Diamond, more than likely your customer will dictate the coverage they require for you to become their vendor. Regardless, you should work with an insurance agent, explain to him/her your endeavor, your customers requirements and heed his/her advice.Ok, I am all up for a little sarcasm, but some of you were so rude & mean! Especially the walmart comment. That was so uncalled for. Some people come to blogs to get information because they are new to the whole Mortgage Field Services industry just like you were before you heard about it. Some of the information is not available on the internet and alot of ebooks written just to make a quick dollar are so full of bad information. Some of them will tell you that you don't need insurance, or that you only need insurance for certain companies, or you only need insurance in certain states. Let's try to help others instead of making people feed so bad. If you think it's stupid and you don't have anything good to say, why not just ignore the question and don't respond to it? I think some of you owe an apology. Just because we are fortunate enough to know about the business does not mean that everybody is an expert. This is still a new industry that alot of people have never heard of until 2008 and 2009. Please don't be so mean to newbies.
I'm sorry, but that was the most ignorant response I could have ever read. Are you serious??? I really hope you were just being sarcastic because it basically sounds like you are afraid of women coming into the business so you'd rather make them feel bad so that you can try to scare them off. And/or you honestly are pig-headed enough to basically imply that this is a "man's job???" Who raised you??? Scratch that, you must be either old and can't get with the millenium, or you just like to make ignorant comments in blogs. Maybe blogs just are not for you...just a thought. Parallel the catty...??? NOT!!! And we're not on a contruction site, so it does not apply here where people come to network and learn or grow. It sounds like you are saying...be ready to get them before they get you. I don't think the blog was made to hurt you or anyone else. Why be so insecure? Take it easy, relax a little. Just because women are rising does not mean that you should be so scared that you will be out of a job, it just means you have a little more competition to rise up to. Fight fire with water....just step your game up and become more competitive, not hateful, bitter, and ugly. The more you hate, the more you lose.Crystal,
Unfortunately men (especially in manual trades) and our "rude & mean" retorts often parallel the catty and subtly cruel interchanges among some women. It is just a sad reality of life that many of us haven't yet out grown the playground environment.
It exists, nay... abounds, on nearly every construction job, and it has evolved (regressed and degenerated?) into a mark of manhood to not only be able to readily dish it out, but to also become calloused and thick skinned to the point that it is almost second nature.
No excuse. Not really even a good reason. But just the way it seems to be.
I'm not the person who was asking. I knew the answer but saw that a few really didn't want to help the person with a simple yes or no. It was just mean is all. There are many of us who will answer and help others who have been misinformed, but there are others who love to either steer someone in the wrong direction, or bully them into staying away from the field. Very sad.Diamond, more than likely your customer will dictate the coverage they require for you to become their vendor.
