Bill, it is always a great idea to interview three or four different mortgage lenders. Many may have similar rates and fees (hopefully all low!), and then it will come down to who you feel you can work with the best. Getting a mortgage is like buying a home, it is all about the teamwork between the client and the service provider. You have to be able to communicate effectively.
Our team uses All Western Mortgage for our real estate clients. They are a local company that has been in business here for more than 30 years, they have REALLY low rates and fees, and many times they can get things done a lot quicker than the big banks. It is a more personal company, which is ideal - especially for first time home buyers who need some extra love. :)
Give Eric a call at 702-353-6011 and he can help you figure out the fastest ways to get your credit scores up. Realtors usually do know the best lenders - our business depends on it!
