About Shawn Perkins
Making a Difference One Client at a Time
So Who Is This Your Favorite Lender Guy?
From the first day I went into business as a mortgage
professional my primary focus has been creating value for my clients. The
value that I create for my clients has evolved and increased in magnitude over the
years as I have grown in my own understanding and grasp of financial matters. I
have transformed my business from that of a traditional loan officer to that of
a professional mortgage strategist and financial educator. I have earned highly
coveted mortgage industry designations such as CMPS (Certified Mortgage Planning
Specialist), CMP (Certified Mortgage Planner), CMA (Certified Mortgage Advisor),
and CLA (Certified Liability Advisor).
I have been and continue to be involved in a variety of business coaching and
business development programs. I credit much of my success to the people
I surround myself with: be it supportive family, close friends, industry icons that
have befriended me or my many dedicated clients. I embrace a Japanese business philosophy
called kaizen, which means continuous and incremental improvement. I believe
this philosophy is as critical in my personal life as it is for my business. I am
a voracious reader, whether it's learning how to be a better person, husband, father,
boss, or businessman. I am committed to learning how to transcend my limiting beliefs
about what is possible in all areas of my life. I've discovered that the only
thing that holds up my success is what I believe I cannot do.
In addition to working hard at building my business, I am a dedicated family man. I cherish the time I spend with my wife of over 22 years, Sherry, my 20-year-old son, Shelby, and my adorable 8-year-old daughter, Savannah. I enjoy tinkering in the yard, doing small fix-it projects around the house, and coaching my daughter's soccer team. I am an avid bowler and have bowled competitively for over 20 years.
I like to share my knowledge
and I make it a practice to give away whatever I can.
I am a charter faculty member of
The National Institute of Financial Education
an organization which seeks out exceptional leaders, educators, and professionals
to donate their time to educate consumers throughout the United States via live
online classes, recorded web classes, and live local events. Faculty members share
their knowledge and experience with consumers in three key areas: Real Estate, Investing,
and Borrowing. I am a certified trainer and teach continuing education classes to
real estate agents, financial planners, and CPAs.
I am an instructor for
which is an organization dedicated to educating aspiring homeowners on the homebuying
process as well as providing them with the tools to make the experience a positive
to go to The Smart Homebuyer site where you can find out about class locations,
dates and times, have access to online classes as well as other valuable resources.
I am committed to delivering world-class service to my clients.
I take great pride in operating a referral-based practice. I consider myself very
fortunate to have clients who understand the value I create and consistently return
to me for their financing needs. Those same clients actively refer their family,
friends, and work associates.
I hope you find this site a valuable resource for borrowing smart and realizing
your full potential.
Now that you know a little bit more about who I am
to find out how to
to arrange a strategy session.
