The Man Leading Our Team to Success

I have seen how great managers can challenge, motivate, and inspire people to do spectacular things, so I continually strive to be a great manager for those on my team. I believe if you are going to achieve sustainable success as a mortgage professional, it is critical to be aligned with a team of people that can provide the support and accountability to drive those results.

“I have been at Goldwater for over 6 months and honestly it has felt like a family atmosphere since I started working here. Mark is always willing to step in and help when help is needed and any questions that are there are always answered. If he does not have the solution, he will do whatever is needed to get the solution for you. There is constant support daily as Mark is always there for us to encourage us, support us, and motivate us to keep pressing on and moving forward.
