About Doug Smith


As a 20 year Mortgage Banker with Mortgage Sales, Mortgage Operations and Mortgage Leadership experience providing support and solutions to high volume referral partners, Doug earned the trust and respect of many in the realtor and new home communities. From 2000 through 2005, Doug built and managed the highest volume purchase centric branch in the country for Countrywide Home Loans, averaging $100 Million per month in closed loan volume. As an Area manager from 2006 until the acquisition of Countrywide by Bank of America, Doug managed a branch network with annual loan volume of $2 Billion. Doug’s role included oversight of both traditional “preferred lender” relationships and “Joint Venture” partnerships.


In this unique time in our industry, no one lender retains the capacities to adequately respond to the myriad of market complexities. We can no longer rely on traditional “road maps” to predictably navigate a market once organized as a group of interconnecting highways that lead to sustainable results. Our market now operates in a wilderness, where traditional maps are far less valuable than a compass.
