Landover has been around for a while now and is affiliated with Coldwell Banker. They are partially owned by the same folks that own Coldwell Banker Bain Associates and Coldwell Banker Barbara Sue Seal Properties. This makes it convenient if your real estate broker works at Coldwell Banker.
More important then the company is the actual broker you are working with (do you feel comfortable with that person, do they communicate in a manner that you understand, do you feel you can trust them) AND who is providing(underwriting) the loan you are thinking about. Banks and Mortgage companies are changing loan products daily. You need to be working with someone who is able to find you a good product for your situation and also who is able to find another one quickly in the event that yours 'disappears". (and believe me, this happens more then we like).
So, just as you would interview a realtor before using their services, interview the mortgage broker to be sure you can work with that individual and company.
Hope this is helpful, if you have any additional questions, please feel free to call or email me.
All the best,

Good reputation or bad the Mortgage Lenders are having a tough time of it. Banks are making them committments and than canceling on them at the closing table. I do nto care of it is a mortgage lender or a bank ....right now do not work with anybody that does not have the ability to underwrite and draw documents locally.
Compare rates yes but rates are only 30% of the story right now.
Be careful Sarah and best wishes...
