A sausage factory is pretty simple. It takes raw materials and puts them in at one end and a consistent product (sausages) comes out the other end, over and over again. In a mortgage business, we take this concept to help brokers build a team and delivery process, that gets consistent results as efficiently as possible.

In this episode of Mortgage Broker Acceleration, James Veigli and Ash Playsted share the analogy of how building a sausage factory can be likened to how mortgage brokers need to set up their business. They share tips on how to efficiently run and manage your mortgage business without sacrificing a lot of time.

If you want to start running your mortgage business more efficiently, let James and Ash show you how!
