What does the process of becoming a mortgage broker look like? I know there is pre-education and continued education. How long does the initial education, test taking and general licensing usually take and how much does it usually cost?What does employment as a mortgage broker look like? I am interested more in working from home that at a brokerage. I know several realtors who would prefer to work with an individual they know personally rather than send their clients to brokers they don’t know very well. Is it realistic to work from home under these conditions?
