Partnered by Mortgage Choice

Mortgage Choice Ormeau franchisee Deslie Taylor became a billion-dollar broker – settling $1 billion in loans – after her 13th year in business. Given that she’s writing large volumes of smaller loan sizes, having a systematic process and structure has been critical to her success, she says.

In this special episode of our new Billion Dollar Broker series, partnered by Mortgage Choice, we catch up with Deslie and Mortgage Choice’s director of national sales, David Zammit, to find out:

  • How Deslie hit the $1 billion milestone
  • The critical elements she thinks top-performing brokers need
  • How Mortgage Choice is supporting high-volume brokers achieve their goals.
