Meet Your Loan Officer, Lou Barnes

Lou is our credit-market oracle: a new posting every Friday under the “Credit News” icon, written in the voice of a bond trader overdue for his martini. No fluff, no blue-sky predictions, suspicious of political partisans of all affiliations -- just real-time news, filtered through a crap detector developed during thirty-nine years of real estate finance.

Lou will be on the lookout for your e-mail all day, every day, and monitor the phone lines. Texting is beyond him. Phone is best, very quickly revealing your stress level, experience, urgency, sense of humor....
