Meet Nate Carver, Freedom Club Member

Nate Carver, a loan officer based in North Texas, started with a string of months without closing a single deal. He had hit a low professionally, but that didn’t deter him from his passion for helping individuals find their dream homes. Sailing through the tough times was never easy, but like any successful professional, Carver took these challenging months in stride and began strategizing ways to reboot his career.

From Ground Zero

It’s important to know where you have been to appreciate where you stand currently. Around this time last year, Carver was going through a slump, closing zero units. But as they say, failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor, and there was plenty in store for him moving forward, as this scenario drastically changed within less than a year.

The Turning Point

Fast forward to today, Carver’s fortunes have turned around significantly. The three months preceding December 2023 have seen him closing seven, nine, and ten units consecutively. It’s an increase that can’t be quantified as he maneuvered his way up from no closes to double-digit closes. What’s more notable is that this significant rise comes in a month historically considered to be slower – December. 

Carver’s Impactful Earnings

Carver’s units predominantly average a loan amount of $300,000. If we make a conservative estimate of $3,000 per loan as earnings, the amount totals a significant climb on the income ladder. It reflects a substantial financial shift from no income to a potential of $30,000 for the month, thanks to the ten closed deals. 

Remember, It’s not about how many times one falls, but how one rises each time that matters. As Nate Carver’s journey demonstrates, one can always turn around any professional situation with commitment, strategy, and, of course, a little bit of luck. So, embrace the challenges; they’re just stepping stones toward success.
