At the Truth About Lending, we are licensed mortgage brokers rather than retail loan officers. What’s the difference? It means that we have many more options available for you and your family than if you were to go to a retail loan officer.
A retail loan officer like a bank or somebody is working for a direct lender wants to fit you into their products. We make it a priority to fit you into the correct product that fits your specific situation. When you go shopping, you want to make sure that you have all options available to you, not just the box that retail loan officers fit you in. If you want to ensure that all options are on the table for your need, be sure to use a mortgage broker (preferably us!) instead of a retail loan officer.
