Different people tend to have different views about the ‘best’ for them. In other words, the one that I perceive the best might not be the best for you (or the other way around). So, let us have this discussion with the premise that ‘best’ is a relative word. However, at the very least, we can agree that the best mortgage lending company is one that delivers a top-notch quality product and/or service at a fair price.
