Meet the Member: The Adams Team
Integral to The Scout Guide Fort Worth’s mission is telling the stories behind the small businesses Scouted in each Volume. The story begins in print and continues online, after all. As you peruse Volume 9, we are thrilled to continue our story-telling mission with Member Spotlights.
Recently, we chatted with William Adams, Senior Loan Officer The Adams Team – Legacy Mutual Mortgage, a full-service mortgage company in Fort Worth, Texas. Here, he talks getting into the industry, Fort Worth, and what you need to know about home buying.
MEET THE MEMBER
The Scout Guide Fort Worth: William, we are so thrilled to have you and your team as Volume 9 Members! Let’s start at the beginning: how did you get into the mortgage industry?
William Adams: After graduating from the University of Georgia (go Dawgs!) with a degree in Banking & Finance and operating businesses across multiple industries, I set out to build an entrepreneurial, finance-centric, and people-facing career. The mortgage industry was a perfect fit, and I’ve been with Legacy Mutual since 2015. In that time, The Adams Team has helped numerous families build wealth through home ownership and real estate investments, which I’m so proud of.
The Scout Guide Fort Worth: Let’s talk more about the mortgage industry. What — if any — are common misconceptions about the industry — and your team’s role — that need to be addressed?
William Adams: One of the biggest misconceptions about the industry is that it’s a one-size-fits-all process. Yes, the industry is highly regulated and complex. However, my team specializes in creating unique, creative strategies for our clients to position them for wealth building. Whether they’re purchasing their first home or their tenth investment property; a newly single parent, or a veteran, we build a strategy to each client’s specific needs and life stage.
The Scout Guide Fort Worth: Who is The Adams Team client?
William Adams: Anyone looking to purchase or refinance a home, as well as build wealth through real estate.
The Scout Guide Fort Worth: What are the essentials to a smooth, stress-free loan process?
William Adams: Preparation is critical to a stress-free mortgage. Many think the loan process starts with finding a home you like, but we encourage prospective buyers to reach out at the beginning of their home search for a mortgage consultation to ensure we achieve both their home needs and wealth goals. This also enables us to prepare all of the necessary documentation for loan approval ahead of time and confirm that a buyer is collaborating with the perfect realtor that will help them find their new home!
The Scout Guide Fort Worth: What can homebuyers expect from working with The Adams Team?
William Adams: We strive to bring concierge-level service to the mortgage process. Purchasing a home or refinancing one can be a stressful time, it’s our mission to make their experience seamless and as stress-free as possible. To do this, we adhere to the highest levels of professionalism, integrity, loyalty, and confidentiality, but always inject fun where we can!
The Scout Guide Fort Worth: One of the many reasons we “scouted” The Adams Team for The Scout Guide Fort Worth! Speaking of… Let’s talk Fort Worth! What is the best thing about owning a business here in Cowtown?
William Adams: It’s an incredible opportunity and privilege to be personally invested in Fort Worth and work with the amazing people who have built this community. We are proud to be rooted in Cowtown and want to reflect that in every interaction we have with our customers.
