Mortgage Loan Officer
A Mortgage Loan Officer (MLO) sells financing for possibly the biggest purchase in a person’s lifetime – their dream home. A MLO gathers and evaluates information on their clients’ current financial status. As a MLO, you would explain the features and benefits of the loan programs available. It’s your job to ensure they select the programs that are best for their situations. Your earning potential is high, whether it’s solely commissions or coupled with a base pay. Most mortgage loan officers can attest to having a flexible work-life balance. Set your own hours and work at your own pace. From job satisfaction to professional development opportunities, mortgage lending offers benefits to anyone willing to work hard.
The appraisal career offers many benefits to anyone willing to work hard. An appraiser establishes the value of a property by careful examination and research. Appraisers can concentrate on a specific type of real estate like commercial or residential. More specific concentrations include hotel, restaurant, and condominium appraisal. Having the entrepreneurial spirit of an appraiser means running your very own business. Appraisers often split their time between the field and the office. You can always count on getting a break from the desk. You could become the expert authority in real estate property values, market trends, and construction inspections.
What if you could build a career around helping people protect what’s most important in life — their health, their family, their home and their future? Insurance agents help people plan ahead and be prepared for their future. As an agent, you work closely with clients to evaluate their health, lifestyle and tolerance for risk and help them select policies and coverage options to meet their unique needs. Insurance agents also maintain long-term relationships with their clients to handle claims, answer questions and re-evaluate coverage as their life situation evolves. The opportunity to be an expert in helping people build and protect their assets and prepare for what’s to come makes a career in insurance one of the most rewarding.
