Financing by RE/MAX Ambassadors
Borrowers seeking out a skilled loan professional are typically expecting expertise in a few key areas: Knowledge of different loan products and a personable, easy-going manner to help guide them through what can be a challenging process. When those borrowers work with Pat Bowler and his team, they discover that not only does he excel in each of those areas, but he brings something extra to the table: years of experience as a certified public accountant.
“Prior to getting into the mortgage industry I worked for a large CPA firm,” said Pat. “I decided on a whim after speaking with the man who is now my boss to give lending a shot. I immediately enjoyed it and was able to build up my client base with my existing CPA database.”
Pat had instant success because of his reputation as a trusted resource for his accounting clients. And he has proven over the past ten years that his prior career has prepared him especially well for the rigors of the loan industry.
“It’s amazing how involved you are in people’s lives when you are helping them to buy a home or refinance,” said Pat, who still retains his CPA license and provides tax assistance to his existing customers. “You are dealing with your clients’ largest liability and tax deduction and the decisions you help them make can affect their overall financial planning. I do a lot of work with financial planners and their customers, setting up a mortgage to plan around their lifestyle and fulfill their savings and retirement goals. I think when people work with me they appreciate and recognize that because of my unique experience I have more oversight than the average person.”
What Pat appreciates is the ability to be a conduit for his clients’ happiness. “I cannot emphasize enough how rewarding it is to have the opportunity to help people better themselves, buy their first home, move up to their dream home, and accomplish their goals.
Pat’s commitment to excellence for his clients is evident in his tremendous repeat and referral business, and has also led to numerous awards and accomplishments. In spite of all his accomplishments, Pat feels that his proudest achievement is being able to help make a difference in the lives of his clients. “Being recognized for sales achievements is great, but for me, the real reward and the most special part of this job is helping people, “said Pat, who spends his free time with his wife Cathy or running marathons and triathlons.
“I have dedicated myself to being a financial guide for my clients. I won’t get someone into a loan they can’t afford just so they can become a homeowner. I work hard to find the best loans for my clients and act responsibly to make sure that they are fully informed of all the important details so that they can make responsible decisions. Our ultimate goal is to see our clients grow financially and secure their future by owning a home they can afford.”
