A bit about Hilton:

HiltonHollisThe designer is a native of Mississippi, where his love of sewing and design was nurtured by his grandmother, a master quilter. “I always dreamed of moving to New York to be a fashion designer,” he says. “I didn’t know how I’d get there, or when, but I had a subway map pinned to my wall. Before I was 13, I knew the city by heart.”

In 1997 Hollis moved to NYC and began his career in the fashion industry by attending Fashion Institute of Technology.  He holds a degree in Fashion Design from New York’s FIT.

Wherever his career led, Hollis never lost sight of his goal to head his own business. In fact, he launched his own eveningwear line when he was just two years out of college. Unfortunately, time wasn’t on his side then: “I opened the showroom on September 10, 2001,” he says. “Like just about everything else in New York it all came to a screeching halt the next day.

Over a decade ago, Hollis’s dream of launching his own company was reborn. “My aim is to make a product that is specifically targeted to the Hilton Hollis customer and to give her clothes that she can integrate into her wardrobe and wear happily for years,” he says. The line has the contemporary feel, classic fit, and technical virtuosity that are hallmarks of the Hilton Hollis style. Every collection features flawless tailoring, luscious imported fabrics—many of which Hollis designs himself—and they transcend the off-the-rack niche with exceptional attention to detail.

Hollis brings a matching passion to the business side of the industry. “It’s not enough just to imagine beautiful clothes,” he says. “It’s my job to produce the right garment for the right customer at the right price.”  That dual commitment to craftsmanship and price is working, as Hollis recently expanded his business into Europe by opening a new company in Portugal, where he resides part-time.

Hilton has served as a guest lecturer at FIT, Auburn University and countless museums. He remains committed to his alma mater and to the development of young talent.

We spoke last week about the “90 day countdown” to get all the deals into your system so they can close in 2020. All very important points and I hope you take that information and use it to the benefit of your clients and referral partners.

This week we need to add to that post an additional piece of very important information. Information we don’t always, if ever, get a heads up about. Interest rates on refinances WILL be going up in December. Make no mistake about it, the recent “tax” on refinances by the agencies has only been deferred to December, not eliminated! This is a very important distinction!

Now more than ever it’s important to understand this important timeline and work within BOTH timeframes and coach your clients and referral partners about it. We know for a fact that there will be a fifty basis point increase in the cost of refinancing in December! Here is a useful article you can share.

So we know that about 60% of loans being done right now are refinances; would it be a really good idea to let your clients and referral partners know that the clock is ticking on a rate hike?

Many of you are using the “Forever Home Strategy®” to generate refinance and purchase opportunities. In the course of this important conversation, it becomes clear that setting a deadline before the refinance rate hike is important, but also generating listing opportunities and purchases for your Realtor® referral partners is a great use of your time!
