But in the absence of someone you're comfortable with, these professionals have shown the same level of integrity, character and professionalism that I demand of myself to you. It is illegal for any Realtor to get compensated for referring other professionals so these are voluntary referrals
a pre-approval sets the stage for every realtor to do their job. You see, Agents can't set up showings if they don't know how much you're cleared for... it has less to do with credit scores, believe it or not. There is much more criteria these days. Failure to follow established steps can result in penalties.
