Lowell is partially correct but first establish a relationship with a Realtor you like. Then get referral from him of 1 or 2 lenders he has a ongoing relationship with. This helps establish a working line of communications between the three main players in your purchase of a home, YOU, YOUR REALTOR AND YOUR LENDER.
It is very important you select a Realtor that you feel confident will put forth his / her best effort for you. I would like to apply for the Realtor spot on your Team. Please look at the referrals I have under my profile and I think you will see that I do go the extra mile to make sure my clients get the best home for their dollar.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope we can meet soon to get aquainted and started on finding your new home. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to cll me at 757-812-0399.
