What is a Mortgage Broker?

What is a Mortgage Broker

A Mortgage Broker is a registered agent who works on behalf of a borrower to obtain the best possible mortgage option for that borrower's financial situation. The Mortgage broker is a skilled negotiator and deals directly with the lenders in both standard and non standard borrowing situations. They have access to lenders who may not advertise nationally or be readily available to the consumer so finding the best possible mortgage option holds true.
