As of this writing, there are already changes being contemplated with regard to the Dodd Frank and the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau guidelines. Working with lenders who are current will be very important for the agent to provide the best possible service to clients. In addition, it will be very important for the real estate agent to stay abreast of the continuous changes by referring to the websites referenced in this course on a regular basis and staying educated on such changes.
