Last week, HousingWire launched our celebration of the housing and housing finance industries with “You might be a Realtor if…”

This week we salute those unsung regulatory heroes, compliance officers.

 You might be a Compliance Officer if…

  1. Your spouse is sick of hearing about QM and ATR.
  2. Thanks to the CFPB, you have more job security than a tenured a professor.
  3. At sporting events, you root for the referees.
  4. Is your SAR filed with FinCEN? You’re damn right.
  5. “Risk” is banned at your family game night.
  6. You’re working on automating the breakfast process.
  7. The paint can says “Put on two coats.” You wear two jackets when applying it. Just in case.
  8. You admire the Roomba’s pro-activeness.
  9. Your backup backups are backedup.
  10. You can have a whole conversation in acronyms – CHARM, ECOA, AML, BSA, ITF, CIP, FTC, EFTA, TILA, RESPA, etc.
  11. You’re not creeping on your kid’s Facebook page; you’re conducting “risk management.”

Whatever you do in housing, send us your job’s quirks. Drop us an email at editorial@housingwire.com. We’ll pick the best and include them. We can credit you or we can keep it anonymous, your choice.
