M R EP O RT | 23 home or refinance their mortgage loan. It's important to mention here that our industry is about to transition from a refinance market to a pur- chase market. Mortgage lenders that lost touch with purchase loan referral sources during the past 18 months will find this transition much more challenging. On the other hand, lenders that encouraged loan officers to stay in touch with their referral partners will be a better choice. When evaluating prospective employers, look for things that make them unique. For example, in order to ensure all voices are heard, some lenders have created advisory boards made up of employees that provide input on the company's strategic direction. Typically, such lenders enjoy high morale and low turnover because everyone feels as though their opinion matters. The Bottom Line W hile many lenders see people come and go quite frequently, there are lenders where loan officers remain the entire length of their ca- reers. Usually, these lenders are quick to pivot with market cycles and have built a strong culture and fiercely protect it. Most importantly, they are the ones that pour every ounce of energy into keeping people happy, engaged, and in a state of constant learning and growth. Anyone who is passionate about their mortgage career deserves to work someplace that is equally pas- sionate about them. Find that place, and you'll no longer wonder when it's time to leave. You'll be too busy having fun. PAUL BUEGE is President and COO of Pewaukee, Wisconsin-based Inlanta Mortgage, a lender licensed in 24 states that is actively seeking new loan professionals.
