>May the real lenders step forward please.
The number one question I get asked by a new mortgage broker is, are you a direct lender? This is an intrinsically important question that is asked, and rightfully so in this climate, and my answer is always yes. The problem that Mortgage Brokers face in this questionable climate is that many hear the same answer from others that turn out not to be direct lenders. The intent of this article is to provide our mortgage community with a guide, if you will, as how to mitigate and truly discern if the entity you are speaking to is truly a REAL lender.
