CRM AND MARKETING EXPERTISE
San Diego, CA
A CRM plan is necessary for your mortgage business to thrive.
Here’s the thing: A CRM provides immediate visibility for high–value opportunities, increased lead generation, and marketing functions. And it’s a necessary tool to increase your business based on your contacts’ needs and interactions.

Donna manages and coaches some of the mortgage business’s most successful loan officers who rely on her not only to keep in touch with past clients, Realtors and affinity partners, but also to provide mortgage compliant content to them to distribute.

the end itself. This is especially important when making decisions about what data fields to collect and
fill that will serve best in the short and long run.
Many people feel pressured to fill out every single field they see from the outset. Let’s release some of
