Most mortgage loan originators receive a commission on the loans they originate. The size of the commission and how it is calculated differs for each financial institution. Larger banks tend to pay their mortgage loan originators a salary plus a small percentage of the final mortgage amount. Smaller banks might pay a salary plus a percentage of the fees.
