Real estate is a very competitive business. To what or whom do you owe your success?

Seth Loncar: The entire David Griffin & Company Realtors team. The ability to wing it until I do my research has been successful for me throughout my years. You can’t know everything about everything, but all the information one needs to make a good decision or give good advice is at our fingertips. I have had the privilege of representing hundreds of folks, way smarter than me over my 20-plus years, hence I have received an education I value more than any college degree.  

Outside of day-to-day business, what are you passionate about?

Loncar: I love just about any sport including sports cars. I enjoy riding motorcycles at a high velocity, helping the less fortunate who are in fact willing to help themselves, maybe the YMCA, CASA, and some jail ministries. 

Who is your inspiration?

Loncar:  My father taught me everything I need to know. 

Why is finding the right lender crucial to your success?

Loncar: A good lender is crucial for a smooth real estate transaction. Clients expect us, as the Realtor, to know many details about their mortgage that only a qualified Mortgage Lender would be able to answer. Although, when working with the right lender, they will gladly teach you and inform you about current rates and trends so that you will be up to date. That is why working with the right/wrong lender can either create or destroy a deal. Over half my deals are cash, but the wrong lender is overall a recipe for disaster.
