I enjoyed the work environment. It was fast paced where we were encouraged to make sales calls and meet with Realtors, Divorce Attorneys, CPA's etc.
Loan Officer (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 13, 2018
I have spent the past 20+ years as a loan officer in Atlanta, GA, but have decided to return to my hometown of Portland, Maine.
A typical day at Bank of England consisted of me making at least a dozen sales calls daily then scheduling meetings and appointments with various Realtors, Attorneys, CPA's, etc. to get referrals from them. I would then meet with the clients and work up loan proposals for them to review. From there, I originated the loan and begin the loan process.
I learned various additional computer skills and sales techniques. Our branch was one of nearly 60 nationwide and we were consistently a top producer. My branch manager will forever be one of my closest friends.
The hardest part of the job honestly was the Atlanta traffic. With over 6 million people in Greater Atlanta traffic is typically heavy throughout the day. This could make it difficult and frustrating to schedule and get to meetings. Plus my commute was nearly an hour and a half each way.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting a loan closed on time with all parties being 100% satisfied.
Excellent work environment
New government regulations have made the loan process very tedious.
