5. What does a typical day look like for you?
“We begin the morning in a huddle with our Operations team. This is usually led by our VP of Operations.
A better part of the day is spent liaising with lawyers. We discuss details on loan files, and I instruct them with mortgage packages. I also communicate often with the origination and underwriting teams to confirm details about closings. I do this to organize and verify the different aspects of the loan funding process.
I also review mortgage documents to ensure the mortgage is in compliance with our guidelines prior to releasing funds. I also ensure wire and electronic transfers go through smoothly to allow mortgage transactions to be funded on time.”
