"The 2012 Loan Originator Survey has been released by Mortgage Daily, providing insight into issues impacting mortgage loan officers. The survey was sponsored by StreetLinks Lender Solutions and co-sponsored by Champions School of Real Estate."
"According to survey finsings, nearly 60 percent of the originators who participated in the survey indicated they earn at least $100,000 annually. Many said that they would have earned more if it weren't for the Dodd-Frank Act—though a small share has actually profited from the law. Appraisal requirements appear to be putting an even bigger dent in income."
