The owners, (pictured, from left to right) Kevin Britton-Simmons, Todd Britton-Simmons and Brian Britton-Simmons, are no strangers to the lender-matching game. One advantage of online shopping is the freedom it provides to browse and learn about products without the fear of being accosted by salespeople. But when it comes to shopping for loans online, many people’s experiences have been far from pressure-free ― at least until Ask a Lender was released in November 2017.
By just about any measure, Colorado’s economy is thriving. The Centennial State — the nickname Colorado earned by becoming the 38th state in 1876, 100 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence — had the third-lowest unemployment rate in the nation as of this past October and the third-fastest growing home prices as of second-quarter 2017, according to the most recent quarterly business report from the Colorado Secretary of State.
U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) home loans account for more than 10 percent of all mortgages in America and also tend to have the lowest delinquency rates. The only time most people hear about VA loans, however, is when there is a problem, like recent reports about veterans falling prey to loan churning, which is the practice of pressuring veterans to refinance loans to generate fee revenue for lenders.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
