Recently, we shared the list of Agent Genius writers (current and former) on Twitter, and today we wanted to turn our focus to the mortgage industry.

If you are on Twitter and want to learn from and connect with mortgage professionals, we’ve compiled a list of 15 from across the country- some we know in person, others we have gotten know via Twitter. Click here for the full list of 15 Mortgage People to Learn From on Twitter which will allow you to follow whichever of the 15 you choose to follow without having to go to their Twitter pages one by one.

    Wow! Can’t believe I was featured here! I feel honored and I can honestly say – Twitter is a time saving tool as well as a great way to network, learn and most importanly get business from. In the short amount of time I have been on twitter – the rewards and results have been amazing!

    Whoa! Little ol’ me?! Thanks AG! I’m humbled to even be on a list with some of these people. I agree with Naoma, the results have been amazing! That’s why I chuckle when people still say its pointless, but that’s cool, I prefer my competition stay away 🙂

    @Mark_Madsen – founder of one of the best FHA blogs out there

    I will recommend Jason Griesser (@mortgagebankrpa) who also has a blog at

    One of the few in the Mortgage Industry in the greater Philadelphia area that has adopted social media and is doing it right. Worth including in your list!
