(C-Loans Client Letter)

You are receiving this letter because you are a commercial mortgage broker client of either Blackburne & Sons or C-Loans, Inc. Removal instructions are below.  Today we'll explain how you can get TWO free training courses or lists just for entering one commercial loan into C-Loans. And as always, we have lots of great jokes and funny pics, plus a creepy video of the largest snakes on earth.


Joke Du Jour

The Donald is walking out of the White House and heading toward his limo, when a possible assassin steps forward and aims a gun. A secret service agent, new on the job, shouts, "Mickey Mouse!" This startles the would-be- assassin, and he is captured. Later, the secret service agent's supervisor takes him aside and asks, "What in the heck made you shout Mickey Mouse?” Blushing, the agent replies, "I got nervous. I meant to shout, "Donald, duck!"


She's Gorgeous, But... (read her shirt carefully)


Underwriting Manual, Marketing Course, Fee Agreement, List of 750+ Lenders - Choose TWO

If you register on C-Loans.com and submit a real-life deal to six of our commercial lenders, we will give you a choice of TWO of the following:

  • Commercial Mortgage Underwriting Manual (sells for $199 on our site)
  • Commercial Mortgage Marketing Course (the PDF to our $199 course)
  • Mortgage Broker Fee Agreement (our fee collection course sells for $199)
  • Regional List of 750+ Commercial Lenders (different from the 750 banks on C-Loans.com)

Don’t get confused. If you once filled out a little form to get a free list of 200 commercial lenders or a free commercial loan placement kit, then you have NOT registered on C-Loans. Submitting a commercial loan using C-Loans is a six-step process (but it still only takes about four minutes). Click here to register on C-Loans.com and to submit your commercial loan. Once you have submitted your commercial loan to six of our lenders, please email Tom Blackburne and indicate which of the two free gifts that you want.

Turtle Joke

A baby turtle was standing at the bottom of a large tree and, with a deep sigh, he started to climb. About an hour later, he reached a very high branch and walked along to the end. He turned and spread all four flippers and launched himself off the branch. Fortunately he landed in a pile of soft, dead leaves. The determined little turtle shook himself off, walked back to the bottom of the tree and, with a sigh, started to climb. About an hour later, he again reached the very high branch, walked along, turned, spread his flippers and flung himself off the branch. Again, he landed on the bottom, shook himself off, went to the bottom of the tree, sighed, and started climbing. Watching sadly were two older birds. The Mommy bird turned to the Daddy bird and said, “I think its time that we tell Junior that he was adopted."

Memorial Day Joke

Pregnant Girl Joke

A 25-year-old Jewish girl tells her mom that she thinks she is pregnant. Very worried, the mother goes to the drugstore and buys a pregnancy kit. The test result shows that the girl is in fact pregnant. Shouting and crying, the mother says, "Who was the pig that did this to you? I want to know!" Without answering, the girl picks up the phone and makes a call.

Half an hour later, a Mercedes stops in front of their house. A mature and distinguished man with gray hair and wearing a yarmulke steps out of the car and enters the house. He sits in the living room with the father, mother, and the girl and tells them, "Your daughter has informed me of the problem. I can't marry her because of my personal family situation, but I'll take charge. I will pay all costs and provide for your daughter for the rest of her life. "Additionally, if a girl is born, I will bequeath two retail furniture stores, a deli, a condo in Miami, and a $1,000,000 bank account." "If a boy is born, my legacy will be a chain of jewelry stores and a $25,000,000 bank account."

"However, if there is a miscarriage, I'm not sure what to do. What do you suggest?" All silent at this point, the mother, placed a hand firmly on the man's shoulder and tells him, "So, you'll try again."


Buy Commercial Leads For Just $1 to $9 (Plus 37.5 Bps. Per Closing)

Commercial leads for just $3? That’s amazing. The bad news? So many lead buyers cheated us on our closing fee that we were forced to raise our minimum credit score to 700 and our minimum net worth to $700,000. (And afterwards our income from closings skyrocketed!Do you qualify?  

But what if you don’t qualify? If you enter two loans in C-Loans.com, submit them to six C-Loans lenders, and close them with C-Loans lenders, we will allow you to start buying our cheap commercial leads. It’s not an exaggeration to say that getting approved to buy leads would be one of the most positive things to ever happen to you in business. Les Agisim has closed 51 commercial loans for C-Loans. Jason Bengert, Paul Elis, and Rick Gnafakis have each closed more the 40 commercial loans for C-Loans.

Let’s summarize. If you submit a commercial loan using the six-step C-Loans process, you get to choose TWO prizes from the list above. If you close a second deal, you can start to buy leads from C-Loans. If you close 5 commercial loans for C-Loans, we’ll list you on C-Loans as a Proven Broker. And if ever get listed on C-Loans as a Proven Broker, you’ll be set for the rest of your business life. Every day perfect commercial loan applications will arrive in your inbox.

Baby Daddy Joke

"Will the father be present during the birth?" the obstetrician asked solicitously. "Nah," replied the mother-to-be. "He and my husband don't get along.”


We're Now Making Business Purpose Rental Home Loans in All But Eight States

These loans are sometimes known as buy-to-rent loans. For the past 37 years, Blackburne & Sons has exclusively been a commercial lender. This has now changed. We are aggressively seeking non-owner occupied home loans in California and most other states.

The property has to be non-owner occupied, and the purpose of the loan must be for business. The nice thing about business purpose home loans from Blackburne & Sons is that our loans have a 15-year term and no prepayment penalty.

Got a commercial deal nationwide or a business purpose, non-owner-occupied residential deal in one of the above four states? Please call your loan officer:

Orange Joke

Q: What's orange and sounds like a parrot?

A: A carrot!


Free Mortgage Broker Fee Agreement

You probably think that fee agreements are designed for the situations where the borrower closes the deal and doesn’t pay you. This rarely happens. What happens far more often is that a borrower flat-out lies to you or he cancels on you. I have used my fee agreement to successfully obtain judgments of over $1 million in fees. I’ll trade you my famous fee agreement for a bona fide banker making commercial loans.  Hint: You are NOT a banker.


Shower Joke

Q: Why do men take showers instead of baths?

A: Because peeing in the bath is disgusting!


Free List of Over 750 Commercial Lenders

We’ll trade you a free Regional Blackburne List for the contact information of just one banker making commercial loans.


Final Funny

I was eating lunch on the 18th of February with my 10-year-old grandson, and I asked him, "What day is tomorrow?” He said, "It's President's Day!" He is a smart kid, I thought to myself. Then I asked, "What does President's Day mean?" I was waiting for something about Washington or Lincoln, etc. He replied, "President's Day is when the President steps out of the White House. If he sees his shadow, we have one more year of unemployment.”
