What is one of the nicest things one of your reviewers wrote about you on your Stik page?
Here’s a great review I got from a client:
“Clint was our Realtor when we bought our first house. He was very patient with us as we put offers in on 4 different houses only to have them turned down. Finally we found one that has been our home and sanctuary for the last 5 years. He did an excellent job in helping us through the process of buying a home since we were first time buyers and had no idea what we were doing. He was honest, reliable and never pushy. He helped us get a fantastic deal on a home in a great neighborhood that I am not sure we could have gotten with someone else.”

Can you tell a story about a time that you really went above and beyond for a client?
I had a client that was going through a divorce, a bankruptcy, and various other challenges all at the same time. He needed to sell his home, but the bankruptcy and divorce created complications for the transaction. I spent hours on the phone with the bankruptcy trustee and divorce lawyers negotiating a deal that made everyone happy and we were able to complete the transaction. My client was extremely grateful in the end, and it felt amazing to work through so many obstacles and finish the deal.
What advice would you give to someone just starting out in the mortgage industry today?
Be patient. It takes time to learn the business and develop relationships. If you focus on the client and not the commission, you will have a long and successful career.
If you could board a plane for anywhere in the world right now, where would it be and why?
Greece. I’ve always wanted to see the beaches and the historical sites there.
