Margie started her company with her father in 1984. At that time, there were very few mortgage brokers or wholesale lenders. They were mainly doing challenged credit (what is now known as non-qualified mortgages) with finance companies. Then, in 1986, they partnered with their first wholesale conventional lenders. That gave them pricing that was competitive with the banks, laying the foundation of the business that RMC now does.
Also in 1986, they became the second institution on the east coast to install a processing system that was foundational to the industry. The new software was a game-changer for the way the company did business. In the early 1990s, Margie was asked to become the founding President of the Maryland Association of Mortgage Brokers. The industry had started to become regulated and needed an organization to work with the state commissioner and Maryland legislative bodies to produce rules and regulations that were fair to lenders and protected the consumers. Margie also became involved in the National Association of Mortgage Brokers. She stayed active in the associations for over ten years, working on education programs, conferences, and legislation.
