Investing In Your Emotional Intelligence, with Ron Toye

Purchasing a home or refinancing an existing mortgage can be a complicated and intimidating process. Ron and his team are here to show families a path to homeownership when others have only shown them the door. Ron and his team have helped over 1700 families with their home investment needs in the last 7 years. He is dedicated to creating custom mortgage solutions that fit his clients’ immediate and long-term financial goals. Ron’s mentor and Branch Manager, Andy Tuttle, imprinted a message on Ron’s heart and it’s what drives Ron’s passion: “What do we help people with? One of the biggest financial decisions of their lives! And how do we treat them? Like family!”

What you will learn in this episode:

  • Why investing in your emotional intelligence is important
  • How developing your emotional intelligence allows you to become a better listener and ask better questions
  • How Ron’s divorce caused him to begin examining himself and his level of emotional intelligence
  • Why it’s important to invest in personal growth long term 
  • What is toxic masculinity, and how to hold people accountable today
