Why does everyone HATE mortgage profesionals?

Mortgage and Lending with First Meridian Mortgage

I'm not quite sure how the bad rap started, but when I'm hanging out with friends and someone will ask me what I do for a living I sorta mumble and quickly change the subject.

The funny things is I don't exactly know what I'm embarrassed of, I just know its something I should stay quiet about.

The weird thing is I know my job plays an extremely important part of assisting people in purchasing their homes. and heck if it weren't for the good loan officers there would be lots of Realtors out there who did their job to perfection, but were getting held up because the  financing was getting screwed up.

That's whats so screwed up about this whole phenomena.

So if your up to it.. Lets hear what everyone thinks.. It may give us few loan officers left out there some good ideas.

It's amazing when I ask a mortgage professional or a realtor to write or state their job description; the responses are so far away from their actual job description.

What is a Realtors Job Description???  Finding people who are planning on moving and helping them. Period.

What is a Mortgage Bankers Job Description???  Finding people who are lending options and helping them with their best options.  Period.

Yael, the government has done a great job in the media blaming mortgage professionals for the loan programs that they forced the lenders to offer. They blame us for the real estate melt down, for terrorism, for the blizzard, for Katrina and for the earthquake. So, people who cannot think for themselves or do not do their own research think we are all criminals.
