|For some, buying and selling a home can be a bit of a challenge. For Scott Kramer, Star Real Estate agent, challenges are his driving force. By nature, Kramer thrives in challenging situations. He also has a strong sense of responsibility directed toward helping others. These traits, when combined with over 20 years of real estate experience, become a strong force that’s hard to beat.
Kramer is also one of a select group of agents who holds a California Mortgage Loan Originator License (MLO). He went that extra mile through a rigorous process that involved the successful completion of a pre-license course approved by the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS), the passing of an NMLS-administered state and national exam and the completion of a national background check. He has been processing loans since 2004.
Kramer has recently joined the ranks of Star Real Estate’s south Huntington Beach office, located at 20951 Brookhurst Street, Huntington Beach.
“Star Real Estate has the strong resources that a large company can provide, while still having the heart of a small company,” he said.
That is important to Kramer. He didn’t start out in real estate. A graduate of Calhoon M.E.B.A. Engineering School, he became a ship’s officer for the Merchant Marines, but felt the need to do something more. Drawn by a sense of adventure, a desire for a challenge and a need to help others, Kramer became a river-rafting guide after his last sea voyage in 1987. He mastered the ability to safely negotiate rough river currents. He still enjoys guiding tourists safely through the rapids. And he continues to negotiate the best deals for his clients.
“I enjoy the art of negotiation and the challenge that each transaction brings,” he said.
His strong negotiator skills work in his clients’ favor, and he keeps a buyer’s best interest in mind when working on their behalf to obtain a loan.
“At the end of the day, I gain satisfaction by helping others. I look out for people and enjoy leaving them better off than they were when I first met them.”
Kramer also has a natural ability to put people at ease and make them smile, reducing the stress that may come with a major decision.
“I like helping people make decisions that are in their best interest,” he said.
