WHAT PLAYS SCORE GOALS? Every successful team has goals, as do its players. The mid-year review is time to reflect and plan to do more of the plays that score, and eliminate those that don’ t. What’ s you plan?

MID-YEAR REVIEW – Have you accomplished your goals for 2014? Now is the time to review, re-tool and re-commit. by Kenn Bartley, SVP Marketing & Business Development

Got Goals? As the World Cup action is swelling pride in the home team and interest in soccer to new heights in the USA, the marketing team has been meeting with each originator to go over what you’ ve done so far this year and learn what goals you have for the remainder of the year. The team is putting together plans to help each of you achieve those goals. Happily, most originators have some specific goals to achieve, but the goal-setting process can be improved, and the goals –specific goals with projected results –can be set higher. Review, re-tool and re-commit The marketing review is just a piece of the overall goal and objectives process. If you haven’ t already, write down your goals for the year. Goals must be achievable, accountable and trackable. Once your goals are set, review with your team and run it by your family. Get everyone that matters to you on the same page and cheering for your success. After your goals are reviewed and agreed upon it’ s time to put them into action. Get the tools to make the goals happen. This included marketing, but also can be training, mentorship, and of course, a budget. Whatever it is, do

Not go at it alone, or on the cheap. You’ ll only let yourself and your fans down in the long-run. Tools in place with a map on how to make it all happen, now you have to commit to make it happen. No matter what, stick to the plan, do what you say you’ ll do, record the results –good and not so great –and use it as a guideline for future goals, objectives, plans and performance. Have a Playbook Your written plan is your playbook. And some need help putting that together. To that end we have some exciting plans to develop a 2015 LoanStar Playbook, with the help of national author and speaker Bill Sparkman, for release at our National Sales Conference in November (see Save the Date on the next pages). In the meantime, write your goals down and get with your sales manager to help you finish 2014 strong!

IN THE NEWS LoanStar Home Lending Press Clippings

CHRISMAN REPORT, Thursday, April 17, 2014

How does a new mortgage bank more than double in size in its first three months of existence? "For LoanStar Home Lending, born and raised in Portland, Oregon just last November, the recipe is quite simple: Take some of the longest tenured mortgage pros on the West Coast, blend with lots of capital from Texas, engage top tier correspondent investors, add a robust dose of marketing done for the originators, and top it off with an efficiency culture where originators originate, processors process, and marketing markets. ‘ Our vision of how LoanStar helps originators grow their business is by concentrating on originating loans and building relationships, and is attracting nearly every originator in all our markets,' says Mike Baldwin, President & CEO. Baldwin is building his fourth mortgage bank in the last 30 years and has a regional 'who's who' on the management team, including John Giagiari, SVP Production for California, who has already brought on eight originators to LoanStar and matched them with Intero Real Estate offices in Northern California. LoanStar is hiring aggressively to fill or start branches in the Puget Sound, Portland, Southern California, Boise and Phoenix area. Contact Kenn Bartley, SVP Business Development at kbartley@GoLoanStar.com for more information. CHRISMAN REPORT, Monday, April 21, 2014

On the jobs front, last week the commentary mentioned the explosive growth of LoanStar Home Lending but did not mention that SVP California Production John Giagiari is also aggressively looking for originators in Northern California. John said "I have seven more Intero Real Estate offices to place originators and need to fill those spots immediately!" John can be reached at Jgiagiari@GoLoanStar.com. LoanStar Home Lending CEO Mike Baldwin has assembled a proverbial all-star team out west to grow the company. LoanStar leaders include Les Bedford (lbedford@GoLoanStar.com) as the SVP Production for Washington. Les is the 2014 President of the Washington Mortgage Lenders Association and over the last 35 years has built and managed successful, high producing teams. Greg Haase (ghaase@GoLoanStar.com) is the SVP Production for Oregon and Idaho and is expanding to new digs in Vancouver, WA and opening a new branch in Boise in May. And in Southern California, Marcelo Curt (mcurt@GoLoanStar.com) recently joined LoanStar as that region's Sales Manager and is building teams throughout SoCal. "Contact any of these seasoned sales management gurus to find out why LoanStar is growing like wildfire on the West Coast!"
