GSF Mortgage Welcomes Mortgage Loan Originator in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg, FL, July 30, 2015 –(– GSF Mortgage is pleased to welcome Ray Rau as mortgage loan originator in St. Petersburg, Florida. Although Rau is new to the mortgage industry, he has owned rental properties for more than 20 years. While seeking new opportunities, he joined GSF Mortgage after talking with Warren Herman, who did his mortgage transactions on his rental properties.

“This is a natural fit—I was qualifying tenants and now I’m qualifying borrowers,” says Rau.

Rau starts each transaction with a good handshake, strong eye contact and a smile. He lets everyone tell their story while he listens to help identify their needs and gain their trust. He helps his customers fill out their loan application face-to-face, whether it be at their home, his office or somewhere in between.

Due to owning rental properties, Ray has robust connections with real estate agents. He also does a tremendous amount of networking to help get his name out into the community, as well as some online marketing.
