Michael Kerogosien is a loan officer dedicated to providing interested consumers with the loans they need to obtain their dream homes. He offers a variety of services including financing homes, obtaining loans, refinancing, and purchasing of homes. Mr. Kergosien stated the following about his business model, "we try to stay local. Most of our business is in the local community...we want to grow and we continually want to progress in the area of growth. Our goal is to have as many realtor relationships as we can, reach out to consumers, and serve consumers in the area."
Michael Kerogosien obtains leads through several different avenues including referrals from real estate agents, title companies, and consumers. He went on to state, "I would say most of the business we get are from consumers we've helped in the past."
Mr. Kergosien then explained the typical sales process for a consumer working directly with him. The consumer would first need to fill out an application, and they would need to have their credit qualified. Once they have gone through the pre-qualification process the consumer will receive a loan package that describes their particular loan in detail. From that point, "borrower would receive updates on a weekly basis until the load is closed out." CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – MICHAEL KERGOSIEN / AMERICAN HOME FREE MORTGAGE
