The lender plays a very important role in the transaction and should be carefully chosen when deciding to purchase a home.  Not all lenders are the same, while fees and rates are on top of most buyer's minds, so should availability, local knowledge and service.  Too often rates & fees is what drives the buyer's decision to use a lender only to find out their service & availability was subpar.  I am happy to recommend several choices for lenders who I work with and trust to take care of you.
