Please, please, PLEASE....listen to your Realtor when they give you recommendations for mortgage lenders. We will usually have a handful of lenders that we will encourage you to contact. We do not recommend these lenders because we are friends with them or get kick backs or anything like that. We recommend these lenders because we have worked with them many times and know that they are good at what they do. We recommend these lenders because they return phone calls and emails promptly and provide updates throughout the process. We recommend these lenders because if a problem does arise, they are quick to notify us and quick to offer advice on how to remedy these problems. We recommend these lenders, because like us, they work morning, noon and night and yes some even on weekends to get your deal done.
Too often, we run into lenders who do not update us, do not return phone calls/emails for days, and sometimes don't even tell us when there are problems or hiccups in the loan process. That is a problem for us, and more importantly, a problem for you and your loan. You MAY have a lender who does everything right, but we have several. So please, listen to us when we give you recommendation.
Your friendly neighborhood Realtor.
