Creating a pipeline of new customers is the dream… and the challenge. Yet Mac Church has done it successfully for years. Even having switched companies and worked primarily as his own source of leads, Mac has consistently been a top producer. He will share with us his best tips and tricks, the processes and tools he uses, and the hard lessons he has learned along the way so we can avoid those too!

Speaker: Mac Church

Mac Church has been in the mortgage business since 2004 and has closed over 3000 loans. He has been on many Top Producer lists over the past 15 years – both regionally and nationally. Seeing a customer receive the keys to their new home and seeing the sense of accomplishment on their faces makes the process so rewarding. Candor, integrity, and dedication are attributes that allow Mac to create a long-lasting relationship with his customers well beyond the mortgage transaction. You can learn more about Mac on his website at Atlantic Coast Mortgage.
