Reviews & Ratings Directory™ (RDD)

Why do some companies have only 1 Review & Rating?

Some of the companies may have 1 or 2 Reviews & Ratings due to an obvious reason, and that's because only 1 NSA has posted information their recent closing experience. Members shouldn't be discouraged by seeing low ratings at all. Read the review and judge for yourself. As all of the RR posted are to give you an idea as to how this company operates, or deals with a situation. Some reviews are not as detailed as we'd like and others are like a page from a book, which is what we prefer.  IF there are no ratings, that means no one has worked for that particular company...yet, and YOU COULD BE THE FIRST!.  Another reason may be to simply forgetting to post a RR, especially if its EOM, as this is a very busy time for most NSAs. The latter is why we often post in our FB group, simple reminders, for members to post their RR when they can as this information, even if its just one RR, helps us all! It truly takes a village.

When I contact some of the companies listed, they say they're not accepting any new NSAs or use their own in house?

When faced with this particular challenge, its always a good idea to keep an open mind and whatever you do, do not get frustrated nor immediately hang up. The goal is to get to the person who does the scheduling of NSAs.  Advise the person on the other line, you'd like to speak with or leave a message for the senior escrow officer, managing escrow office, or closing coordinator. When transferred to that particular person, write down their name, if they pick up or you get their voicemail, take a breath, speak professionally, clearly and slowly, and in your most friendliest voice, let them know you're a professional NSA, which areas you cover, fees (if you like) and leave your cell phone number so that they can call you anytime

If there is an email listed in the companies profile, you should ALWAYS follow up with an email, once a week. This is part of the marketing process, and you just never know when you'll land that big money deal, and believe us, this does happen!

How come when I try to print, it says it'll print out over 100 docs?

That's because you can, but it'll be a mess and unorganized unfortunately. However, members CAN print or copy any companies profile along with the reviews & ratings listed therein, by following the below instructions:

  • Click on the double arrow to the left of the name of the company, once you do this, that companies information will pop up on your screen.
  • Highlight the information you want to copy or print.
  • Once the information is highlighted, right click (your mouse, not your heels lol), and you'll see the option to either copy or print that particular information.
  • You can either print a hard copy of that companies information, or choose to save it as a pdf, or copy and paste the highlighted info onto your own Excel or Google Spreadsheet.

For proprietary reasons, the RRD is not downloadable. 


How do I know that the Reviews & Ratings posted are legit?

ALL of our members are thoroughly screened before they are approved for membership, which is one of the reasons why we have so many questions on our application. Each member is vetted to make sure they are actively working NSA's and not owners of any companies listed therein. We trust each our members to be truthful and honest about their working experience, and ask that all of our members do the same for each other.
