Hi Cecil, Congrats on taking the "correct" first step in the home buying process! My suggestion is that you speak first with your own trusted advisors...friends,family,colleagues. Ask them for a referral, they may know someone in the area who can help you. Your 2nd option,which is equally as effective is to contact mortgage brokers/companies.
Before you start giving out personal information,be sure to contact a few different companies. You want to work with someone you trust and someone who will work hard for YOU. Start a conversation,do some research and choose someone that fits your needs.
The most important thing to know is that you (the consumer) have choices.
Feel fre to give me a call if I can be of any further assistance!
