I am a mortgage broker. Certain local banks and credit unions want to refer loans to me. ...I could swear there used to be a RESPA checklist that outlined the things a person had to do in order to earn a fee, and of this list you had to do, I think, 5 of the entire list in order to legally earn a fee.
