THE CONCEPT Your success is our business!! The Girl Friday Concept offers small businesses and busy professionals personalized, virtual administrative solutions as a convenient and affordable alternative to having the commitment and expense of a full-time, in house employee. Discover the countless ways to delegate those essential tasks robbing you of time so you can start generating revenue and conducting business the way you always envisioned. No matter how often or infrequent, we offer service plans to accommodate any business challenge. See about page on our website. M Ravelo Info@GirlFridayConcepts.com THE JOURNEY The unanticipated “Girl Friday” mission began in 2004 upon my employment as Loan Processor and Assistant to a local Mortgage Executive who aspired to one day open her own Mortgage Brokerage. In 2007, the conquest began with the new office lease. The 2000 sq. ft. space was a blank canvas consisting only of a concrete floor and concrete walls. As “wing-woman”, literally from cornerstone to completion, I contributed to every process concerning the formation of the company. In 2009, I assumed this role again during the acquisition-merger of one of our major local competitors. Responsible for day to day operations ranging from Client and Vendor Liaison, Loan Processing, Doc Drawing and Funding, Quality Control, Compliance, Network Administration, Accounting and Director of Marketing. Nearly 10 years in Mortgage Lending, my experience is well-rounded in Real Estate procedures, including notarial criteria that Lenders, Title Companies, and County Recorder Offices require to fund a loan. In short, whether it's a morning donut, building a company from a concrete floor, up, or a company merger, there is no need to look any further. Proficient in every facet of the development and operation of a professional entity.
