Need an excellent local lender? HIGHLY recommend these brokers.   Excellent with first time buyers and experienced homeowners and investors, all have had to clean up others’ messes and take over when the big banks don’t get it done.  It may seem counterintuitive to you that your own bank won’t give you good service on a mortgage, but in my experience, they really are not always the best.  Often a broker has access to literally hundreds of investor options t service you…whereas your own back may make a mortgage, but only on their own terms.   Save yourself the headaches and wasted time & money, and start here rather than with anyone else. You need good service. And you need local.
