About Angela Cohen

Mortgage Advisor

I was trained as a mortgage advisor at the Xinnix Academy in Atlanta GA in 2005. My six week training program included 90 different technical, financial, and business courses totaling more than 400 hours of education culminating in an intensive 3-part final exam. By completing this mortgage program I have earned the designation of Xinnix Certified Originator (XCO). What this training means for my clients is they are working with a mortgage advisor who has chosen to invest time, money, and energy in a career where the industry norm has been to have little or no training or education specific to the mortgage industry. The XCO designation puts me in an elite group of mortgage advisors across the United States, as only one half of one percent of the nation’s mortgage advisors have completed this extensive training program.
Prior to entering the mortgage industry I worked in the field of financial planning for eight years.   I am a Registered Para-planner and hold several NASD securities licenses. I believe my experience in the financial services industry is beneficial in helping my clients make the best mortgage decision for their unique circumstances.  I look at a client's whole financial picture to find a mortage that fits their life, finances, and future planning.
I believe education is key for new homeowners making the choice to purchase a home.  I teach first time home buyer classes monthly to help educate first time homeowners.  It is also crucial for current home owners making a choice to move up to a bigger home or refinance their current home to be educated.  The mortgage industry is ever changing and evolving and it may be a completing differnce experience than the first time around.  This industry requires an expert to help a homeowner through the process of purchasing or refinancing a home.  I educate current homeowners by providing current industry information and keeping clients informed. My belief in education is a cornerstone of my business. 
As a home owner I understand the home buying process from both a home buyer’s point of view and an expert mortgage advisor's point of view. My goal is to make the home buying experience pleasant and worry free for all my clients. I believe good communication is paramount to providing excellent customer service.
