There is no one right way to seek out a best mortgage lender. It also depends on how you define "best." Are you looking for the best customer service, fastest process, best rate, lowest closing costs, special programs or a combination of any of these factors? Your answer will vary depending on your needs and what is most important to you.
A good start is to talk to family, friends, neighbors or coworkers on their experience. Some folks may not want to share specific details about their financial affairs but most should be willing to answer questions about if they were happy with the lender and loan officer. Also, be sure to ask about how the process went both during the application/closing phase as well as now that the loan is established - take into account that a great rate on the front-end may be at the expense of good service once your loan is closed.
Another suggestion would be to look up lenders online at sites like WalletHub or Zillow.com. Many sites rate and rank their lender partners allowing consumers to find great deals and great lenders.
