Mortgage Broker for finding mortgages?

Deal Score0

I think that is what they are called….. they basically look for the best mortgage for YOU? i want to find one that does that. I live in Richmond, VA. Any advice or suggestions?

    A good correspondent lender or mortgage broker can pre-approve you (free, immediate, and you have no obligation), and shop your loan to many Investors (Big Banks and wholesale lenders).

    Sounds like you are a first-time home buyer. You may want to check out the FHA programs at

    Also, each state has first-time buyer programs.

    Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss the process.

    I use a mortgage broker to buy houses. A mortgage “banker” loans you their own money. Bank of America is usually a banker. They have your “future” mortgage money sitting in their bank. A mortgage “broker” loans you someone else’s money. In theory , they can go to 100 different sources to get your loan. Either type is supposed to look “for the best mortgage for you”. There are over 80 in the Richmond area. Your friends and neighbors can help you best. The name of the company is not always the most important thing; you want the name of the person who is the most helpful, smartest, and works 6 days a week.

    I’m a mortgage broker myself and have worked with brokers across the country. If you want honest, personal service and someone that knows this industry inside and out, call top flight mortgage, 1-866-TOP-LOAN (867-5628), ask for kent laraway, he’s the owner and licensed to do business in md and va. web site is, I’ve worked with kent for 3 years, hes nothing but honest and ethical.
    I don’t go recommending brokers on a whim, but it sounds like you could use someone that will guide you through the entire process and kent will put you in the best financial situation possible.
    Give him a call if you want to see what you think, if he asks, tell kent that Jeromy from Timberlink sent you. good luck
