Kuranda Mortgage. Independent, is NOT owned by a Real Estate company ,and not influenced by a Real estate company. There is no yearend branch bonus given to Realtor employees for mortgage and title numbers at Kuranda. That is reflected in the lower mortgage rate and fees. 610-975-9940

For example, Kuranda has stand alone offices. You will find Prosperity mortgage IN the Long and Foster Realtor building. That is an undisputable fact. http://www.kurandamortgage.com. We USED to be a direct lender for 10 years, but by choice, went back to broker for much, much better pricing for the consumer.

The major reason independent Kuranda has closed 26 thousand loans since 1996, and been independently successful equals no Realtor props, and no Realtor influence.

ALS2985, I don't really understand your statement/Question. Almost all lenders are either Mortgage Bankers or Mortgage brokers who represent many different lending institutions. As previously stated working with a good, professional and experienced mortgage representative is key to getting pre-approved at no cost and MOST Important will deliver what they say on time and without a lot of padded and un-necessary fees charged to you.

Not all Realtors are the same and not all Mortgage representatives are the same as well. There are some representatives that do not deliver what was promised as well as increased fees or rates then what you agreed.I can attest after 25+ years of full-time in the Real Estate Industry, that Eric May delivers what he promises and will tell you right off the start what are your best options in your purchase. IE, FHA, VA if you qualify or Conventional financing which includes USDA housing or any other special opportunities.
