Imitation is the best form of flattery
I guess you take imitation as a form of flattery. So when lenders call me and act as if they are buying a house to learn how I do business I take that as a compliment. What it shows me is that I am setting a standard that others are trying to understand and follow. To me this is the best compliment I can receive. And means my clients can rest assured they are getting top notch service and expertise when working with me.
