There are plenty of mortgage bankers that offer great products and services with great pricing. So I would always recommend calling a mortgage banker when your seeking a home loan!

Shop around a little bit and see who you are more comfortable dealing with for your loan. You might also want to ask your realtor if they have any suggestions for a good lender.

If I were you, I would concentrate more on finding a reputable professional through either referral or here on Zillow than I would narrowing the type of company they work for.<br/><br/>I have worked with loans in all 50 states in the past and I would definitely recommend finding someone with NY knowledge as things tend to be a little different there than many other states.<br/><br/>Best of luck on your home purchase!

In my opinion you are probably better off using a Mortgage Banker. In order to find a great Mortgage Banker you can use the find a pro link that is at the top of the page as that would be a great resource. Fees, closing costs etc will be very similar between the bank and the Mortgage Banker. Although I am not licensed in NY if you have any questions feel free to contact me and I can help steer you in the right direction.&nbsp; Mon, 23 Sep 2013 21:33:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/traditional-bank-or-mortgage-banker/512573/ 2013-09-23T21:33:00Z Contact this Zillow Lender ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/traditional-bank-or-mortgage-banker/512573/ Contact this Zillow Lender from their profile page:<br/><br/><strong><em><u>[Spam content removed by Zillow moderator due to violation of <a href="http://www.zillow.com/howto/GoodNeighborPolicy.htm">Good Neighbor Policy</a>.]</u></em></strong><br/> Mon, 23 Sep 2013 20:02:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/traditional-bank-or-mortgage-banker/512573/ 2013-09-23T20:02:00Z
