Imagine you are introducing your 'big bank' to your mother.
"I'd like you to meet Wells Fargo. He's been oftten accused but never convicted of many crimes against home owners and borrowers. I sure those are all just bad rumors circulated by people who don't like him."
Or you can can find a local lender who has a history of investing in the community through small business and home loans.
"I'd like you to meet 'Sun Rise" (fictious). He's been responsible for providing the home loan for Bob's pool and room additon and getting Paula's third grade teacher a home mortgage."
"Sun Rise is not reliant on penalties. fees and kickbacks from merchants for their economic survival."
If one's conscience can be distrubed, they should know the proper path to take.
Of course, everyone knows, if you looking to buy a home the local credit union is 'hands down' the very best option.
Best of success to you,
