Occupation: Owner of True Closings.
Most memorable comment from a client: “Where have you been all my life?”
Describe yourself: Honest, authentic, and goofy.
Philosophy of life: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5
Favorite part of the job: I feel blessed to be able to play a part in a huge milestone in someone’s life. Whether that is through a couple buying, selling, or refinancing their home. Although all closings start off with the important mortgage stuff they are signing off on, most closings tend to turn more into us sitting around a table exchanging life stories while going over the paperwork at the same time. This makes a closing a lot of fun and interesting. Besides playing a small part in a major life decision, a very close second would be meeting so many interesting people on a daily basis.
Greatest career accomplishment: Business relationships that develop into strong personal relationships. It’s great when you walk into an office and you hear four different voices, each from a different direction, say ‘Hey Dillon!’ It’s crazy to think that we were just strangers two months ago and now I’m invited to their son’s second birthday party.
Hidden talents: Given that I am on the road quite a bit, I have mastered the art of eating while driving. (Kids, this skill was developed out of desperation and necessity. Do not try this at home).
Guilty pleasure: I have a late-night sweet tooth that will not be satisfied unless there is a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough involved.
Advice to my younger self: Don’t plan your life. Make the right decision in the present moment and an amazing life will unfold.
