I’ve heard of that phenomenon in Austin.
In the Bay Area of Northern California were able to completely eradicate that kind of troublesome weather.
My company was very kind when they confirmed what I had already been seeing on reports: Business is slooooooooooooow. Executed contracts for my entire region? Two. Up through first quarter I had been closing 18 - 20 units per month; about half that through the second quarter… And then, new home sales went off a cliff.
Hey, it’s a cyclical business. Plus, I wasn’t sure how much longer I was willing to maintain their super-corporate dance, regardless (“What’s this I hear about you not using the new cover letter on the TPS report?”)
They thanked me for the highest capture and service scores in the region (the only one > 90%) and the ‘heavy lifting’ - but there is just no business right now.
Whereas in February I was the last man standing, they have now shuttered their loan production in the Bay Area.
Meh. Win some, lose some. I don’t mind being shoved back into semi-retirement… though, I gotta say, it’s the first time I’ve ever been let go in over 30 years of origination… and while it’s empowering to resign, it’s still a kick in the crotch when THEY break up with YOU, first.
Now, the worst thing possible has happened: my darling sweetheart is taking me to Home Depot to select bits for the back yard project list(s) she has for me.
Soon, Imma really have to work
! The hard kind, damn it.
