Frustrated Realtor Fights Back. Take THAT... You Nasty GFE !

It appears the time has finally come.  Actually, we haven't been screaming about it for ALL that long.  Just a short while, really.

But... how much longer can we put UP with this... until we just absolutely lose control and fight back ?

Well... Here Goes !

As we all know... the Federal National Mortgage Association... FNMA... we call Fannie Mae

And... the Government National Mortgage Association... GNMA... we call Ginnie Mae

And... the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation... FHLMC... we call Freddie Mac

So... in the spirit of these nicknames... which are "almost" acronyms... not quite, but almost...

I now propose a new name... again, not quite an "acronym"... but I think it will work just the same.

The brand new form of the Good Faith Estimate... has not been well received.  It is confusing, it throws our timing for transactions out of whack... and... to be honest... the Good Faith Estimate... the GFE... has simply become a pain in the butt !

I propose... that from now on... we refer to the Good Faith Estimate... the GFE... as "The Goofie."

So... ladies and gentlemen, boyz and girlz... the next time you call your Loan Officer... and want a Good Faith Estimate... remember this... 

Just say... "Hi Brenda... this is Karen Anne Stone.  Regarding my buyers Jason and Donna Homebuyer on the property at 234 Honey Bun Lane... could you send me a Goofie?"

Whaddya think ?  Me... I think it just might have possiblilties :)

I have been a Cavs fan for a very long time. Since the beginning, actually. Wednesday was, at least for me, a very, very sad day. Zydrunas was sent to the Wizards. Big Z has been a Cav for… I think it's been twelve years now. I… more
One of My Favorite "Snow Stories" from Cleveland…

Reading about the two feet of snow that has just inundated much of the east coast… brought to mind a silly story from my past… that I thought I would share. There I was… about twenty years ago… a Realtor in Mentor, Ohio. It has snowed… more
