Lender Panel with Realtors at GKAR [VIDEO]

Posted by Dan Moyle on Fri, May 22, 2015

Real estate agents and licensed REALTORS® work in the housing market every day. These professional men and women understand the market, listings, real estate issues and much more. When it comes to the financial part - the mortgage - they work with mortgage professionals.
