What were you doing during the 2008 financial meltdown?

Perhaps you weren't invested in real estate so you weren't affected. Or maybe you got started buying real estate right after the crash and took advantage of record low home prices due to all the foreclosures. Or maybe you got hit hard like millions of Americans, handing the keys to your property back to the bank. Either way, it's important that we don't forget what happened just 10 years ago.

Just like me, today's guest was in mortgage lending during the financial crisis. She had helped her family invest in homes in her own name and when they couldn’t pay during the crisis she was hit really hard, and just like me, she learned some tough lessons.
