A recent announcement from
Brokers Rallying Against Whole-tail Lending, or BRAWL, warned mortgage brokers about how wholesalers with retail divisions are stealing customers.
The message said that wholesalers should not originate more than a fifth of their business from the retail channel and promoted a group of "good wholesale lenders."
"Mortgage brokers have known about whole-tailers' shady tactics for years, but we just didn't have a voice before," BRAWL founding member Anthony Casa said in the message. We're speaking up now, and urging brokers to avoid doing business with whole-tailers, because they're setting themselves up for long-term failure by doing so."
