Professional Summary

Fast-paced, goal-oriented  individual. I am a fast learner, very trainable, an accomplished communicator with excellent customer relations skill. I have a vibrant personality, a strong focus, and a track record for delivering results. I enjoy an  in-depth knowledge of and have been extensively trained in the  mortgage servicing industry, skip tracing, private investigation, and the wonderful and colorful world of the collections industry. I have a passion for these industries. I like to keep up to date with all national and federal guidelines and the changes happening pertaining to all above as well as government programs (even if it's on my own time) so that I'm always compliant. I've learned to implement strong sales techniques in my career in order to both help people save their homes from foreclosure, and or discuss liquidation options regarding their homes which is not always an easy decision or discussion to have. I also materialize some of those same set of sales skills to liquidate information while skip tracing in order to provide information to clients while remaining compassionate to the consumer. I'm a people person. I just can't help it, I love them, and usually they can sense that and it pays is spades. The power of just one persons positive persona can change a person's entire day and create a bond. I can also be firm if duty calls for that. I am experienced in management, supervision and team leadership. The teams I've lead can attest that they have always been happy, well trained, and truly feel as though I dedicated the time it took to help them succeed and achieve their goals as well as the company goals while I stressed compliance. I also have a background and knowledge in several types of law, including immigration law, breach of contract law, collections law, and family law.
