Blocking shots and making saves: No big deal for one 1st National Bank of Arizona employeeMortgagePress.comTroy Perkins,DC United Not only is Troy Perkins the goalie for the DC United Major League Soccer team, he joined 1st National Bank of Arizona (FNBA) just a little more than six months ago as a wholesale account manager assistant, supporting one of our top account executives, Jay Patel. So, why would an MLS player want to work in the mortgage business on the side? While he's been a member of the DC United team for three years and playing soccer his entire life, real estate is in his blood. "My mom has been a mortgage loan officer for more than 25 years, and my dad is a homebuilder," said Perkins. "I've always been interested in real estate. In my personal time, I surf the Web, researching market trends and possible investments." The competitiveness of the major leagues compares to the competitiveness of the wholesale mortgage industry. As with any professional sport, once you reach a certain level, players are fighting for positions. Only those with true talent and a strong work ethic make it. The same thing holds true in our business. "It's great to work for a company that is genuinely dedicated to helping their employees succeed," said Perkins. Just like in the major leagues, you have to be at the top of your game to succeed. With great coaching, skilled employees and the drive to just get it done, FNBA has a winning, competitive spirit.
