In this episode I have a fun conversation with my good buddy Alec Hanson.  We get back to basics and talk about how each of us got started in the mortgage business, and how those messages apply to today.  We also talk about how to kill it in 2021 and what trends are coming and how to capitalize on them.

Constantly striving to improve, he began his career in origination in 2004 funding over $85M and was named Rookie of the Year by Scotsman’s Guide. Every subsequent year Hanson landed on Scotsman’s Top 200 Originator list finishing his best year at $185M.
