I was a State Certified Real Estate Appraiser (now inactive). I quit because of reasons stated in the article. I can assure you that all a mortgage broker want's from an appraiser is a bottom line that will make the deal work and they do not care how you get it but just get it. We used to say that a Mortgage broker would sell their sister into a house of ill repute if it would close the deal. I went into a restaurant a decade or so past and a broker that had lied and cheated me sat there with his wife. All of a sudden something happened to me. My eyes got large and smoke started coming from my nostrils. I went to his table poked my finger in his face and told him in no uncertain terms what a @%^&*((*&% he was and believe me I did not hold back. I never got my money but the look on that scum bags face was worth it. You could say what I did was rude and uncouth but I would do it again in a New York minute.

My blood pressure is elavating now so I will sign off now.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; Realtors can only dream of having the kind of influence over us that bankers and mortgage brokers have over most appraisers. I tried it for one year, found I had to choose between being successful and being honest, and got the hell out.

I hope all of the slimy scumbags that fueled this, the latest multi-billion dollar debacle, will wind up broke and living out of a car for a good long time. Wishful thinking, I know.

Maybe the old Arab curse: May the fleas of a thousand camels nest in your crotch!
