Sorry guys, but in my opinion agents don't care about rates. In my 17 years of meetings with agents, not one, has ever asked me a single question about my interest rates. They care about programs, service, communication, and getting loans closed on time. But never about rates and fees. I'm willing to go out on a limb here and say that I bet no agent has ever checked with their lenders to see who has the best rates and fees. I realize that many here have their answers seen by the public so it sounds great that you care about rates and fees, but that is not what I've been seeing.

I'm thinking the "either/or" isn't really necessary... 2 different "pockets" so to say.  I keep my marketing "solo line" but know that co-op advertising is helpful especially to agents new to the biz.
