Allan Keith Tatum, IV
The Business Man:
I am a seasoned professional who has been in the mortgage industry since 1997. My primary position is as an originator. I work with clients to chart the best course as we navigate our way through the mortgage process. Throughout New Jersey I help with all different types of mortgage financing. I assist with things like making a dream come true for a “first time buyer” to walking a client through simple refinance. I am currently the Branch Manager at Residential Home Funding’s office located in Budd Lake, NJ. I attribute my success to the relationships that I’ve built within my industry as well as with my clients. Residential Home Funding and I have forged a strong bond and mutual respect for one another. Their continued cooperation and support affords me the flexibility to meet the ever-changing demands placed on me daily while providing my clients with the best service possible. Over the years I’ve built a solid reputation and strong relationships with clients, colleagues and business associates. Some of those same relationships that I’ve come to rely on continue to prove to be useful in helping me help my clients.
The Family Man:
I am married with 3 wonderful children who won’t stop growing up. I have been a Morris County resident for over 38 years. I’m a homeowner. I give back to the community when I can by sponsoring, coaching and running programs within my town’s recreation department. If coaching youth recreation sports and hanging out with my kids all day paid the bill, that’s what I’d do for a living. Until that happens I’ll stay in the mortgage business. I still play soccer and hockey (supposedly for the exercise).
Provide a service that compels clients to want to refer their closest friends and family.
