ALAMO, Calif. – September 22, 2015 – RPM Mortgage, Inc. (RPM) is proud to announce that Executive Vice President and National Sales Manager Cindy Ertman has once again been named as one of the 100 Most Influential Mortgage Executives by Mortgage Executive Magazine for 2015. This is the third year in a row that Ertman has received this award for her continued leadership and significant contributions to the mortgage industry.
Each year, Mortgage Executive Magazine recognizes mortgage executives who have built their companies and supported their clients and employees through dedication, hard work and a commitment to excellence. The winning executives were asked to provide their insights on the opportunities and challenges in today’s mortgage industry. Ertman spoke about education, confidence, and systems:
“Confidence is king! The true opportunity for mortgage originators today is to position yourself as an expert and really get clear on the unique value you provide to your referral partners. As most loan agents carry seasoned status these days, the key to building new referral partners is positioning yourself as an expert by educating the market on the unique loan products you offer and your ability to move quickly and navigate challenged loans effectively. Strong systems are the key to confidence, and conveying your ‘wins’ consistently will help you build market share in today’s environment.”
Ertman manages the sales and operational staff for the Manhattan Beach branch and serves on its leadership team. Wearing several hats at RPM, Ertman is committed to the continuing education and training of loan officers and truly loves the teaching aspect of her role. She also serves on the faculty of Mortgage Success Source, the nation’s largest mortgage training company, and devotes time supporting and educating loan officers across the country.
In late 2014, Ertman launched The Defining Difference, a success based coaching and training company committed to training people on Choice Mastery and how the power of intentional choice can create a defining difference to move them from a life of status quo – to living life by design.
