I am sure there are other options out there. If you don't know one, call a local realtor and ask to be referred.
Realtors work with lenders all the time and we know which ones we are comfortable working with and which ones we tend to avoid. I work extensively with Residential Home Funding here in New Jersey and have found them to be excellent. If there is a local branch in your area I recommend them highly. If not (or for that matter if you just want to 'shop around' a little for the best deal) ask a realtor. There's no fee for the service and if you do find a lender, the realtor will be happy to help you find a home as well!... more
Queen Anne is a wonderful neighborhood. It offers a definite sense of community and vibrant local "scene" with some highly regarded schools. There are also some great parks and playgrounds - my 3 & 4 year old boys can attest to this. It is also an area that caters to most price brackets as there is a good mix of housing types. My wife would be more than happy to chat to you and pass on her Mom's perspective on QA, so feel free to give us a call at anytime.
