my roots. I love the idea of being a part of the expansion of Plattsburgh NY.
Although I do not have much experience commercially I work with a team of experts who have a ton of experience. I learn a great deal from my colleagues. I am very good at the residential side of things, but I am very interested in learning more and bringing some deals into the company. Anything commercial that I bring in initially I will be working on with the team here at Lake City Mortgage. Reputation is very important in this industry and especially in a town like Plattsburgh. I do want to get some commercial experience in, but I will not be flying solo on a commcercial deal until I am confident in my ability to complete a commercial deal without a hitch.
Any advice on how to enter into this area of the mortgage industry will be greatly appreciated.
