My observation has been that although the home buyer would prefer to send their business to local lenders, the packaged incentives, services and suggested convenience offered by the likes of B&A appear to provide a greater economic benefit.

The first step is to keep your spirits high. Just by listening, landlords think they can tell the difference between a positive voice and a whiny pain in the neck.
