MVB Mortgage

I only recommend Ed Dean and Josh Burruss MVB Mortgage. Typically, what set lenders apart was the rates. However with today's economy and the low rates, everyone gas competitive rates. Thus, the prevailing factor of a good lender is service. The vast majority of loans are sold in the secondary market, so regardless of whom you work with in the beginning, you probably will change mortgage companies shortly after settlement. Service is the absolute most important aspect when purchasing a home.

You and your Realtor need a lender who is prompt when returning your calls, patient and informative with all of your questions. Ed impressed me in the beginning because whenever I would page him, I would get a return phone call very quickly. Ed and his team are always patient with my first time buyers and are always professional and helpful. When Ed and his team say they will do something, they do it. They close their loans in 3 weeks, which when you're submitting your offer to purchase, can make the difference between getting the house being passed over for another offer with a solid lender and quick settlement date.

To ease your mind, I not only always recommend Ed Dean and his team, but I ONLY use them, both with our original purchases and our refinances. I wouldn't recommend someone to my clients that I didn't trust to use myself.
