    👉 After being exposed to the painful process of obtaining a commercial mortgage, Mitch was determined to create a platform that empowered the borrower and changed the way commercial financing was secured. At the time, giving the borrower access to the capital markets while providing a superior lending experience was a problem that needed to be solved. With the help of a talented development team, Mitch was able to bring his vision to life. Mitch has been in mortgage banking for over 30 years and has overseen the closing of several billion dollars in loans. Drawing on this experience and surrounding himself with a highly skilled and diverse team, CommLoan has gone from strength to strength. Mitch will tell you that by taking the cutting-edge technology of the CommLoan platform (CUPID™) and combining it with good old-fashioned customer service, anything is possible. Mitch holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s degree in finance.

    "Married for 22 years. Father of three (2 daughters and 1 son) Oldest daughter is a graduate of The University of Arkansas in 2021 and is now a Grad student at UTD getting her masters in Audiology. My son is a Junior at the University of Arkansas majoring in Music Education and is the drumline leader for the Arkansas Razorback Marching Band. Youngest daughter is a sophomore in HS and plays oboe in the band and is a really good volleyball player!
    I am a HUGE Star Wars fan (geek, nerd, whatever). Grew up with everything Star Wars. I have two Dodge Chargers that are show cars. One is a white Charger that looks like a First Order Stormtrooper and I have won awards at almost every car show I have done in 5 years. The other is a Red Charger that looks like a Final Order Sith Trooper…I have helmets, light sabers, name it. I even have a land speeder! (I sent you pictures via text)
    Die Hard college sports fan….Love my Oklahoma Sooners and now that my kids go there, I follow the Arkansas Razorbacks (But I still cannot bring myself to yell “Woo Pig Sooie”…nope) Not sure what I’ll do if OU and Arkansas end up playing each other in the College World Series!!
    My wife and I bought Can-Am Spyders last year so we could ride in charity toy rides and for other causes. I in my down time (whatever THAT is) I love going fishing when I have the chance (and when it’s not 178 degrees outside). So, I fish from October 6th to October 9th if I want good weather 😊
    I have been a bouncer in clubs worked as personal security for people such as Randy White, Jay Novacek, and Bobby Dall from the rock band, Poison. I’m also a mobile DJ.
    1989-1992 Professional Wrestler (went by Chris Savage) in the old WCCW and GWF. Snapped my leg and I was done.
    1993-1997- Producer, technical director for the Dallas Mavericks, and fill In talk show host at 570 KLIF – Eventually had my own weekend show about CIGARS! And it was goooood!
    1997-1999 – Producer for Prime Sports Radio
    1999-2002 – Syndicated talk show host for the USA Radio Network (in 76 cities nationwide and locally on KRLD)
    2002- Present – THE MORTGAGE INDUSTRY (insert ominous music here)
    Started in the mortgage business by accident in 2002. I was in radio for a number of years with 570 KLIF in its heyday back in the mid 90s. Then hosted my own late night talk show on the USA Radio Network for almost 3 years. After that, I was the host of a wrestling show called Bonecrusher Sunday Night on 93.3 The Bone in the early 2000s. Around that time, I was asked to host a mortgage hour on KRLD as a fill in host for a few months and got to know Mike Anderson from Reliance Mortgage. My job was just to bring the show in and out of commercials and introduce the main players…Well, we hit it off and Mike eventually asked me and another couple of his loan officers to do our own show. That went for almost a year. I learned so much during that time that Mike offered me a job as a loan officer at his company.
    That was 2002. I was given the opportunity to learn and eventually lead the new Lending Tree division. I even went to the Lending Tree HQ in Charlotte, NC for training on their systems and processes.
    I left Reliance in 2004 and bounced around a couple of places until I found my niche at Countrywide Home loans in 2005. I went through the mortgage meltdown in 2008 (ironically at the same time, Countrywide was bought out by Bank of America) and survived! I went from loan officer to Team Lead, to VP of sales, to Unit Manager, in a span of less than 1 year. I made Circle of Excellence 3 years in a row. But in 2010, BOA went in a different direction from sales to loan modifications, and I wanted to continue to do sales.
    I left for MetLife Home Loans in 2010. Unfortunately,

    Episode 115: Rockstar Agent Stephanie Gilezan

    Episode 115: Rockstar Agent Stephanie Gilezan

    🔥🔥🔥🔥LIVE ON CLIFF’S NOTES🔥🔥🔥🔥
    🔥🔥🔥🔥Thursday @ 1:00 PM CST🔥🔥🔥🔥
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Stephanie Gilezan⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
    👉 Stephanie Gilezan began her commercial real estate career at just 21 years old and quickly became a force in the industry. After struggling to find a mentor who would commit the time to teach her, she promised herself that she would dedicate her career to helping others. That promise has shaped her entire approach to business. Today, Gilezan is a successful land developer, owns and operates a real estate team in the top 5% of producers in Kentucky and Indiana and is the director of growth at eXp Commercial, the commercial real estate division of eXp World Holdings, Inc.
    👉 Gilezan played an integral role in the launch of eXp Commercial in November 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. While few are able to lead a business through a successful launch in the midst of a global pandemic and economic hardship, Gilezan’s competitive instincts and resilient work ethic led her to accept the challenge. As a result of Gilezan’s efforts, eXp Commercial has become one of the fastest-growing commercial real estate brokerages to ever launch.
    👉 Fueled by her passion to help agents at eXp and throughout the industry become successful through education and collaboration, Gilezan focused her first effort at eXp Commercial on launching a free commercial real estate training program. The training program is open to all real estate licensees and offers them a chance to earn a certification from the National Commercial Real Estate Association (NCREA). Since launching the course in December 2020, more than 1,500 agents have earned the NCREA certification. She followed that effort by implementing the eXp Commercial eXcelerate Program, a four-week program partnering new agents with seasoned advisors to learn the basic fundamentals of building a successful real estate career.
    👉 Under Gilezan’s guidance, no need goes unaddressed. One of her most recent efforts at eXp Commercial includes negotiating an exclusive partnership with Enriched Data to build an advanced data platform that allows eXp agents to complete broker price opinions (BPOs) and valuations on almost any property in the U.S. in minutes. Additionally, Gilezan is collaborating with leading global ESG experts to develop ESG scoring on properties in the U.S. so eXp agents will have the ability to perform ESG audits and scoring for property owners. “Just as credit scores drive the rate at which we borrow money, ESG scores will drive the rate at which we value property,” Gilezan explained.
    👉 Gilezan also worked with AIR CRE to build commercial contracts and forms for 43 U.S. states, in addition to the existing seven states they originally serviced. “When Stephanie reached out to me about how she could arrange and assist AIR CRE in the ability to offer commercial contracts and forms in all 50 states, I didn’t believe her, but here we are 12 months after her initial phone call, and we are almost complete. I have never experienced this level of determination and skill in an individual,” Tim Hayes, CEO, AIR CRE.
    👉 Gilezan, alongside eXp Commercial President James Huang, leads the commercial division of eXp World Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPI). eXp Commercial is an agent-led, cloud-based commercial real estate brokerage with agents across the country – all connected through its metaverse platform, eXp World.
    👉 As the director of growth at eXp Commercial, Gilezan oversees the ancillary partnerships, technology and growth of eXp Commercial domestically and internationally. She has been a licensed broker her entire career with over 23 years of experience growing and managing real estate brokerages. Gilezan specializes in building real estate firms, scalability, license law, as well as product specialties in industrial,
