When people ask Scott Shafman what motivates him about the mortgage lending business, his response is quick and simple: “I enjoy helping clients and assisting them in their financial goals. A home is typically your largest asset, and it is very important that my clients are aware of all of the options that are available to them. I take my responsibility seriously. My clients look to me for expert advice, so I am always putting myself in my clients’ shoes when I recommend a loan scenario.”
Scott’s mission is to help educate his clients, as it is extremely important in this every-changing and evolving mortgage industry to know what options are available. Everyone’s circumstances are unique and Scott feels that it is his duty to ensure that his clients are given the best rates and loan options available for their financial situation. With the different layers of risk that have been implemented through current lending modules, it is extremely important to make sure that all the variables are considered before Scott presents options to his clients.
