RLO Standards & Policies

  • New RLO’s have weekly/monthly metrics and checkpoints in the first 4 months of employment. This is referred to as the “Probationary Period”. Anytime an RLO fails the Probationary Period, the RLO will be offered an ILO position.
  • RLO’s who graduated from the Probationary Period, must maintain a minimum $1,500,000 total closed loan volume over the prior 3 months. An RLO may have 1 ‘grace pass’ every 12 months to refocus back on the basics and re-train with the team lead as needed.
    • This grace pass may not be used within the first 6 months of employment as an RLO.
    • If an RLO does not maintain the minimum $1,500,000 total closed loan volume over the prior 3 months and has already used their grace pass, they will be offered the ILO position.
  • An RLO who does not maintain a minimum $1,000,000 total closed loan volume over the prior 3 months will be offered the ILO position. There will be no grace passes.
  • An RLO can request the ILO position as desired.
  • An RLO can qualify for a Team Lead position after 1 year of employment if their total closed loan volume within the past 6 months is equal to or greater than $4,500,000.
  • Upon termination (whether voluntary or not), closed loan compensation will be paid out for any loans closed during active employment. Any loans that are still in processing or have not closed yet prior to termination, will be property of Society Mortgage. The Loan Officer to whom said loan gets reassigned will be compensated 10 basis points (BPS) instead.
