    All Mortgage Brokers should now get Real estate licenses as well now and go into direct competition with Real Estate Agents and offer discounted commissions. Only desperate Brokers work for RE agents.

    I for one would not want to have to stand up in court and explain that despite working as a broker for a real estate agent, there was no conflict of interest in gaining a loan for a purchaser, even though the borrower might not be fully capable of affording to spend as much on a home. The pressure is on the broker to gain loan approvals so that 1) the selling agent gets his commission, and 2) the broker keeps on getting referrals. Too much risk for loans being written that are not "responsible".
