Finding the right firm to begin your career as a mortgage broker is critical. Of course, the company must want to hire you, but it really is a two-way street. You want to be picky about where you work. On a very practical level, you will be giving the company almost half of whatever you earn. You want to be sure that you are getting the support and service you need in return.
Perhaps more important, you want to choose a well-regarded company that expects all its brokers to adhere to a strict code of ethics. The corporate reputation becomes your professional reputation.
