    Starting today Trident will give you a free AVM (automated valuation method) appraisal to help you determine what your house is worth or what a good offer range is on a place you're looking to buy. Physical appraisals are the best but cost $450-750. An AVM can get you to the 90% solution. They can even be accepted in lieu of a physical appraisal on some streamline refinances. AVMs are based on comparable sales or houses on the market in your area which is what an appraiser runs their numbers off. I think this will really help you guys out get top dollar when you sell and not get ripped off when you buy. It'll also help you to determine if you can do a cash-out refinance to pull some equity out or get your mortgage insurance removed. Happy to do this for you guys! You guys have been awesome to Trident and I always reward loyalty! Marty E-mail Jon (jk@mythl.com) with the property address and he'll shoot the AVM your way. I attached a sample AVM for you to check out. They're awesome! Sample AVM.pdf

    Thank you Sir and also thank you for making the effort to get back on baseops to post this! I’ll definitely make sure to recognize Michael and Kayla! They saved the day not me. I’m at a Navy carrier pilot convention/reunion in Reno right now with my team and the USAA rep told me he doesn’t even do his mortgages with USAA.

    Excited to share that Trident has partnered with an amazing aviation relocation service to make your move/purchase go even smoother. You now have free access to a vetted network of real estate agents across the country who are pilots, pilots' wives, and military spouses. The Realtors we've worked with so far have been top notch! The owner (Tracy) is an American Airlines pilot's wife who shares our goal of making the home buying process as stress free as possible. Let me or Jon know if you'd like help finding a Realtor in the area you're going to. Marty 850-346-0250 marty@mythl.com Jon 850-377-1114 jk@mythl.com

    Thank you Sir! Happy you got a great deal for your family and that we could play a small piece in it. It’s definitely not all about the money. We honestly love doing this...I think I’d go crazy only flying my airline schedule without Trident as my creative outlet. Marty Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    [emoji106] thank you Sir! We honestly only want the best for each of you and your families. There are too many “smoke and mirrors” in lending and some businesses exploit that. I think that’s unethical...when you reach out to my team you always get the best offer we can do right out the gate. None of this going back and forth to management after demanding you prove via a fee sheet what another lender’s offered either. I don’t even ask what another lender is offering. I’ve been seeing one lender offering higher rates to you if they know you’re not shopping around with us, but then dropping their rate if you are shopping around with us too. How is that ethical or honestly caring about you. That’s just trying to make as much money as you can, when you can and take advantage of good peoples‘ lack of experience in the loan world. We trust you and take you at your word and will give you as much as we can without going into the red right off the bat. I promise I’ll stop ranting. I’ve been a little pissed this week at some other lenders’ business practices. I hate seeing what I’d consider my “brothers and sisters” in arms getting taken advantage of. Marty

    Warning soapbox: Please, please bounce your rate quotes off us or another lender before locking with a big bank. Just this week I've had two guys switch over to Trident from a huge national bank that built its brand on serving those who serve. They clearly aren't in that business anymore because these guys both had excellent credit and no issues yet their rates were .5% and .625% higher than what Trident was doing. The ethics behind that business practice blow my mind. I don't care what lender you sanity check with (doesn't have to be Trident), but please don't just trust someone blindly because of their slogan, marketing or how they use to operate. You guys deserve to get the best/cheapest money and amazing customer service from whoever that lender ends up being. Rant over...thanks for listening! Marty

    Thank you Sir! Elena is truly amazing and she is one of my 3 processors dedicated to the baseops team that I setup and that Jon is leading. We want each of you to get the best service/rates possible because that’s what we’d want for our families and you guys deserve nothing less. Vets/pilots taking care of fellow vets/pilots...you guys are the best clients we get! Thanks! Marty

    In general I’ve been doing 3.875 on 30yr VAs in FL last week with no lender fee. Every loan is different so I’d have to run a quote to get exactly what you’re looking for. 15yr VAs were about the same last I checked, might be able to get down to 3.75% on a 15. The refi market is pretty dead these days with rates rising, but if anyone is sitting 4.5% or above it’s still viable. Marty

    Great news! Last week we were successful in getting approval to use first year pay for airline new hires vs training pay which is significantly lower. It happened that the underwriter working a file was an army wife who went above and beyond to speak directly to a high level admin official who was married to an airline pilot. They saved the documentation for future use for Delta Pilots specifically but other airline new hires will also benefit. The documentation is specific to VA loans but we should be able to do the same for conventional borrowers. This will give you more buying power since training pay isn’t an accurate gauge of what a 1st year airline pilot will make. Training pay shouldn’t limit the house a multi-million $ career airline pilot can afford. I’m also happy to announce I’m bringing on Jon as a loan originator on Monday. He’s a 13yr AF AC-130 evaluator pilot who is currently transitioning to the airlines and will be a reservist at AFSOC HQ. I wanted you guys to have a younger AF guy who’s more in touch with what you guys are going through vs just an old Navy guy like me. I’ve given him the latitude to give “owner” rates/pricing so nothing changes when you work with him. I’m not going anywhere and I’ll be working hand and hand. As always keep the questions coming. Jon and I will work together to make our service even better for you guys since that’s what you deserve! Cheers! Marty

    BLUF: Shop around Had a long time client of mine ask for a home insurance agent recommendation today. His current agent was quoting $3K for a new policy and one of the guys I recommended was able to do the same exact coverage for $1.9K. I've seen this type of thing play out in every aspect of a real estate transaction. We try to always get people the best deal on third party items, but that's not the case with every lender out there. A lot of time it's just path of least resistance...general contractors are notorious for this with purchasing, but it applies to home inspections, title work/title insurance, home insurance, real estate agent fees, etc. I'd highly recommend you always shop around for all third party services and don't let a lender or realtor push you in one direction. You should be getting three recommendations for any service you need if you ask a lender or realtor. Beware of the classic referral trick in real estate where people just just recommend their friends who will then refer back to them in return even though the client isn't getting the best deal...it'd make you sick if you knew how common that practice was. No one cares more about your money/family's financial health than yourself. Marty

    Thank you Sir! Jen is awesome and Rachel’s military wife gene just kicked it automatically when she heard your wife was hospitalized. I honestly just sit back and watch the magic happen. All their initiative. We certainly appreciate everyone’s business. Your business has enabled us to give back a lot to the community this year and we look forward to serving even more people in the future! Marty
