Conor Bodaken, a loan officer, begins by emphasizing the need to evaluate the bigger picture and make decisions based on the client’s specific circumstances. He highlights that during the financial crisis in 2008-2009, many decisions were made without this evaluation, resulting in negative consequences.
Conor also shares his approach to client interactions, which starts by establishing the right mindset. He prioritizes understanding the client’s short-term and long-term goals, even if it extends beyond home financing. By taking a holistic approach and uncovering what truly matters to the client, he can make decisions that align with their overall home-buying objectives.
Furthermore, the episode highlights the significance of considering a client’s unique circumstances and goals when making home financing decisions. By doing so, he can ensure that he provides tailored advice and increases the likelihood of success for his clients.
Conor Bodaken also emphasizes his role as a counselor in the financial planning process. He understands that financial decisions are not solely about numbers and finances, but also about the fears and emotions accompanying them. He stresses the importance of addressing these fears and making the planning process less focused on finances and more on understanding the client’s situation and goals.
Conor shared: “If I need to be your counselor, I’ll put that hat on and talk through things. We can make it less about the finances. Let’s get into the fears around this sort of stuff. There’s a lot going into making these big decisions, I would say those different markets are the folks that I’ve been able to connect with the best and have been able to serve the best.”
