There’s always something to howl about

This Unchained Seattle Lender Built A Huge Following, By Quoting Rates

Rhonda Porter, of Mortgage Master Service Corp. in Seattle, is speaking at BloodhoundBlog Unchained Seattle, on February 12, 2009.  BloodhoundBlog readers see Rhonda commenting here and Rain City Guide readers know her as the resident mortgage guru.  I know her to be one of the most savvy Loan2.0 practitioners; that’s why I chased her to speak at Unchained Seattle.

I interviewed Rhonda about what she does that WORKS, not what she does that’s cute.  At BloodhoundBlog Unchained we talk about things that are as practical as a jackhammer on a construction site.  When you hear Rhonda, you’ll learn that she ‘s a lunch-pail carrying, hard-hatted foreman, building relationships through her social media efforts.

Listen to my fifteen minute discussion, with Rhonda, here.

If you haven’t reserved your spot for Unchained Seattle, you just might be shut out.  Over 75 people have raised their hands and seats are going quickly.  Contact Scott Cowan if you’d like to see us on February 12.

The fun doesn’t end after BloodhoundBlog Unchained Seattle!  We jumped on the chance to be a sponsor of Seattle REBarCamp, the next day.  Todd Carpenter describes the ad-hocratic learning experience that is REBarCamp:

RE Bar Camp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees

BloodhoundBlogUnchained is proud to be a sponsor of this effort in the Emerald City.  Greg and I will be there to join in all the fun!

    Hey Brian, I know about Unchained Phoenix in early May and am planning on attending, but are you guys planning on making it to Atlanta anytime soon? Would you like some help putting together an Atlanta event?

    I’m looking forward to meeting Rhonda (and others) at REBarCamp Seattle next month.

    However, despite Rhonda’s fine blog content and informative Twitter updates, my first question will be, “What are you bringing from your broad culinary repertoire for us attendees to eat?”

    Ron, Well my hubby (Rob Porter) may go hungry thanks to his comment on this post!

    I enjoy tweeting about what dishes I’m working on and you’d be surprised at how “sticky” those tweets are.

    Consumers love them too–they’re conversation starters… in fact, one of my clients wanted to know about my baby back ribs so I wrote a post for him (I’ve started a cooking blog which a post on every blue moon–in my spare time).

    Rob Porter,

    Thanks for your post. The North Admiral “phantom belch” mystery may be put to rest once and for all. Imagine, all this time I thought it was a lonely loan sea lion.

    OMG Craig! I’m looking forward to seeing you at Seattle Unchained and RE Bar Connect 🙂
