Bill Rice

Founder of MyPerfectMortgage.com

Bill has been in the financial services, mortgage, and fintech industries since 2000. Although this wasn’t his first profession (he spent his early career in the Air Force and other Intelligence Agencies doing counterintelligence operations), but he got hooked on the excitement of watching people get their personal finances in order and the freeing experience it affords them. He’s always available to write, speak, podcast, or video a segment on any financial topic that helps people control their finances instead of their finances controlling them.
