mortgage opportunists

I submit we're all "opportunists" to one degree or another. Geez, you make it sound

I agree. But I think that the mortgage brokerage business is actually just a flash in the pan thing...and now peaking as a "profession". Demand for mortgages will soon become a fraction of what they are now as the refinancing rush ends. And it's unlikely to return like it has wave after wave as interest rates went from 22% to 2% over the past 22 years.

So most of the the Diteck wanna-bees are gonna be gone. But they're making BIG money now (good for them...I love big money) but smugly THINK it's a stable "profession". It's not. It's like the daytrading craze of the late '90s.
