Where to shop for a Loan Agent?

I just went to a Redfin seminar and it was pretty well done.

 

Part of the seminar was to tell us how important it is to have a good loan agent with two BofA agents in front of us.

 

I wanted to ask what people are using to get their best rate from a "good" agent.

 

Are people using bankrate or lendingtree or are their other tools to find the best rate?

( I felt it was rude to ask this during the seminar )

 

I use the not-so-big banks for savings account to get the best rate, same applies to home loans?

 

Thanks!

I have success with Lending Tree in the past, especially if you go to LendingTree via United Milage Plus website, you can get miles.

Talk to 3 lenders and compare. Everyone is selling the loans to Fannie/Freddie and has access to the same programs and rates. The rates change daiky and sometimes more than once a day You want the lender that's going to get you closed. That's most important as you can negotiate the other stuff.
