It just struck me that I have never posted about my preferred lenders!
Many buyers don’t realize how important your choice of lender is. At the most basic level, you definitely want to make sure you get along well with your lender. Keep in mind that you will be relying on them to support you throughout the entire financial side of your transaction.
Two vital questions to ask when you are interviewing lenders is: when are you available? Are you quick with communication? When we’ve found a house you want to offer on, it is very important that your lender can get us a pre-approval letter that is updated to reflect the amount we are offering. (We don’t want to show all our cards with the full amount you qualify for if we are offering less!) If it’s the weekend or in the evening, is your lender going to be there for you? Chances are that if you are working with someone that is just one the clock 9-5, the answer will be no.
If you give the lenders below a call, please let them know I sent you. (I don’t get any kickbacks for recommending them, I just know we make a great team– and that’s good for everyone!) In no particular order, (two on the East side and two on the West, but please note, they can do most things virtually.)
