Honored that the President of the company that I have partnered with since 2008 decided to come down and be a guest on Rates & Reels. Tom VanDyk of VanDyk Mortgage Corporation is an amazing businessman with a wealth of knowledge and just an all-around cool guy.
We had a blast hanging out all day on the boat and back at Jensen’s Twin Palm Resort and Marina where Tom stayed overnight. Sounds like he loved the place except for them not having a hair dryer. Tom is in his 60’s and still has a full head of hair and is not afraid to use it!
The fishing was slower for us that day. A cold front had just finished coming through but we made the best of it.
The trip was worth it just to hear Tom yell “Holy Tamoly!” twice when he caught a Spade Fish. Holy Tamoly……Classic!
We caught some mangrove snappers and grunts as well. I also had a conversation with a Tomato Grunt. That was kind of awkward.
What impressed me most about Tom was that he basically broke into a coaching session with me over lunch. He has hundreds of employees but showed me how much he really cared about me and my business.
I would like to personally thank him and his team for everything they do for my business, team and family.
