The ECHO Experience, The Final Steps
- Guest Author, Miranda Tharp


The last portion of the ECHO process has been a little less exciting than the other two (you can read about them here:  Part 1 & Part 2.)  I spoke to an ECHO representative twice since the last blog.  The ECHO process has been a huge help though, it actually works very well.  The process takes patience and understand that when they say it will take six months, that is an average time frame and it could be longer, since each person’s situation is different.

The ECHO Button Experience

Part 2 of 3: How the ECHO button helps consumers prepare for a home loan.

I’ve been using the ECHO program since May and wrote about my initial experience when I started the program.  The beginning of the process was very smooth and helpful with understanding what would happen and what to expect.  Midway through this process, I have heard from two of the three credit bureaus, I have been setup with a credit rebuilding credit card, and a few dispute letters have been sent to creditors. ECHO has told that me this part of the process would take some time due to waiting on the letters to be received and depending on the legal process with each creditor.

One ECHO Button Customer's Experience

Part 1 of 3: How the ECHO button helps consumers prepare for a home loan.

I’m going through the process with America’s Family Office Or Home Trac (ECHO button) to prepare myself to be in the position to buy a home in the next year or so.  Buying a house is not something that I can afford as of right now; however, after hearing about the ECHO button’s process I was excited that someone was giving me a chance, and I regained hope.

Avoid a Rope-A-Dope with Lender Connect

Posted by Jeff Schneider on Nov 8, 2011 3:30:00 PM

When a consumer begins the long journey of finding a mortgage, they are like a boxer whose career has just started - completely unaware of the proper technique and most likely expending too much energy.


It is your job to act as their trainer. You have to give them the proper tools they need to finish the deal as quickly as possible. After all, the quicker the fight, the quicker you get paid - don't be afraid to give them all of your resources upfront.

MarksmanLMP Is The One That You Want

Posted by Jeff Schneider on Oct 21, 2011 9:53:00 AM

Sound the music. Marksman has evolved.

Lately, Marksman has been feeling like Sandy Olsson from Grease - out of place. We're not a Pink Lady product and pricing engine - we're different. We have a perm and cherry red lipstick.

Long story short, we got a makeover and have expanded into the industry's first Lending Management Platform.


While we didn’t put on skin-tight black pants (although a few of the guys in the office still choose to wear them on casual Fridays), we did give Marksman a snazzy new user interface emphasizing expanded functionality.

3 Ways Mortgage Bankers Can Defeat Boring Emails

Posted by Jeff Schneider on Aug 26, 2011 9:43:00 AM

In this week’s episode, our caped loan crusaders find themselves fighting the genetically mutated generic emails.

Pow! Zoink! Wham! 

Holy vampire fad, Rateman. These emails were once a much more inspired kind of creature, but it appears they're becoming more and more generic, heartless and uninformative. Email campaigns are losing their human compassion at a cataclysmic rate. We once were able to get borrowers to respond, but it appears consumers have stopped responding to the old techniques. And now our leads aren't closing...

Oh look! The rate signal! Let’s talk to the commissioner, hopefully he'll know what’s been going on.

Hey commissioner, what could possibly be causing these email campaigns to turn into mind-numbing drones and make our leads disappear into thin air?

Commissioner: Rateman and Robin, I'm only going to say this once, so for goodness sake listen up! You're going to defeat them with three strategies that will reverse their genetic makeup:
