Hope that helps.
Based upon our experience, the following are institutions we would recommend:
For co-ops, many of our buyers used HSBC with success. For homes or condos I would consider Wells Fargo. Again, this is based upon experience in our office.
For your own best interests, I would meet with at least two or three lenders and compare their rates and services.
Good luck, and feel free to call us at 917-593-4068 if you have have further questions.

The best way to find a good mortgage broker is thru a referral because usually if someone is recommending someone it is because they had a good experience with them. A good referral can come from a friend, family, your real estate attorney or your realtor. It is also important to deal with someone local because every area has different property types, closing costs, local taxes, etc. I would also recommend using a banker opposed to a broker because in the current lending environment I would think it is better to be direct with lender who has a good reputatuion opposed to a third party in the middle. You can also check some local real estate sites or blogs for referrals. If you are in Brooklyn http://www.brownstoner.com would be a good example.
