Bothell, WA--May 5, 2006--Residential-mortgage-industry professionals who volunteer to help others will soon have a chance to share their stories in the pages of Scotsman Guide, the leading resource for mortgage originators. In June, the nationwide magazine will launch a new department in its residential edition that highlights the mortgage industry's philanthropic activities -- "Helping Hands."
Each month, Helping Hands will highlight a mortgage company or mortgage professional that has volunteered on a local, national or global level. A preliminary call for submissions for future editions has already received a tremendous response from the industry.
Also appearing in Scotsman Guide's commercial edition, Helping Hands has featured: mortgage professionals working with orphans in Africa and Cambodia; a company that works with students in a low-income area through the I Have A Dream Foundation; and another that aided a veteran-rehabilitation program.
Mortgage professionals and companies who appear in Scotsman Guide have said they receive a great amount of industry response. Past Scotsman Guide author Rick Troutman, of HispanicLending.com, says: "Since my article appeared in Scotsman Guide, we have had literally dozens of calls and e-mails from brokers wanting more information.
Previous Helping Hands pieces and past articles can be viewed on Scotsman Guide's Web site: scotsmanguide.com.
