Going Above and Beyond the Job

It's less my job and more who I am. So answering the phone when it rings is not that hard. Besides, who doesn't want to be the guy who comes riding in on his white horse?"

A Commitment to Developing Professionally

Rich is always reading articles, enrolling in classes, and going to meetings all over California to continue to learn and keep up with changes in the loan services and default servicing market space. He's said, "Loss mitigation is an ever-changing field. I read a lot and I email a lot with other experts. It is imperative that I stay as educated and as current as possible."
