Face to face interaction will always be wanted unless we are looking 100 years into the future where every ones perception of social interaction has been skewed due to social media.

Not possible. No way for a robot to perform every aspect of the job. Evaluating the viability of a business plan and the likelihood of the applicants to deliver takes a human like myself.

There is no way for a Mortgage Loan Officer to go away anytime soon. A Mortgage is to complicated to not have an actual person walk some one through the process from start to finish. Automation is great to bring in customers but not to complete the transaction together.

There is a large social aspect associated with the job. In addition, there are a lot of legal and other various parts of the job that are hard to automate.

There is no entry for a mortgage loan officer.

Consumer loan officers like credit card or unsecured debt peddlers might be automated. In a lot of regards they already are.

But if you're going to say that mortgage lending is going away just look at quicken mortgage. Their model is the future.
