The Commercial Lending Profession In a Nutshell
Financing a college education, buying a new car and purchasing a home for your family are among the dreams loan officers help you achieve. Loan officers are often part of the supporting cast that helps finance the milestones in our lives. Frank Donnelly, former president of the Mortgage Bankers Association of Metropolitan Washington, recalls one loan settlement he’ll always remember. “The lady [purchasing the home] walked in with her son, who had on a suit and tie. She herself was dressed up in a full-length gown with a headdress,” Donnelly says. “And she said it was because she wanted to show her son how important it was to buy a house. When you do this day in and day out, you can sometimes forget about what a big deal this is to people.”
Loan officers advise, evaluate and authorize loans to people and businesses. They work in a range of settings, including commercial banks, credit unions, mortgage companies and car dealerships. The profession involves a lot of paperwork and managing logistics, and it also requires extraordinary interpersonal skills. Borrowing money can be a nerve-wracking experience, and a loan officer should make his or her clients feel at ease during the process while still educating them on their decision. “I like to meet with customers face to face,” Donnelly says. “It’s my job to make sure that they come to their next purchasing decision with more knowledge and wherewithal for the process.”
The need for loan officers is related to the health of the economy. Economic growth, population growth and low interest rates all create demand for loans and employment opportunities for loan officers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment growth of 7.7 percent between 2012 and 2022, and 22,900 new positions are projected in the coming decade. However, the growing use of loan underwriting software, which automatically underwrites loans online, could temper some of the job growth.
The pay scale for evaluating, originating and approving loans varies broadly. The median salary for a loan officer in 2013 was $61,420, according to the BLS. Top earners made a lucrative $122,770, while those in the bottom 10th percentile earned about $33,220. According to Donnelly, many loan officers receive their pay from commissions, so their earnings could fluctuate from year to year. Jobs in New York City; Lawrence, Massachusetts; and Midland, Texas, pay the top salaries.
75th Percentile $86,760
25th Percentile $44,030
Loan officers typically need at least a bachelor’s degree, preferably in a business-related field such as finance, economics or accounting. Mortgage loan officers need a mortgage loan originator license, which requires passing an exam, at least 20 hours of coursework and background and credit checks. Additional training takes place on the job.
Reviews and Advice
Donnelly says the best loan officers are tenacious salespeople, particularly since many are paid exclusively on commission. “It’s great to be detail-oriented, because loans today have so many data elements,” he notes. “You need to be good at following up, at communicating with your clients. ... And you need discipline.” Loan officers should also learn good customer service skills, which could lead to more business in the future. “Focus on doing a great job so you can get referrals, and treat people fairly,” Donnelly says.

The Real Estate Profession has expanded and offers one of the widest career selections in the business world today. Helping people buy and sell homes, office buildings, industrial property and corporation farmland, property management, land development, mortgage banking, urban planning, real estate counseling, appraisal and research are all aspects of a career in real estate.
Advantages and Rewards of a Career in Real Estate
A career in real estate provides flexibility and freedom to set your own pace. Income directly reflects your efforts, with no limits on what astute, hard-working men and women can earn. Successful people in real estate are goal-oriented, persevering, self-motivated, ambitious and people-oriented. The rewards of a real estate career are a potential for high earnings, status in the community, autonomy, time freedom, helping people, the intellectual challenge and the satisfaction from those accomplishments. Working in real estate allows for independence and choices of environment in which to work, such as affiliation with a large or small firm as a listed salesperson.
Education for a Career in Real Estate
Colleges and universities now offer a variety of real estate and related courses. At many of these colleges, students can specialize in a program that leads to a bachelor’s degree in real estate. Some universities offer graduate level courses. Contact your local public library for university and real estate college course information and directories. Professional Requirements for a Career in Real Estate Entry into the real estate profession takes preparation. As with other professions, licensing is required. Licensing requirements vary from state to state, but all require prospective salespeople and brokers to pass a written exam. For more information on licensing, contact the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials at 334-260-2902 or at their website. Some states allow students to take pre-licensing educational courses accredited by the state licensing agency before they qualify to sit for the exam. In other states, students can take these educational courses within a specified time after being licensed. In order to obtain a broker’s or sales agent associated license, more than half the states specify special education and/or experience or their equivalents. However, states are upgrading their license laws and prerequisites for both brokers and sales associates at a rapid rate. Current information is available from your local Board of REALTORS® or the Real Estate License Commission in the state(s) where you would practice.
Getting Started in Real Estate
Entry into the real estate field depends on education, training and interests. Most people begin as sales trainees in a brokerage firm. Other possibilities include office assistant, listing or rental agent, assistant in a department of a large real estate organization, or in the mortgage division of a bank or savings and loan. Continuing Education in Real Estate Formal education is available while working in real estate. The National Association of REALTORS® and its Institutes, Societies and Councils sponsor continuing education programs for members, and award designations for specialty areas of real estate. Continuing education increases knowledge and skills, improving earnings potential and enhancing opportunities for success. Careers in Residential Brokerage Helping people buy and sell homes is one of the most important and basic services a real estate agent performs. Agents are experts in the process of buying and selling property, financing, government programs, etc. The real estate agent’s expertise facilitates the transaction, saving clients time, trouble and money. Real estate professionals need to have a thorough knowledge of such areas as real estate law, local economics, fair housing laws, types of financing, mortgages and government programs.
