CE Class

Demystifying the Mortgage Process for REALTORS®

April 21 9am-12pm (3CE)

Michael Smit


Smit, a national N.A.R. Instructor, wrote this class on mortgage finance for specifically for Realtors.  As a mortgage lender for 18 years and now a full time Realtor, “Smit” teaches this class with the goal of how to “vet” a lender’s “Preapproval” letter.  This class will show how the lender’s timeline parallels the Realtor’s timeline; understand the nomenclature of lending terms; determine if the lender has or is doing their job (“Homework”) and determine if the lender’s letter is true, accurate and reliable.

Thank you, Ginny, for being a Strategic Partner!
I’m passionate about the mortgage business because I get the opportunity to meet so many interesting people and help them finance what is often the biggest investment of their lives.  I enjoy being their trusted advisor and helping them achieve financial success, whether it’s by purchasing or refinancing their own home or an investment property.  I pride myself in being available and responsive to my clients’ needs.
I’ve been happily working with borrowers since 2001, and I was a realtor for eleven years before then. That combination allows me to be a resource to the realtors I work with, and I especially enjoy training and coaching new agents.
My husband, Jim, and I have two grown sons – Leland, an experienced home builder in Portland, and Halsey, a rescue helicopter pilot in San Antonio.  I’ve ridden horses all of my life—a passion my husband supports from a distance! Together we love camping, boating, biking, travelling, hiking and cooking.
