In this episode, I get to sit down with Leora Ruzin, Vice-President of Secondary Marketing at Guaranteed Rate, based in Chicago. She has 12 years of experience in the mortgage space and is also an army veteran. Like Jen, Leora is also a contributing writer for Mortgage Women Magazine, where she recently published the article 2019 — The Year of Me.
Leora shares her thoughts on the trends she’s observing in the mortgage industry in 2019, as well as some of the niche products she is seeing appear in the marketplace to cater to a different group of people, short-term financing, and changes in interest rates. We discuss the motivation behind her recent article 2019 — The Year of Me, and how she sees this playing out in the coming year. Ultimately, standing behind your own truth will create vulnerability that attracts clients and referral partners, rather than deflecting people. Leora also has some advice for people who need to do some soul-searching — it’s all about authenticity, being who you are, and knowing that it’s okay to ask for help and support when you need it. Tune in to find out more!
