Then they came for the REALTORS®!

 

First they came for the mid-level bankers, and I did not speak out-

because I was not a mid-level banker;


Then they came for the appraisers, and I did not speak out-

because I was not a appraiser;


Then they came for the Mortgage Brokers, and I did not speak out-

because I was not a Mortgage Broker;

Then they came for the Consumers, and I did not speak out-

because I was not a Consumer;


Then they came for the REALTORS® -

and there was no one left to speak out for me.

 

Then they came for the REALTORS®!

There is very little difference, today than when Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892-1984) wrote the original just different scape goats!

Today Dodd-Frank took away the consumer's options and choice about mortgage origination and control of their cost.

It's been twenty years now, since the Chairman of Countrywide made his speech about getting rid of the Mortgage Brokers, the very people that made him rich, to bring the origination fees back to the Banks. Today the Mortgage Brokers are nearly gone.

Then they came for the REALTORS®!

It's been even more than twenty years since the Banks wanted to get into/control real estate sales! Can the REALTORS® who didn't speak out for the mid-level bankers, for the appraisers, for the Mortgage Brokers, or for the Consumers really think all their finger pointing will protect them? Pastor Niemöller faced annihilation for 5 years in a Nazi concentration camp, may the REALTORS® be so lucky.

IE: MoPros Eat No Mo!!! New Amendment to Reg Z goes into affect April 1st. REALTOR, how long will you be eating?

Ahhh... those nasty Democrats.  They are SO responsible for absolutely everything that is either wrong with, or that threatens the economy.

Karen,

You got this one right!

But, let us not forget the Rinos and Compromisers who are even worse because they know better.

Very thought provoking post, William.   If we're not careful, we will in fact be next!  Very tumultuous times for the entire real estate industry...
