SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Michael Carpenter, one of Seattle’s leading mortgage industry and subject matter experts, announced today he is expanding his practice to homeowners, buyers, and sellers seeking reliable, accurate information on today’s credit crisis and prevailing economic climate. Recognized for his professional competence and real-world experience, the availability of Mr. Carpenter to answer questions and counsel those most uncertain and baffled by the existing financial market fallout, reflects his ongoing commitment to consistently provide a seamless transfer of knowledge and unmatched expertise to clients, educators, and the media.
“Most of us have never seen a credit crisis quite like this in our life before,” says Mr. Carpenter. “The truth is, there is some misinformation and distrust adding fuel to the very real and legitimate concerns and fears of homeowners, buyers, and seller in our current downturn economy. I see a definite need for people to take a vivid look at the root of today’s financial crisis — and give them a place to turn, ask questions, and receive ‘real time’ answers and resources on a local, regional and national level. I think this is particularly important to do because there is an emotional component to today’s economic uncertainty that is hitting people very hard; often leaving them unable to make informed decisions.”
A highly experienced mortgage industry professional and educator, Mr. Carpenter holds a MA from University of Houston. Specializing in conventional, government and construction loans, he is known for his sense of humor and for consistently delivering on his motto: “taking the mystery out of mortgages.” Now earning a second well-earned reputation for “taking the mystery out of the credit crisis,” he is encouraging people in both the public and private sector to contact him via phone or email with their specific questions and challenges. While educating those who contact him with timely nuggets of accurate information, he does so with a sense of optimism.
“Most people don’t know that mortgage companies sustain an average loss of $58,000 nationwide when foreclosure occurs. People sometimes forget that mortgage companies and mortgage professionals are in the business of providing and sustaining mortgages — not in the business of owning or selling homes. We really want to help consumers purchase homes and keep them. Beyond that, I like to see people thrive in all economic environments. That’s why I feel knowledge-sharing is key and why I encourage people to ask questions.”
A firm believer that most people ‘don’t know what they don’t know’ when making important decisions, Mr. Carpenter stresses the need for and use of, a market specialist in any real estate or financial transaction in today’s world. “If you ‘don’t know what you don’t know,’ good-outcome decision-making is hard to do; and poor decision-making outcomes often result,” says Mr. Carpenter. “Simply put, a specialist’s knowledge and experience is important in any economic climate.”
