"I’ve been enjoying the e-mail notifications, but never took the time to go to the website. I tend to get embroiled in loans and put off things I know I "should do". I have been going to the website throughout the day this week and have saved money for my borrowers and myself. It’s much more proactive than waiting and wondering if I will get an e-mail to see what the market is doing. " -- Jamie O’Neal from CA(10/22/2009)"Today was my first day using Rate Alert and it has already paid off! I was floating a $175,000 deal from last evening. The market opened strong and the recommendation was to float until 1:00pm. At 12:34pm a Lock Alert was sent and the MBS Tracker jumped from -6 to -20. I went ahead and locked my deal and within 1 hour I had 4 investor re-prices for the worse. I ended up $357 to the good on the very 1st day with just 1 deal. That proved to be a great return on my investment." -- Frank Ruzicka from Conerstone Mortgage Inc.(1/13/2010)"SO helpful. Thanks for the great information!!! I look forward to a good year and Rate Alert will certainly play a big roll in my success" -- Cristie C. from Kirkland, WA(1/12/2011)"I couldn't survive without Rate Alert!" -- Hary M. from St Louis, MO(1/14/2010)"I recently switched from a more expensive rate alert service. Your new site is awesome! I now have the confidence to know when to lock my loans via text, e-mail or online and so much more, all at much better price. And the new MBS Tracker rocks! I love the trend lines and the levels of support. Outstanding!" -- Ray Blindauer, CA(10/5/2009)

"I used to spend an hour or so reviewing the market activity and news on several different web sites to try to ascertain which way the market was moving and what forces were driving the market. Now you do it all for me! I recouped the cost of the report within the 1st month - I would have locked a loan but waited one day based upon your analysis and gained .375% of a point! Yours is a great service which I would recommend to all serious loan officers."
