    I read and pass along your blog daily.
    I’m a broker and find the blog written on 9/15/2011 completely incorrect.
    I have over 7 lenders that I can lock a loan with, on the same day I take the application.
    I have also closed a loan within 7 days of application.
    If I take an application and none of my lenders can do it, do to overlays I will find a lender who can do it.
    If you look at the MNLS 1st and 2nd qtr report on what size of companies are doing the most business its shops with 1-3 LO’s.
    I assume Benchmark Lending is not a broker shop.
    I would hope you would check your facts before posting.
    I will now question all your blogs and I will stop sending it to all my realtors.

    Mark I simply love what you mentioned

    “I have over 7 lenders that I can lock a loan with, on the same day I take the application.”

    Does it hurt your ranking with the lenders when you drop the other 6? I currently have a mortgage broker working on a personal deal of mine and he said he cannot do what you just mentioned, I recommended this last week after waiting nearly 4 weeks for a response that should have taken 3-5 days.

    I feel whoever is eager and hungry for a deal that acts promptly should get the business instead of the hurry up and wait game!

    Good observations about individual loan officers. Unfortunately, many consumers go strictly after “the rate”.

    In an way, all these years of educating the prospective home buyer about getting “pre-approved” before looking for a home has backfired. As a Realtor, I now get lots of prospective buyer clients that tell me “I have a pre-approval letter from XYZ Mortgage.” No matter if I tell them my recommendations for a loan officer will come with personalized service including unmatched accessibility for questions or challenges that arise during the process.

    They just want the rate.

    I can understand Mark’s frustration. I used to be an HMC at Wells Fargo. Talk about a tough nut crack with Realtors and their despise to work with me, not because of me but my employer. I’m very happy to be a banker now and find that I get stuff done that would never have crossed my mind at the bank. I don’t understand the broker world at all and this have no opinion on that side. I’m just annoyed that the government has been on a witchhunt for all of us. Mark, the only question I have on your comment is that RESPA guidelines will not allow for a loan to close any sooner than 10 days from application. Good luck to all of you out there making it through this difficult period. :-)
