About mid-day yesterday I started receiving emails, phone calls, and even text messages from my friends about an article written in Sunday's Seattle Times by Elizabeth Rhodes/Seattle Time business reporter. The story covers the rise and fall of Merit Financial (and it's Founder and CEO, Scott Greenlaw), one of Washington States largest mortgage brokerages.
You are probably wondering why so many folks contacted me about the story? Scott Greenlaw was almost our neighbor. Although Scott never moved into his new home, and has yet to finish it, the home referenced in the article shares some property with our house. The same home was referenced in a Wall Street Journal article we covered earlier this year.
While the story reads like an unbelievable soap opera, in the end it's a sad real-life saga for all involved. Please read and provide some comments to the blog! Steve
